Rumble in the Concrete Jungle at USNWC
It's out with the boats and in with the bikes for the USNWC's annual Rumble in the Concrete Jungle. The whitewater channel needs a good scrub, so while it's water-free they host an epic cycling race.
"Out with the boats and in with the bikes. The fourth annual Rumble in the Concrete Jungle kicks off the 2017 Whitewater Race Series, as bikes of all shapes and sizes take to the world's largest manmade whitewater river for this one of a kind cycling event.
The Downhill Race will be a time trial from the top of the Competition Channel to the bottom. The course will be designed to maximize the full potential of the banked whitewater channels. While the elevation drop is minimal, the banked channel walls, wooden structures, jumps, and various other obstacles make for a unique and technical course unlike any other. Each participant will be given two timed runs; the best time being used for scoring. The participant with the fastest time will be named the winner in various bike divisions.
The Slopestyle Competition is a chance to boost the jumps, huck the gnar, and generally get as rad as possible. Course markings will be removed and participants will be given free reign to interpret the channel and create the gnarliest line they can imagine from top to bottom. A panel of judges will determine the winner based on style, creativity, and skill.
In the case of inclement weather, we will move the entire event to Sunday, January 8. A decision will be made by Friday at 12pm." –USNWC
