Here’s the best part, we’re also talking to the management at Putrajaya Challenge Park to allow us to camp overnight during the race. That’s right, the first day of the race won’t end at the hill. Enjoy BBQ for dinner, skate some bowls or even the freeride hill to unwind.
Here are some videos of PCP by Syamly to get you going:

About the downhill race:
In the interest of time and to make sure everything runs smoothly, we will be limiting the race to 64 participants ONLY.
Riders will be randomly seeded into qualifying heats. This means you will have to race to qualify.
The top riders will qualify under the Class A division, while the rest will be under the Class B division. This way, everybody gets to race!
Safety rules: Helmets, Knee pads and slide gloves are MANDATORY if you want to race. We’re also applying a no skin policy which means you gotta be fully clothed, long pants and long sleeves.
About the slidejam:
Best trick, longest standie, biggest air, etc…..more details to be announced soon! There will be no limit to the number of participants for the slidejam.
