One such event, the Berming Man Banked Slalom, was so popular in 2017 that it’s being brought back for 2018.

Riders will have the chance to exhibit their control and sense of adventure on this course. The source consists of a gated section along with “The Boneyard” which provides an excellent place to show off your creativity and unique style.
