April 7th & 8th 2018 – Over the weekend the South Fontana Skatepark at Jack Bulik Park hosted the 4th Annual WCMX & Adaptive Skate World Championships. The event was produced in collaboration with Action Park Alliance, SoCal WCMX, the Adaptive Skate Kollective, Spohn Ranch Skateparks, the City of Fontana & Cal Poly Pomona Adapted PE with sponsored support from the Triumph Foundation, the Sheckler Foundation, Rhythm Skateshop, the Perry Family Foundation, Skate One, Mitchell & Ness, Air Pro, Spinergy Wheels & Colours In Motion. Athletes from around the world ventured to Fontana, California to compete amongst the latest and greatest of WCMX & Adaptive Skaters.
For those unfamiliar with the rapid growing sport – WCMX stands for Wheel Chair Moto Cross, a term derived from “Chair Skating” in which participants utilize custom fabricated wheelchairs to perform technical maneuvers at skateparks similar to those on BMX bikes & skateboards. Spectators present watched in awe as competitors pushed the limits of their respective sports over the course of the weekend, performing new tricks not done prior in any other contests. As most contests are, participants were split into multiple categories based on age & skill level. These divisions broke up riders between Division 3 (Beginner 16 & under) Division 2 (Intermediate 16 & Under) Division 1 (16 & Up) Adaptive Skate (Non-Wheelchair athletes) Woman’s & WCMX Open.
