Hosted annually by Oatway Productions
The ‘Golden Stompdown’ is a skateboard, mountain bike, BMX and scooter competition for all skill levels and all ages of riders. The event is hosted by Oatway Production and The Town of Golden. It is held on the second Saturday of September at The Golden Freeride Park located across from the College of the Rockies in Golden, BC. The registration tables open at noon on the day of event at the Golden Freeride Park. The competition starts at around 2pm and will run anywhere from 6pm to 7pm depending on the turn out. Every competitor in each category will get a 1 minute run on the park to themselves to throw down some awesome talent. Top competitors will get a second run. There is also time trials for the pump track, a flat land game of S.K.A.T.E. and a piggy back your friend race for anyone who wants to join. On top of that, there is live music, warm food, cold drinks, T-shirts for sale and lots of random fun events on the side lines as well as tons of great prizes to give away. Oh and don't forget about Ride The Vibe's live trials bike performances. We hope to see you all there.
The 8th Annual Golden Stompdown
An Another year under the belt for this event.
The weather couldn't have been nicer, with the 2 week build up of crappy, cold, rainy weather leading up to the event. We were surprised with an ever so perfect bluebird summer day.
This year's event was held on Saturday, September 13th, 2014. The registration tables opened at noon and by 2pm, the competition was underway. "This year we tried to mix it up a bit added a 30+ category, set up a piggy back race and had 3 female competitors in which we also made a new category" says Jessie, "I was very stoked on the turn out and the amount of community support this event is starting to get". There was also a ton of activities going on at the pump track as well, time trials, most laps in a designated time, consistent trial riding, etc. During the event we also had a 'Piggy Back Your Friend Race' open to whom ever wanted to piggy back a smaller human through an Oatway Productions built obstacle coarse as fast as they can to try and achieve the fastest time. Then at the end of the day, we had our annual closing down game of flat land S.K.A.T.E. On top of that, we had live music courtesy of DJ Wackutt and Bass Workshop, an awesome BBQ rolling all day thanks to Rico, Moe and the Island Restaurant. By selling t-shirts and food, we were able to raise over 900 dollars to go towards next year's event.
