Some 60 bicycle acrobats, including visitors from France and Panamá, are expected to show their stuff in Nicoya Sunday at the BMX War Jam.

The event is being sponsored by the municipality and the Comité Cantonal de la Persona Joven de Nicoya to raise funds to build a skate park.

Young bike experts will pay 5,000 colons, about $10 to enter the competition, but admission for spectators is free. It will be at the Polideportivo de Nicoya.

Mayor Marco Jiménez said that the skate park will be built in Barrio Guadalupe in Nicoya. The project will cost 40 million colons about $80,000. The skate park will have funds from the government’s Instituto Mixto de Ayuda Social.

The bike event is in its fourth year. Registration can be done electronically at or by calling 8317-4846
