Winter Splinter THIS SUNDAY!


Feb 12, 2008
Atlanta, GA
Hey fellow Freeriders (aka park riders and spectators)! The weekend of the Winter Splinter is finally upon us!!

As you may have seen on Pinkbike.com, we are bringing back the Winter Splinter for 2008. It is a skate park competition specifically for mountain bike riders. That means some sick riding on 24 and 26" wheels only! It's going down at the Factory Skate Park in Newnan GA, about 30 minutes south of Atlanta.

If you want to come ride, there are 3 classes; amatuer, expert, and pro. There are great prizes for all classes (check out the sponsor list on the flier!).


Practice starts at 10 am on Sunday the 24th of February, and the comp starts at 12 noon. We expect the competition to be over around 5pm.

For those of you who just want to come see some sick riders, there will be many pros from across the country, along with some very talented local riders. The skate park will be charging $5 a head for spectators to re-coup the maintenance costs of keeping the park close to us only for the whole day.

Also for added entertainment, Red Bull is sending their girls over to hand out some great drinks, and we think the Newnan Hooters girls will come over the help hand out the prizes!

So come out, bring your friends and family, and have a great time with us. There will be BBQ, music, and bikes bikes bikes!
