Mountainboard Boardercross World Championship | Serbia 2016

Mountainboard Boardercross World Championship | Serbia 2016

posted in: Xperience | 1

I first encountered mountainboarding in Snowmass, as an activity offered by Snowmass Kids’ Camp. Unfortunately, once you’re past the age 15, it doesn’t seem like there’s anyone enjoying this sport on our mountains. That’s why it was even more interesting for me to learn that the World Championship in mountainboarding happens every year in my home country – Serbia, where I’m quite sure most of the population has never heard of this sport!

Out of the three days of the event, I only went on the day of qualifying races. The trail is 700 meters long, and I’ve heard from the competitors that it’s quite steep!

Check out some pics I got to snap during the event –

    Mountainboards for the competition must not use brakes, an engine or any stuff like that. The maximum wheel size is 8 inch.
