The list of athletes signed up to showcase their incredible talent in the GAS Arena on June 29th – July 2nd reads like an international who’s who of action sports that include legends from the world of Freestyle Motocross, BMX dirt, Trials and Mountain Bike.

Freestyle Motocross is set to stun the huge audiences once again.
From the world of pedal power, Mountain Bike & BMX legends from all over the globe will battle for the coveted prize to be crowned the all-conquering King of GAS set in a jump-filled, double-lane course.
