TAGAYTAY CITY, Philippines – Construction of the 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games skateboarding and BMX cycling venues looked set for a photo-finish in Cavite, where Filipino Asian Games champions Margielyn Didal and Daniel Caluag aim to flash their winning moves.
Tagaytay City boasts a brand new Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI)-regulated BMX track and a skate park for the street and park events will be up, but the extreme sports complex still awaits some finishing touches.
Rappler visited the site on Sunday, November 24, just over a week before the skateboarding competition kicks off on Tuesday, December 3, and the BMX events on December 9.
According to Skateboarding and Roller Sports Association of the Philippines president Monty Mendigoria, the skateboarding venues are expected to be fully completed by Wednesday, November 27.
