The Reece Wallace Invitational is back this summer and open to spectators!

This August 1-3, Reece is hosting the 2nd annual 'RW Invitational' in his backyard in Nanaimo, British Columbia. The event features 30 of the top men & women free riders for three days of competing, filming and jamming around Nanaimo. This year will also be a platform for select up & coming riders to showcase their skills with several wildcard entries.

bigquotesI'm excited to bring a free ride event back to Vancouver Island. My motivation for this year has to been to create a community event which brings together some of the world's best riders to showcase their talent to inspire the next generation of free riders. Watching events like this as a kid got me into riding and I wouldn't be where I am today without them! - Reece
