Motocross and Skateboard exhibitions
Two exciting extreme sports events will take place this Saturday, September 19th, 2015 in Buenos Aires.
Tony Alva, pioneer and icon of skateboard, one of the original Z-Boys and considered one of the most influential skaters of all times, will offer a motivational Demo and Talk, from 10 am to 5 pm, at the Skate Park in Costanera Norte. There will be live music bands, food trucks, and stands offering skate related products.
The Skate Park Costanera is located on Av. Rafael Obligado y La Pampa.
In the evening, the Red Bull X-Fighters Jams return to Buenos Aires to startle audiences opposite the Law School (Facultad de Derecho), on Ave Figueroa Alcorta 2263, Recoleta, with a spectacular display of backflips, and an incredible array of tricks. A specially set ramp will propel the riders - individually, in pairs or in groups - to about nine meters high, to make the most incredible stunts, to complete the flight about 23 meters ahead on another ramp called "receiver".
The dizzying display of jumps and freestyle motocross tricks is a full sample of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour, which for several years has become virtually the world championship in the field. Created back in 2001, the Red Bull X-Fighters concept has grown to become the biggest and most respected freestyle motocross tour on the planet. These events already have cult status in the cities they have visited, with top riders from the region - Gabriel Villegas from Chile and Edgardo Prevedello from Argentina - joining some of the finest shooting stars from the international scene, like Cameron Sinclair from Australia, Nick Dewit from South Africa, and Nick Franklin from New Zealand, to put on an insane show in front of tens of thousands of people.
The event starts at 7:00 pm, but make sure to be there early to secure a good viewing spot. Entrance is free.
