Freestyle AirBag BIG AIR Competition 2018

Velocity Valley is proud to open the Rotorua Bike Festival with this show stopping event! Big Air, Big Tricks, Big Risks followed by Big Applause, this is what its all about. The mammoth 15m x 10m Freestyle AirBag will be transported to the Lake Front Village Green for the 2nd time on Friday, 19 October 2018. A 6-metre high purpose built drop-in ramp will set the stage for riders to gather speed before choosing one of two ramps to perform their aerial stunts. Riders will have the opportunity to lay down some big tricks, impress the judges and compete for cash prizes and spot prizes.

If the 6-metre ramp seems to big don’t worry we have a smaller 3-metre drop-in ramp too, so no excuses for not being able to attempt this AirBag.

Free for spectators so bring the family down to the Village Green and be entertained. Our MC will ensure you are up to play with what tricks are being executed and he will have spot prizes to hand out also.
