2020 Elite Big Air Classic 02/01-02/20 RED LIGHT
Looks like this weekend will not be providing enough wind for a true BIG air comp. We need it to blow hard! Riders look forward to this event all year long. Some will drive, some will fly so we need to have the forecast hold up.
So what we will be doing is remain in a holding pattern until we see an awesome wind forecast. At this time we will not set a date.
Looking forward to seeing everyone training and progressing to the next level in the mean time.
