Introducing: Continental Rankings

You asked for it, and we're delivering. From today the IDF will publish downhill rankings for each continent; North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.

The top pros travel the world; now everybody else has a new way to compete.

How does it work?

Each continent's rankings include only:

  • races held on that continent
  • riders from that continent
  • each rider's best 5 results on that continent.

What happens if I'm from one continent, but now live on another continent?

By default you'll belong to the continent associated with the country you marked as your "Nationality" on the IDF Membership form. If you've changed nationality, or have dual-nationality, or have some other situation, please let us know and we'll try and accommodate you.

Why do I have one more/less ranking point than…

Troy Grenier King of the Mountain

The Whistler Longboard Festival threw up all sorts of surprises, but the man from Vancouver they call Troy "Yardwaste" Grenier, had a slick ride from start to finish and took the crown from Alex Hannigan and Brendan Davidson.  

In the women's category, emerging superstar, Emily Pross showed the crowd the wet and wild conditions would not hold her back by taking the trophy and avenging last week's disappointment in commanding fashion from Californian, Caitlin Yong, with Marcela "Chela" Girado, taking third.  

The Juniors category was a re-run of last week's final, with Alex Charleson, making it a double in North America. The speed of the Vancouver local in the wet conditions, was simply too much for Australian Tyron Knight, who took second from Charlie McMillan in third.

In street luge, Frank Williams showed his class by claiming all 3 races to romp into first place, from Darius Escander.…

The "Big Lean" Storms to the Top at Whistler

The water hit the Whistler mountains like a tsunami as the IDF World Cup roadshow rolled into town. Rain wheels were the order of the day as qualification began in almost perfect BC conditions as local competitor Charlie "The Big Lean" Darragh overcame a tough field of elite riders to claim the number 1 spot in tomorrows final of the Landyachtz Whistler World Cup with a qualification time of 1:58.527. He overcame tough competition in brutal conditions from Landyachtz rider Dillon Stephens (1:58.984) who battled all day with Darragh for top spot.

As the track got wetter the competition heated up with Danny Carlson (1:59.621) shooting up the leaderboard late in the day with Riley Harris (1:59.781) hot on his tail. Former Junior WLF Champion and local Flatlander Alex Hannigan showed why he moved off the ranch…

AJ Takes the Win in a Record Breaking Day at Pikes

Californian AJ Haiby took the win at the Pikes Peak World Cup event in Colorado today in record breaking fashion in an almost perfect run down the famous mountain. He posted a track record 2:09:708 run in the final to beat Canadians Riley Harris, Brendan Davidson, and Alex Hannigan in a tightly fought final. 


In a stacked 64 bracket Junior rider Alex Charleson backed up his qualifying time for a win in the consolation final over Micah Green, Dillon Stephens, and fellow Junior Keenan Macartney. Alex also took down Australian Tyron Knight in the Junior final to show some serious form leading into the backend of the World Cup season. In a 6 man Junior final Knox Heslop took third from Greg Gaproski with micro grom Jasper Ohlson taking 5th and Ethan Vinograd in 6th.

In the Womens early favorite Emily Pross took a heavy crash on the push and was eliminated before Rachel Bruskoff marched through the heats herself…

AJ Haiby Scrapes Into Top Spot at Pikes Peak

In some of the tightest qualifying seen for some time AJ Haiby held off fierce competition to take top spot for tomorrows finals with a time of 2:11.428 beating out Micah Green (2:11.440) by a mere 12 thousandths of a second. Canadian junior Keenan Macartney was certainly the surprise of the day taking third in 2:11:724 from Colorado local Zak Maytum (2:11:803). The entire top 16 seemed to re-order every run with riders slashing times with each crack at the famous mountain. Brazilian Max Ballesteros was as high as second but after battling with Zak all day he rounded out the top five 4 thousandths of a second behind Zak in a time of 2:11:807.

Top 10 Opens

  1. 2:11:428 - Andrew Haiby
  2. 2:11.440 - Micah Green
  3. 2:11:724 - Keenan Macartney

The IDF Team Evolves

Kevin Reimer

The people behind the scenes at the IDF are always changing, and now is a good opportunity to publicly thank the people who put in their time and effort.

Kevin Reimer resigned from the IDF Board this spring after serving as Director for 2.5 years. Kevin's busy schedule meant he wasn't able to contribute as much as he wanted, and therefore he decided to step down to allow somebody else to take up a voting seat on the IDF Board. We'd like to thank Kevin for helping establish the IDF, for his 2.5 years of service and for all he and his family continues to do for downhill racing.…

Kozakov 2015 Final Day

The day started with some rain at 9 o'clock, so we waited a bit until the road dried up. We did one warm up run, but it started to drizzle again, leaving the road patchy at some points. We waited until it was dry again and sent the second warm up down.

Again there was some drizzle coming down. For the safety of the riders, the organisation then decided to shorten the track, to make sure we could do a safe race. This took some time, because we had to move the start line down and the finish line up (and thus no more wifi for updates).

When this was done, the sun came out and we started the race on a completely dry track. We started with warm ups for every one to get used to the new track and after that it was on.

Open did their first round, together with classic luge. Since there were only 16 classic riders, it only took 3 rounds, after which Mikel Echegaray-Diez came out on top, which surprised no one. He probably sold his soul to the devil, because his…

Kozakov 2015 qualifying day

Today was the first day of racing, timed racing that is. Riders were doing solo runs, to get a qualifying time, which determines their position in the final brackets. Due to the fact we have a total of 198 (!) riders in open, we will have 3 brackets, A, B and C. That means 14 riders didn't make the cut, which meant people actually had to ride hard to make it into a bracket.

The day started with a bit of clouds, but shortly after 9, we did the first run. As always the first one (often) takes the longest, so when we had the rhythm down, things went smoother and runs went faster.

The screen went up so riders could see their own quali times which made them only want to go faster. As the runs progressed, faster times were set. Everyone tried to shave of seconds to get a better time.

This track is without a doubt, the most gnarly (race) track of Europe, which often takes quite a few casualties. Luckily this year that was not the case and we only had…
