In the week leading up to Halloween, Rochester, NY residents will have to look out for more than ghouls and goblins in the streets. On October 25th, more than 30 of the best BMX riders in the country will gather at the Rochester Main Street Armory for a contest that will be full of tricks, and for the best riders, some much deserved treats.
Red Bull Trick or Treat will feature Halloween themed obstacles, like a grave stone wall ride gap and a massive coffin shaped wedge. Taking place inside the historic Rochester Main Street Armory (next door to the haunted House of Pain), the event is free for all ages. For those who are not easily spooked, they will get to see some of the biggest names in BMX, including recent X Games BMX Street gold medalist Garrett Reynolds, 2006 X Games Park gold medalist Scotty Cranmer, Edwin DeLaRosa, Corey Martinez, Chris Doyle, Aaron Ross, Chase Hawk, Brian Kachinsky and Sean Sexton. These riders will battle it out for $4,000 in prize money against Rochester locals like Jay Roe, Tony Hamlin, Tom Dillon and Steve Debusk. The jam session format will feature heats of riders throwing down runs until it is whittled down to the best 10 for a final jam that will take guts, skills and some good luck from the dark side to win.
The event will also feature an after party at the Armory. In partnership with Kink Bikes, there will be a world premiere of their new team video Safety First and performances by The Isotopes and DJ Tim Tones. Costumes are encouraged for both spectators and riders.
