NASS 2019 Reveals First Wave of Invited Athletes

NASS once again is going to be home to world class skate & BMX talent this summer with athletes gathering from around the globe! Witness the mayhem as our athletes compete for a stake in our epic £45,000 prize purse! Check out whose coming in 2019.

The first wave of invited athletes (in alphabetical order) includes:

Alex Donnachie (GBR)

X Games BMX gold medallist and touted as one of the most progressive street riders in the game right now, Alex’s calm and quiet demeanour gives way to explosive riding on the daily. More often than not you can 15 seconds of absolutely ridiculous bike control on Alex’s Instagram. And, when Alex puts in work for a project, it’s literally next level! 


Alex Hallford (GBR)

Alex has spent most of his early years shredding with some of the most progressive skaters in the UK scene. He is a crowd pleaser and his constant energy, enthusiasm and positivity both on and off the board is infectious. This, and his massive bag of tricks, has made him a popular rider at NASS and around Europe over recent years.


Bruno Hoffmann (GER)

Bruno has impressed the judges at Simple Session several times, including second place in 2018. He's also bagged second in the German Open in 2009, a first place at the Red Bull Trick or Treat in 2010, third place in the Dew Tour in 2012 and an impressive second place in the X Games in 2013.


Dan Lacey (GBR)

Dan has been riding street for almost two decades since the age of 12. Dan’s relentless determination to push the boundaries of Street riding was rewarded with his first Street appearance at X Games 2010. Other highlights include a victory in the Street final at the 2013 Dew Tour Beach Championships – among a number of insanely technical tricks that he landed at the event was a backward grind to over toothpick down the rail, which also won him the Best Trick award.


Jack Clark (GBR)

A regular NASS top 6 BMX Park finalist in recent years, expect to see Jack representing BMX Team GB at all the major UCI BMX contests leading up to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 where Jack has a shown promise in taking home the Gold medal at the first ever Freestyle BMX Olympic competition.


Jordan Sharkey (GBR)

Jordan has often found himself in the top 10 at NASS in the Skate invitational Street competitions in recent years. With his stylish riding, Jordan’s results demonstrate his unparalleled consistency.


Justin Dowell (USA)

Team USA rider 18-year-old Justin Dowell recently became BMX Freestyle World Champion at the UCI World Cup. Justin burst onto the scene at last year’s NASS winning the BMX Park Invitational competition.


Ke'chaud Johnson (USA)

Returning NASS 2018 Skate Invitational Street Champion, Ke’Chaud recently turned pro in 2018 with Darkstar Skateboards in what was a huge year for the skater. His likeable demeanour, high energy and fun-loving attitude have made him popular among all skaters.
