Rotorua Air DH presented by Bosch Kidsworx Invitational

For the first time ever, our up-and-coming 10-12 year old shredders will have a chance to test their mettle on Skyline Rotorua Gravity Park’s Mr. Black. This invitational only category to the Rotorua Air DH presented by Bosch will follow the same course as the adults except for two mandatory B-line options. You will get to hit those soon enough, young shredders!

For safety and insurance reasons, we have limited this race to an invitational format with 10 entries in order to select participants that we know can comfortably clear all of the permitted features in Mr. Black with speed in a race format. The limited number of entries in this trial category will help us prioritize safety and asses the skills of this age group for future events.

Riders must have previous experience in a race environment with high-end skills on jumps and steep technical trails. In order for our team to assess your child’s skill-level, applications for this event will require:

  1. Sign-off from a riding coach or instructor acknowledging your child’s riding ability
  2. Two videos of your child completing two separate runs comparable to Mr. Black
  3. Previous race results

The application intake period has now closed. Thank you for all of your applications and your interest in the Rotorua Air DH presented by Bosch Kidsworx Invitational. The Kidsworx team will contact the invited riders the following week.
