Detroit’s Hart Plaza is turning into a snowboarding playground for Red Bull’s Heavy Metal event

Detroit – Forty of the best street snowboarders jumped, flipped and slid over bars and walls at Saturday’s Red Bull Heavy Metal event at Hart Plaza.

Athletes traveled from across the country and even internationally to compete in Detroit.

Tara Capilla is from New Jersey and has been snowboarding the streets and parks of New York City. Heavy Metal was the first street competition he participated in after taking up the sport two years ago.

The 21-year-old snowboarder said: “The rush it gives you – like when you hit a trick in the street, it feels so sick.” “The bottom road is definitely…definitely the gentlest. I try to work as hard as I can there.”

The competition was divided into three zones, each with a format that emphasized different snowboarding tricks.
