What’s this all about? Look no further… 2013 No Fear Proving Grounds is a contest series taking place at three awesome parks in Southern California: Esco in Escondido, Houghton in Long Beach, and Mission Valley YMCA in San Diego. These contests are all about giving ams an opportunity to compete against riders their age and riding level, helping get badass riders sponsored, and helping BMX grow. These comps will bring much-needed exposure to unknown shredders, support local riders and parks, and help bring future pros up through the ranks. And they’re going to be a kick-ass time! You can bet there will be more than a few pros and industry guys watching it all go down, too. Trophies, prizes, and freebies will be given out at every stop, and ridebmx.com will be covering each comp. If you’re in SoCal this summer, you need to be there!
