Due to circumstances beyond our control the X in the City event has now been postponed until April 2011.

Obviously I am very disappointed especially after all of the enthusiasm and encouragement received from so many great racers around the world.

We will endeavour to make this event bigger and better when it takes place next year.

Spiked X in the City

Spiked X in the City is happening at the weather proof ExCel centre in the heart of London’s docklands over half term from 22-24 October 2010. There is easy access to the venue - with three on site DLR (Docklands Light Railway) stations, easy access to London Underground (Jubilee Line – two stops away on the DLR from Canning Town for ExCel west entrance), parking for 3,700 cars and London City International Airport just 5 minutes away. There are also a variety of nearby hotels see: http://www.milesfaster.co.uk/postcodes/excel-hotels.htm for more information.
Open from 10am to 6pm each day Spiked X in the City (XTC) gives you the chance to take part in Europe’s biggest and most interactive urban action sports event ever.
With 8 Zones covering Land, Water and Snow, Spiked X in the City has everything you need for the most awesome weekend in London.
With a huge vert ramp, half pipe, massive indoor slalom course, the world’s best ever Parkour course, the world’s biggest indoor Wake Park, a massive Big Air Snow Jump, Freestyle course, art of combat zone, cage cricket, full size roller derby rink, base camp adventurers’ paradise, showcasing talent music stage, EA sports hub and huge chill out zone, this is the best ever weather proof urban action sports collective seen for a very long time!
Combined with elite level competitions, grass roots comps, have a go sessions and open jams Spiked X in the City will have something for all fans of urban and action sports whatever level from rookie to elite to wanting to chill out and watch the best in action entertainment, skill and experience extreme adrenaline rush.
Check out the Zones page on the main X in the City website (http://www.xinthecity.co.uk/) for details on all the fantastic activities on land, water and snow, all within ExCel, London. This event will showcase the best world class athletes and emerging talent.
The organisers have also signed a deal with Sky Sports who will be presenting 8 half hour broadcasts from the show – these will also be syndicated and broadcast across the World.

The UKSSA have been invited along to take part and hold exhibition races and generally promote slalom racing to the public. We will be running novice sessions each day with a competition for the fastest novice through the course each day winning a bag of assorted skate related schwag.

We will be holding a series of X in the City World Indoor Challenge Trophy races each day over the weekend. We will decide on the format once we have gauged the number of entries from other countries.
We intend to put on approximately 4 hours of head to head racing and 4 hours of novice “have a go/meet the racers” sessions each day. A daily timetable will be available once we have a better idea of numbers.

If you wish to take part in this event please sign up here by 10th September 2010.
Please note: There may be a nominal charge of just £10 per entrant to cover expenses but this will be confirmed shortly.

I have been asked by the organisers to provide a racer profile for each rider along with a photograph – these will be used in promotional information and also by the race commentator at the event so please write a short paragraph about yourself, listing any achievements or results, sponsors etc. - try to keep them concise. Please send your finished profiles to me at: rob.ashby626@btinternet.com as soon as possible.

This is one event in the UK that cannot be rained off - so what are you waiting for?
