Endless Bike Co. and the city of Asheville, NC will be presenting the third annual “Mountain Sports Festival” mountain bike street contest this May 8th.

“Urban Decay” will build on the success of the previous two years’ contests by upping the ante to what is likely the highest concentration of real street riding in a mountain bike contest ever.

‘02’s “Double Down” event featured a duel slalom race followed by a three stage street event which included box jumps, a wrecked car, and a large downhill stair gap zone. NC locals Joe Haley, Chris Herndon, Joe Moore, and Marshall Hance took podium.

‘03’s “Urban Sprawl” event began with a timed run on a constructed street course. The street results seeded the entrants for a tech street-slalom event. The winner of last years Pro class was Aaron Chase who went away with several hundred dollars while the first place amateur Zak Amaral won a brand new Endless Lifetime frame.

This year’s judged event will be a 4 minute solo run from top to bottom on what is guaranteed to be the sickest street course ever witnessed in the history of Mountain Bike street contests (which date back to ‘02’s Double Down contest). Features will include huge wall rides (some curved), multiple big stair gaps, picnic tables, scattered kicker ramps, several unique street offerings as well as the standard array of quarter and spine ramps.

This years event will offer cash prizes for the Pro/Expert class as well as an Endless Bike Co. Lifetime frame for the winner of the amateur class and various other product for other ranking entrants.

50 riders total will be allowed to enter, all on a first come first serve basis.
The entry form and all pertinent information is located at http://www.endlessbikes.com/urban_decay_reg.doc

every year i hear this question. no you cannot ride the course unless you are registered. sorry but there are two very solid reasons. 1. insurance, sorry that is my least favorite one. 2. the practice format isnt really going to allow it. registration day of is 20 bones. spit it out and you get free beer at the party and get to compete. i mean who is gonna bitch about that. also while im here we have alot of pros coming. for those of you that care about this kind of stuff......aaron, kyle, jeff, anson, evil guys, sinister, kirt, maybe some o' the boys from colorado and from the north west, maybe even a few cannnuuuckss. eh. how you like that. anyway this is a call for help for local monkeys too. call me to help us move ramps on thursday night and help with set up friday morning.....if you are in town you know my digits or how to get'm so later all.

Hey! I'm the guy that shot (and helped to edit) the comp last year for Match Videozine. I'm planning on coming down again this year. But I'm kind of broke and do not wish to be subjected to a DH Productions crew beatdowns/expensive hotels/drama. So yeah, I need a place to stay. [the further away from drunk Lenosky the better ;) ] Can anybody in the area hook me and a couple of street riders up with a couch or something?

Come on, hook a brother up. Match Videozine makes negative $ and it's the end of the semester and I'm broke.

If you've got something to sleep on, we've got insane floor space and are located downtown west asheville, just 2 miles from the event.
I may try to get ahold of some more couches by the event to accomodate out of towners.
Regardless, don't worry about a place to stay.

I wish I could make it this year, but I am busy recovering from this surgery so no $$ to spend on travel. I want someone to take some shots for me to look at though. I really wish I could make it.

Still don't know, but I don't think so. We'd have to lose (soccer) tonight, which is unlikely but you never know. I know i spend so much time on it, but at least we're pretty good (15th in the nation)

I guess I'll have to add it to the list of cool **** that i've missed becuase of soccer. (your dj's, last years urban sprawl, lots of shuttling, Peewee's, planet zod, charlotte race last year)

Fock that list is waaay too long. Only one more week
