FISE Andorra Teaser - BMX - MTB - SKATE - ROLLER

Roller: The roller riders will seduce you with their athletic feats and their spectacular tricks on the spine ramp, installed for the event.

 

  

 

BMX : Coming from the USA in the 70s, BMX, just like many otehr sports, evolved into a few disciplines: park, flat, dirt and ramp. Bringing together power, stamina and explosive tricks, this versatile discipline is one of the most spectaculats. On this stop, you will find the best spine ramp riders in the world, together for a first ever contest (and show!) in Andorra.

 

 

 

Mountain Bike : Mountain biking is on=e of the most spectacular disciplines of the FISE, with an always more challenging course.

 

In 2014, the FISE World Andorra will have the chance of being part of the FMB tour as a gold stop, which is a very prestigious stop of the tour. This competition will attract some of the best slopestyle riders in the world.
