Dear friends of Longboarding!
For this year’s long distance competition we decided to keep it real and simple, or “preussisch locker” as we say in Berlin! Longboard events are still charming FunFamilyHappenings. You still get the opportunity to compete with the scene’s best drivers, which isn’t going to stay that way forever. Races and drivers are becoming more and more professionalized and athleticly advanced. In the downhill circus for instance you can hardly compete unless you are very focused and train very hard. This is most likely what will happen to Long Distance Skateboarding one day!
Track including levels of track, catering and relay stops.
So we are enormously proud and happy to being able to bring together all kinds of Longboarding fans, even from quite different levels! But all those of you who aren’t really used to ride longer tracks please keep in mind, that you should practice riding before the race. The track is not that easy to ride, even when you go in relay teams. There a downhill parts in every section and the upward parts aren’t an easy ride, too! And to those who plan to go all 50 km, be aware that the track is a tough one if you go all the way!
The catering stops will be placed shortly before crossing roads so everyone is carefully watching out for cars etc. Please do not only rely on the guards and advisers but make sure you stop at crossing roads and watch out for bikers, inliners and other people on the track!
