The Stoneridge Skate Park based in the Stoneridge Centre, Greenstone Park, Johannesburg will be specifically reopened for the BMX Park Freestyle tournament and will see invited riders from around South Africa to compete in the Pro Division, as well as afford up-and-coming riders the opportunity to compete in the Amateur Division.
