Come the last weekend of June, St. Denis street will become a BMX and mountain biking paradise. Mud Rocker presented by Rogers is taking over the Latin Quarter and bringing in mountainous mounds of dirt for ramps and jumps you to ride and jump over, or just watch and enjoy some quality live-action extreme sports.
Mud Rocker runs for two days, June 27th and 28th, and will be free for anyone to check out. St. Denis between Sherbrooke and Ontario will be the official Mud Rocker locale, with events happening throughout the two days.
Friday will be a light affair, with events starting at 6pm. Things get big on Saturday, with tons of competitions and trick contests, with BMX & Mountain biking Montreal champs crowned by the end of the day. If things get rained out, the day's events will be pushed back to Sunday.
Only competitors need to pay for anything Mud Rocker-related, and anyone can register to compete here for only $30. You stand to win $1500 in prize money if you take top BMX or Mountain spots, so there's your incentive. Guest athletes from around the globe will be in attendance, so expect some stiff competition.
Will you be at Mud Rocker?
