About Skatercross Skateboard Racing

Skatercross Skateboard Racing is a property of Skatercross Inc., founded in 2015 by 23-time X Games medalist Andy Macdonald and Chris Conway. Skatercross Skateboard Racing is a groundbreaking discipline that blends features of motocross, BMX and snowboarding with various types of skateboarding. Racers go up against each other on a track littered with jumps, bumps and corners, and the first skater across the finish line wins. Skatercross Skateboard Racing will make its official debut at Clash at Clairemont on Saturday, June 25. Invited skaters include Pedro Barros, Curren Caples, Greyson Fletcher, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Chris Russell, Tom Schaar, Ryan Sheckler, Alex Sorgente and Ishod Wair, among many others.
