Battle of Hastings 2017 was a tour de force, that’s for sure. Forty-four amazing riders, one skatepark, one huge crowd. Our man Adam Lievesley came through with this gallery featuring some of the best moments from the weekend.

As Darryl Nau said, it’s hard to put into words how it felt to be in that building at the weekend. The atmosphere was pumped, the riding was wild, the beers kept everyone loose… What more could you ask for?
In our event report video (above), Corey Walsh mentions that a lot of riders were comparing the vibe of Battle of Hastings to that of the legendary Backyard Jams – quite an accolade. Corey obviously wasn’t present at any of the Backyards, but riders like Gary Young and Chris Doyle backing him up mean you know it’s legit.
Marc and Rich Moore have done incredibly well to create such a beast of an event – it’s genuinely a highlight on the BMX calendar. In Hastings, no less. True UK stoke.
