MAY • OKC Whitewater Festival

May 18-20
RIVERSPORT Rapids, Oklahoma City

OKC’s second annual Whitewater Festival will take place May 18-20 with a weekend of extreme racing and family fun. You’ll never find a better weekend to watch – or get in on the action!

Two new events will be featured at this year’s festival – “BoaterX” extreme downriver kayaking competition and the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship US Qualifier!

BoaterX (boatercross) has whitewater kayakers launching off the bridge at the east end of RIVERSPORT Rapids and racing side-by-side through the channels, navigating gates, executing combat rolls and elbowing their way to victory. It’s a full contact sport, and you’ll be just feet away watching the action! [video]

You’ll also be just steps away from the  exciting cycling action during the  Red Bull Pump Track World Championship US Qualifier on Saturday, May 19. The new racing series is taking pump track racing to a new level and bringing a fresh face to bike racing from New Zealand to the USA, and France to Japan. Velosolutions, globally recognized for their leading pump track and bike park construction, has teamed up with Red Bull to launch the exciting series which will culminate with the grand final to be held in September in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.
