PARK | DIRT | VERT | FLAT | RESULTS | VIDEO
NASS has always been a fixed star on the global BMX contest circuit. Last year saw NASS host the iBMXff BMX World Championships as it returned to the UK for the first time in nearly 30 years. It has now been announced that the iBMXff has sanctioned NASS to host the leading event for a second year running. This year’s World Championships promise to be even bigger and badder! NASS will host Professional and Amateur contests across Park, Vert, Flatland and Dirt disciplines with athletes from across the globe descending on the Festival for the chance to become a world champion and win a slice of the combined $50,000 prize purse.
Europe’s leading skate park builders Four One Four Skateparks will design the Pro Park and given last year’s course; with its monster drop ins, open loops and huge transitions, 2017’s design ought to be even more epic and will certainly push the riders to their limits.
Mat Hoffman, Chairman of the iBMXFF said: “I was there in 1988 and it was amazing to be there again last year. To say we are stoked to be coming back again in 2017 would be an understatement. If last year is anything to go by we will certainly be high-fiving the progression and rocking even more love for BMX! We are going to see the best riding, inspired by the best music. This is THE event to plan your year around. See you there!”
Women: The level of women's BMX progression is stronger than ever. We are stoked to be welcoming back in 2017 the Women's Open Park competition.
Amateur: Every year the amateurs set out to prove themselves as worthy of attention and 2016 was no different. Jak Tones took first place in the Amateur Park competition and then went on to hold his own in the professional heats. Not to be missed, the AM comps still pack some serious punch. Applications now open for all disciplines; Park, Dirt, Vert and Flatland.
Get ready to witness the best riders in the world across Park, Dirt, Vert and Flatland at NASS Festival 2017. Amateur competitions will commence on Friday, Pro qualifiers on Saturday and finals will be held on Sunday 9 July. Full schedule TBA. Applications to compete at NASS 2017 are now open
iBMXff World Championships: PARK
The serious heavyweights, this is the crème-de-la-crème of BMX riding. See the world's best riders, witness the biggest tricks and be prepared to get blown away as the BMX Worlds destroys the NASS Pro Park. Every year Four One Four design and build a park that gets bigger and better, this year will be no different. Last year’s course was insane so we are already excited to see what insanity the 2017 course will bring. What we do know is that 100 riders will battle it down for their share of the $12,000 prize purse. Last year Logan Martin stole the show to take top prize, with runner up places going to Mark Webb and Alex Coleborn.
iBMXff World Championships: DIRT
The very best in outdoor dirt competition. Former World BMX Champion Kye Forte will be again designing and building the 2017 course. With a similar course to last year, we can expect more massive drops, gaps and step ups for the best riders in the world to get down and dirty on. The top 45 riders in the World all competing against one another, the level and intensity of tricks will be off the hook. 2016 saw Nick Bruce take top spot with Leandro Moreira and Daniel Sandoval taking the runner-up places.
iBMXff World Championships: VERT
2017 will see Europe’s biggest Vert ramp return to NASS Festival. We will be welcoming the biggest international names in BMX Vert to come and battle for the title of World Champion. With the level of riders we had last year, the 2017 vert comp will literally be taken to new heights. 2016 witnessed Vince Byron take first place with Simon Tabron and Douglas Oliveria taking the runner-up spots.
iBMXff World Championships: FLATLAND
The iBMXff flatland world championships was one of last year’s highlights and we can’t wait to see it back at NASS in 2017. We will be bringing back Radlands but making it even bigger and better so ensure the perfect stage for the best international flatland BMXers. This really will be the best of BMX flatland right here in the UK. 2016 saw ultimate crowd-pleaser Matthias Dandois take top spot while runner up places went to Takahiro Ikeda and Matt Wilhelm.
PUBLIC STREET PARK
Open for everyone who attends NASS so don’t forget your bike. Jam for as long as you want, free of charge. It doesn’t matter what level you ride at, as long as you know how to have fun. NASS is the best place in the country to ride with like-minded individuals and learn some new skills. Watch the best and then go and ride. Keep your eye out for some of the pro’s and brands kicking about at the public park, they often like to mix it up and have a shred in here. It’s such a fun place to ride, why wouldn’t you?
The NASS Ghetto Park was quite a hit last year and this year will be no different. Paying homage to 80’s street skating contests this park will be a shed load of fun. This means smashed up cars, fly off ramps and jersey barriers to keep the moshers and street heads happy.
JUDGES & MCs
Alongside the comps, we’ll have the NASS stall yard - filled with our favourite shops and brands on hand to talk all things skate and BMX and offer advice if you need it. Check out our array of streetwear and hardware brands and if your board or bike needs some maintenance, you can get whatever you need here!
