WORLD’S BEST THROW DOWN AT BATTLE OF HASTINGS

Sep 122017

The Battle of Hastings once again blew apart the normal contest format and created something so diverse and exciting that everyone in BMX wanted a piece of this ground-breaking event this year.

44 of the most creative, stylish and hard-hitting riders battled it out in the world’s biggest underground skatepark; The Source Park, Hastings for another year and over 100k viewers tuned in to watch the carnage go down.

With riders taking part like Dakota Roche, Greg Illingworth, Kevin Peraza, Alex Donnachie, Ben Lewis and Dan Lacey from Monster Energy, you knew the competition was going to be off the chain all weekend.

Split over 2 official days, the teams spread their time between a closed-set filming session in the smaller park and the main contest day in the massive old swimming pool, where the overall winners were picked over both days and awarded during the ceremony Sunday night.

Lacey was ecstatic to have the event return to his hometown once again and got the crowd going like no one else all weekend: “… so stoked to be part of this event again, it’s literally the best thing in BMX and the boys are all riding so hard… each one has their own angle on the course and there’s so many new lines being ridden. Battle of Hastings is the one!”
