BMX : The superstar disciplines
FISE offer a competition that haven’t to be missed. The most spectacular, the best athletes come from around the word like Daniel Dhers, Mark Webb, Logan Martin ….and will be here to explode the clapometer.
ROLLER : The artistic one
On the same path as the BMX, the riders will do a lot of tricks, slides transfers and rotation. This Discipline is also very spectacular.
SKATEBOARD : The source
This sport comes from California, it was created by surfers as a transport way. And finally in the 80’ it begins to be a way of life. Today, it’s the most generalize sport, we found it everywhere, in fashion, art, lifestyle and it becomes a real philosophy.
MOUNTAINBIKE : Earth and adrenalin
This discipline will be once again present on a sloping path. The slope style is a path on which you will find the same obstacle as the one in the mountain. This competition offers a breathtaking show by both figures and the large structures. We want to export an outdoor sport in the city center, you will discover it soon in the neighbourhood of Tienu.
This sport is very trendy lately. It’s a mix between snowboard, water ski and surf. Thanks to the system of cable, the wakeboarders can come to the city center to share their passion with us. The figures and the jump are generally very spectacular.
3- Who can attend this event?
The event is for everybody, but I could say is more for family and young people (15 -25)
4- Why did you choose Chengdu? Are there big communities in this city?
Chengdu is the Chinese twin town since 32 years with the city of Montpellier in France which is the birth place of FISE. Then it was logical that we continue the history with Chengdu.
