Linwood X-Games: Photos & Results
Linwood locals were treated to some extreme games recently with the X-Games returning to Linwood for its 3rd year running.
The vibe was good and collisions were kept to a minimum thanks to the enforcement of a clockwise flow. It’s a bit of a worry when you get that many bikers and skaters together in one small park but everyone seemed pretty chilled and it all worked out injury free.
Unlike most our events, the Linwood X-Games includes our fellow 2 wheeled friends for some BMX antics. Some amazing stunts took place in the best trick comp, free sausages were enjoyed by all and the Skate Skool was out rolling around helping the groms. The BMX’s stole the show with their ability to launch massive airs as well as a couple of backflips!
The White Elephant DJ school helped us out with a sweet as sound system and a rocking DJ for the day.
Cheers also to the Push Bikes store for supporting the event with some prizes for the competition and offering free bike checks as well as Cheapskates and Skullcandy.
This event was supported by the Hagley/Ferrymead community board of the Christchurch City Council.
