    A new BMX competition, Red Bull Wooden Rhythm makes BMX trail riding a team sport by synchronizing riders in their choreographed train! Some of the region’s best trail crews will be showcasing their choreographed BMX trains in The Wheel Mill’s Woods Jump Room at Red Bull Wooden Rhythm. Judged by local Pennsylvania BMX trail legends Brandan Pundai, Jason Steig, and Todd Walkowiak, the crew’s trains with the highest scores judged on choreography, difficulty, and execution will earn them a $1,000 cash prize.

    Red Bull Wooden Rhythm will take place on Saturday, December 6th. Doors open to the public at 6:00pm and the Main Event begins at 7:00pm. This event is free to the public.
