Out with the boats and in with the bikes. The fourth annual Rumble in the Concrete Jungle kicks off the 2017 Whitewater Race Series, as bikes of all shapes and sizes take to the world’s largest manmade whitewater river for this one of a kind cycling race.
The Downhill Race will be a time trial from the top of the Competition Channel to the bottom. The course will be designed to maximize the full potential of the banked whitewater channels. While the elevation drop is minimal, the banked channel walls, wooden structures, jumps, and various other obstacles make for a unique and technical course unlike any other. Each participant will be given two timed runs; the best time being used for scoring. The participant with the fastest time will be named the winner in various bike categories.
Slopestyle Competition will follow the completion of the Downhill Race. Course markings will be removed from the channel and participants will be given free rein to interpret the channel and create and gnarliest line they can imagine from to to bottom.
