REGISTER HERE:  http://stategamesofmichigan.com/GRDH   Bustin Boards is a proud supporter of skateboard events all around the world.  We’re particularly excited about a new event this summer, State Games of Michigan – Grand Rapids Urban Downhill Skateboarding.  Bustin has been working with the local governments of Grand Rapids, Michigan in partnership with the State funded Games of Michigan –  a multi-sport Olympic style program that offers 41 sporting events over a 3-day weekend.  This is the 5th year of the State Games in Michigan,  which includes a fully sanctioned Downhill Skateboarding event.  The GRDH course is a short, urban style track boasting left and right off-camber 90 degree corners – perfect to grip and rip.

Skateboarding is illegal downtown Grand Rapids, posing a real problem for urban commuters living downtown and students who commute to class./work.  This is the first time Lyon, Ransom & Fountain Streets will be closed to protect State Games participants involved in the Urban Downhill event and the first time skateboarders are allowed on the hill.  We hope the event will raise awareness that skateboarding is a viable form of transportation that needs a green-commuter infrastructure, curbed bike lanes separated from the roadway.

EVENT:  June 21  4-8pm – GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN
