red bull stomping ground in chicago 1 300x233   Red Bull Stomping Ground in ChicagoRiverwest Neighborhood, Chicago is the new site for the Red Bull Stomping Ground. The course will be designed by Fuzzy Hall as crews now begin to break ground at Elston and Augusta. The abandoned lot will become the dirt playground of BMX stars like Ryan Nyquist, Corey Bohan, Cam White and Anthony Napolitan.

Riders will be vying for the purse of $50,000. First place winner receives a $25,000 check. Expect the brightest BMX riders in the competition like Denis Enarson, Rob Darden and Cory “Nasty” Nastazio. Mike Aitken will be part of the judging team. Aitken was in a coma in 2008 but recovered. Lending a hand in the programme is Jamie Bestwick, BMX Vert legend and X Games gold medalist.

A qualifier round will take place on June 11. This will be free and open to the public. There will be only 5 spots available to qualify for Saturday’s final round. You can get tickets for Saturday’s event at RedBullStompingGround.com. The competition will begin from 4pm to 7pm on June 11 and 12 at Elston and Augusta.

“I expect this contest to be like no other contest I’ve ever been to before. Fuzzy Hall will hands-down build some of the sickest obstacles that we’ve never seen” said Napolitan. The new course will not be open for public use but the Dan’s Comp Rally Track welcomes anyone who wants to feel the flow of dirt jumps and tracks. It will be open for a week before the Red Bull Stomping Ground event begins.
