Bell Garden Skate Park will play host to Red Bull 7 City Hustle, the ultimate cross-town skateboarding showdown. The event will pit skaters from seven surrounding East Los Angeles areas against each other in an epic skate contest. Each area or city represented has its own local skate park, and a select few skaters from each will travel to Bell Gardens to prove they (and their city) are the best. The seven cities fighting for supremacy in this all-day, all-out skate battle include: Compton, Montebello, Hawaiian Gardens, Bell Gardens, Lynwood, Downey and Huntington Park.

Each of the participating cities will have a team of nine, split into three different age brackets. Of the nine, three riders must be aged 7-10, three must be ages 11-14 and three must be ages 15-17. This will be a new competition format for the event, where skaters are judged as a team, rather than as individuals. The judges will pick team winners for the following categories:
- Team Prize – the team that as a whole showcases the best technical skill and team unity during the 7-minute team skate session.
- Features Prize – During a special “features” session, each of the nine skaters must focus on one feature (kidney pool, handrail, etc.). The winning team will show the most creative and successful tricks on each feature. They will receive a brand new street feature for their home skatepark in designed by a Red Bull athlete.
- First Place City (Combo of Both Sections): This team will win the honor of hosting Red Bull 7 City Hustle in 2011.
- MVP (only individual award) – The top points skater will win automatic entry into Red Bull Manny Mania Am contest in Orange County in June 2010
