Greetings extreme sports fans!
Saturday July the 23rd was the date of the third Extreme
Sports competition in Burgess Hill.
This years event was named Skate Jam, replacing
the name Skatefest which was used for the previous
There were categories for Rollerbladers, Skateboarders
and BMX riders of different age groups.
Unlike last year where each competitor has 90 seconds
on the course alone, competitors were sent out in
groups of 3 and 4 and had 3 and a half minutes to
do their thing.
And with the skate park hosting it's first official
competition since its big expansion, this was a good
move to keep the crowd interested.
This years panel of judges were actually made up of
people who know a thing or two about Extreme Sports,
including the legendary Dave White, the man who is
famous for falling on his head last year!
Once again, there was a large turnout of people of
all ages to support the event, as Burgess Hill's finest
battled it out to become champion of there respective
Burgess Hill Uncovered were on hand to snap the best
of the action and hired McCarthy TV to shoot video
footage (coming soon!)
