About the Source BMX Battle of Hastings
The Source BMX Battle Of Hastings is presented by Monster, in association with Etnies and is proudly sponsored by BSD, Cinema, Cult, Federal and United.
The original Battle of Hastings took place in 1066 and this year with the 950 year festivities, we ́re putting Hastings back on the international contest scene with our version of the Battle of Hastings to celebrate the first big BMX contest at the Source Park.
To say we’re excited about this is an understatement; putting on amazing events was our biggest motivation when getting the Source Park opened.
