Discipline: Downhill Skateboarding

Slalom - Half Shell mandatory, gloves & pads recommended.
Freeride - Half Shell & Slide Gloves mandatory, pads recommended.
Downhill Racing - Full Face & Slide Gloves mandatory, pads recommended.

What's a freeride you ask?
It's basically just skating down the hill for fun, no pressure to race or anything.
Bomb it, carve it, or push yourself against your friends, no worries basically.
You can also start riding the hill from a bit further down if you're just getting to grips with speed.
Freeriding will take place throughout both days of the event, even when the Race is on you can still Freeride the hill in between racing heats.

Racing will take part on Sunday (time to be confirmed) & will consist of 3 rounds.
Each round will have the same amount of groups (aka Heats) competing in them, each heat's riders will be randomly generated, so you all get to as much opportunity to gather points.
At the end of the 3 rounds, points per rider will be added up, if in the top bracket the are ties for positions, a final heat of up to 8 people will be run.
Prizes will be provided for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in the following categories:
