Quashai Final PARIS!


Andy L, Nosedive 3 with the nose up?!

After four amazing stops of the Qashqai Urban Challenge in Newcastle, Milan, Madrid and Cologne, riders will be reconvening after a four week break for the final stop of the series on June 22nd and 23rd in Paris. The world’s best riders will be rested and ready to throw down their best riding in a final attempt to take home the big overall prize money that is waiting for the top five athletes.

La Villette in Paris (Parc de la Villette / Place de la Fontaine au Lion / 211 , avenue Jean Jaures, 75019 Paris) will be the location for the last stop of the 2007 Qashqai series which brought out some of the most amazing riding of the year. The riders have been showing their hardest tricks at each stop of the tour and Paris will be no different.

In fact, Paris will allow the riders to do even more crazy tricks, since the discipline is “Big Air“, which means that we will see a big drops, huge gaps and some of the biggest jumps in any mountain bike contest to date.

In addition to the prize money for the winners of the Paris stop of the Qashqai Urban Challenge, the overall prize money for the top 5 riders of 100,000 Euros will be also given out after the event. The top three riders Paul Basagoitia, Darren Berrecloth and Lance McDermott are very close in the overall standings to the first prize of 50,000 euros, but anything could happen as riders compete for the podium in Paris.

Darren Berrecloth flew into Europe a couple of days early, while Paul Bas is still finalizing his last preparations at home and thinking about who can be the winner: “Everybody is able to win on any given day, it’s just about who’s feeling it that day.“ And what would he do if he is the overall winner at end of the day? “The first thing I would do is take all my buddies out for sushi, and then have a celebration party after.“ It will be an exciting final for sure.
