Holeshot BMX & Skate was put together by UK BMX Race and Freestyle Champion Andy Ruffell in 1984. The event was a forerunner to the modern X Games. BMXers and skaters from the UK and USA took part in a wild competition on ramps and flatland with the judges using the crowd noise as part of the judging process. It was mayhem most of the time with the crowd invading the arena and the world's best riders and skaters riding the walls!
