just curious. i would love to join some kind of amateur race league, iv seen the sport in the Olympics and the x-games and although ill more than likely never reach those levels it looks like a blast none the less. so does anyone know where i might find some info? i searched google for a while but didnt really find anything.
the first thing you should do is to find a club, if there are such a thing available in your vicinity, they might just hook you up. At least thats the way i've known it to be done here.
And I can confirm that it is a blast, though very-VERY scary at times going top speed through the slanted turns :P
I went to the Wisp Saturday to watch a boardercross race. Their jumps were tiny. The doubles were maybe two feet high and ten feet apart. The berms were maybe four feet high and the whole course was ridiculously short. They actually had it set up on a green (Logger's Way). Oddly enough, everyone from 5-6 year olds to 20+ was doing the same course.
Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.
