Victorias first legal, closed road slalom/dh race event ' 2012 Yarra Ranges Downhill Festival'. It's been a long time coming and still got some work to do, but will be a chance for us to show the locals that DH skaters are not 'playing russian roulette with cars' (thanks tracy) and are above all, awesome to watch. Stoked to have WEFUNK skateboards, Edge Boardshop Edge Boardshop, Loose Threads and Monster Energy on board to allow us to throw some swag around for competitors. DH Racing, Slalom, Music, Barbecue all in one jam packed day of fun. If you call yourself a long boarder and live in Melbourne, you better be there.

Yep, longboarder check, live in Melbourne check. I'll be there as long as it's not some dumb arse tight slalom masquerading as hybrid Evil or Very Mad. Make it big GS so the younguns on longboards will give it a go like the time we had the race upstairs at Monash.

P.S. Russian Roulette is only one skateboard vs six cars; fuckin piece of piss.

Boomer,
It is a busy road so we can't set a course til it is closed on the day.
So get there early and you can help set it!
it will be fast enough, without start ramps.

Sorry I was a bit strident there. It was Saturday night on the piss Embarassed .

More sensibly speaking I think that a bigger open course with perhaps some stingers will be negotiable by some of the young downhiller and freeride guys as well as some older guys that are decent riders but not particularly turned on by tight slalom e.g. Ching, Karl, Jos

I'd be happy to help out with course setting and testing Wink

Spoke with Matty.
Downhill is the draw-card event and must have priority, but assuming they can get all the heats done quickly and safely, they will be up for setting a GS course on the main track, and will try to get as many runs as they can get in before the end of the day. They will also want to do some free ride and sliding.
Don't get too excited, because the condition of the road and the progress of racing will always dictate what we can do.
To make it a full day, they are going to need lots of help and co-operation from everyone, and this event will be something that we will all want to invest our time in so we can all make it a big success for the future.
