The course will basically be made of 3 main elements, take off ramps, landing structures and dirt.
The will be 6 different and unique take off ramps built with cutting edge technology… the riders will be able to perform the most difficult and rare tricks.
Landing ramps will be built using layher structure, wood and Ipe Beams, specially bent in order to obtain the right angles that the riders need for a safe landing.
Once the course is built, we will add 50 trucks of dirt that the machines will shape in order to turn the arena into a real course.
State-of-the-art technology for lights, sound and giant TV screens
Lights and sound set-up for the event will be similar to the ones used for a macro concert . Cutting edge Led projectors will be used, same system as the one used at the Super Bowl final or Eurovision this year. The sound will be based on a 360º coverage thanks to the use of line array systems which will produce high volume and top sound quality in the whole arena.
There will be an OB van recording in HD and 11 different cameras, including 2 mini cameras and one polecam. Fans will therefore be able to watch Slow motion tricks that will be shown on the big screens set up inside the arena.
