What distinguishes the Shakedown and contributes to its success is first and foremost its competition format, a laid-back and festive environment where the constraints on the athletes are minimal.
The Shakedown is an invitational contest only for professional athletes. A total of 40 pros will be invited. The list of confirmed athletes will be updated until the day of the event.
