ELEVATION5, the sixth installment of the infamous Elevation flatland event series, will be taking place in Houston,Texas on Saturday, October 14, 2006.Set in an old 1920’s abandoned warehouse space in the downtown district of Houston, this event boasts to be one of the most interesting flatland events in the U.S. this year. The building, which provides about 12,000 sq/ft of riding space and 30 foot ceilings, is just one of the unique features of this long awaited event. The most interesting part of this year’s Elevation is that the main event of the day is an expert only comp with a cash purse of up to $2500.00. Where most flatland events promote a pro comp as the main attraction, this year the promoters of E5 felt it necessary to give props to the group of riders that help keep flatland alive with little or no reward, the AMs and Experts.
This all day event will be a full jam for all riders with Am and Expert comps, and possibly a full on battle of attending pros somewhere towards the end of the day (more details about that on the site). Live music all day by DJ Ill-Set (myspace.com/ill_set), up to a $2500 purse for experts, B-Boy Battle and demo by the Vicious Germz, and more. Get all of the details online at elevation5.com or go add E5 as a friend on MySpace at myspace.com/dunamisdesigns. Elevate yourself on October 14th.
