UK Riders at the Snickers Bowl announced

Snickers are launching their UK Friday event in accordance with the Snickers Bowl comp at the Download Festival this year. Basically Friday June 9th will be the day UK heads get to rep to their best abilities on the mammoth bowl with a chance to qualify for the weekend comp alongside international legends like Rune Glifberg, Omar Hassan or Jeurgen Horwarth.

It’s only right that is such an event is going down in your backyard, you should get to ride it! Plus, when you see the Olympic swimming pool sized (yet twice the depth!) ramp, you’ll know why UK Friday is such a great opportunity.

Practice will start on Thursday 8th June, and if riders are lucky enough to place in the top 3 on Friday, they go through to the main World Cup Event.
