Cape Town will be rocked by the Pro-X Extreme Games this weekend as dozens of the country’s most extreme athletes go ballistic in custom built arenas alongside a red-hot line-up of live acts and DJ’s blasting the airwaves at Zone 7, just North of the city.
Featuring the top local and several international exponents of FMX, BMX, Skateboarding (Halfpipe & Street), Wakeboarding, Supercross and MTB Trials, the mega-event runs the qualification rounds on Saturday with the finals and awards presentation on Sunday.
Amongst many others, the likes of “Sick Nick” De Wit will be throwing his weight around on the FMX track; Anthony Raynard and Wyatt Avis will be tearing up the Supercross; Devon Nassif and Nick Burton-Moore in the Wakepool; and from foreign shores, Kyle Forte and John Skvarla from the USA.
The action in the arenas will be non-stop between 10am and 6pm on Saturday, with a lunchtime break for give-aways from the host of sponsors and the Loaded Model Search, before the entertainment gets underway.
Showcasing the talents of The Little Kings, Hog Higgidy Hog, Van Coke Kartel, Haezer, Grave Danger, Lapse, Ashtray Electric, Blush & Bass, Trailerpark Celebrities and more, Pro-X Live will continue until at least 2am!
The gates re-open at 10am on Sunday and after the usual lunchtime activities, the best of the best will proceed to blow minds as they take to their respective arenas and vie for the 2010 Pro-X titles, prestige and cash in the finals.
The awards ceremony is set for 7.30pm, with more give-aways and general tomfoolery, before another bout of musical treats as the whole celebration ends with a BANG!
Tickets are available from Vida e Caffes or online at Webtickets and options range from R200 for the full weekend including the Pro-X Live entertainment, R150 for the Sunday or R450 for VIP status that enables you to spend time with the riders.
