TRA BMX Announces the 2019 TRA Double Cross and Dirt Jump Comp
TRA BMX is proud to announce the 2019 TRA Double Cross and Dirt Jump Comp. Presented by S&M/FIT, this pro invitational fundraiser event will take place September 21, 2019 at the TRA compound near Bethlehem Pennsylvania, home of Posh and Catty Trails.
The event will include over 30 top dirt riders competing for a $1,500 Pro Purse and include two contests: the Double Cross – a one-on-one downhill trail race with both 20” and 26” classes, and an open wheel jump comp, all on the same course. With support from Odyssey, Empire, Powers Bike Shop, Dirtsculpt, Axlerad Screen Printing, Action Wheels Bike Shop, Penn Skate Skatepark and STAY STRONG, plus coverage by Our BMX, DIG, Elevated Visuals and more, the event is being held to raise funding and awareness for TRA’s first public dirt park in the USA, to be built in the Lehigh Valley area.
The TRA Double Cross course features massive bowl jumps with nonstop downhill trail action by Dirtsculpt and brings together some of the top riders in BMX and MTB for an epic contest with a backyard vibe and a worldwide reach. The course design is 100% trails, built the way riders across America build for themselves every day.
This private non-profit fundraiser event is intended for riders, trail builders, industry and media, dirt park operators, and families who run BMX tracks to come together and experience the future of BMX competition in a form that can truly grow the sport for riders of all ages across the USA.
The event will be limited to the first 40 riders entered and attendees to the capacity of our 1 acre field parking area. If you are interested in competing or attending, you must contact TRA BMX for an official invite. Per TRA rules, no clipless pedals or carbon fiber bikes are permitted. This is a family-friendly, alcohol free event held in a manner that respects our neighbors and zoning ordinances.
