The course of the second edition of the B&E Invitational surpassed all expectations ! A true playground ; 24 invited riders by Henrik HARLAUT (Sweden) and Phil CASABON (Canada), were unanimous that the infinite, creative possibilities of the course was a work of art. No run could be the same, the riders were experimenting on multiple lines with epic amounts of skill on the transitions, transfers, rails, walls. A unique show, which brought together exceptional riders, which is particularly rare to be united together in a competition.
