GORE-TEX® Be a Rockstar is a stepping-stone for enthusiastic amateurs aged 16 and over, who would like to compete once with the world’s best bouldering athletes, as the winners of the jam session receive a wildcard for the adidas ROCKSTARS invitational competition.
In addition, the top three men and women of the amateur comp spend one day in the limelight in their very own final: a “Build your Boulder” contest for which they team up with a pro athlete.
A total of 130 athletes (men and women) are permitted to the GORE-TEX® Be a Rockstar contest on Friday, 21 September 2018. They climb within a given time frame 8 different boulder problems in a random order.
On the following day, the top 3 men and women of the jam session compete in the “Build your Boulder” final. Here the finalists form a team of two with one of the top athletes drawn by lot. As a team they have one hour to set their own route. In order to claim victory the finalists need creativity, speed, and self-evaluation, because only by topping their own bouldering problem they have a chance to win. If the athletes don’t climb their own route, their final score will be reduced.
Each finalist must climb all three self-built problems as well as a fourth boulder set by the route setters. The competitor who tops the most boulders by the end of the evening claims the GORE-TEX® Be a Rockstar champion title and will be on the invitation list for adidas ROCKSTARS in the following year.
The entry package is EUR 20,- an includes: Entry fee, adidas event t-shirt, dinner voucher for Palm Beach restaurant (Friday), free drinks during competition, access to adidas Athlete Lounge (Friday).
The registration opens in April 2018.
