The Schengen Invasion - Europe 2016

The IDF is pleased to announce the European Tour events for 2016, after many long nights of discussion and negotiation we are happy to announce events and dates to determine who will become the Continental European Champion in 2016 and who will be up on the World Tour leaderboard battling for World Cup Series glory heading into the home stretch of South America. 

TMI Lilyhammer

After the bounty of the americas the IDF pirate ship will set sail across the Atlantic for the Schengen line, where riders will jump the fence and then in somewhat of a reverse invasion, head north to Viking country and the beautiful Olympic Ski resort in Lilyhammer to take on the challenge of defeating these Norwegian Knife throwers. It will be a titanic World Cup battle down the roller coaster that is the Olympic Ski Jump road to determine who will win the viking riches and the valuable World Cup points in the first European event of the…

2016 World Tour Ranking Changes

The World Rankings are being changed for the 2016 season. We’re bringing in a new category, combining two other categories, adjusting the number of races that are included, and adjusting the points awarded for those races. These changes are being made to ensure the World Rankings retain their fairness and integrity.

Masters Skateboard

Masters Skateboard is being trialled in 2016 as a new category. Rankings for Masters Skateboard will now be collected in all Continental and World Tour events. To qualify for Masters a rider must turn 35 (or older) during the current race season.


The IDF will be combining Street Luge and Classic Luge into a single Luge category for the 2016 race season. After long discussions we are excited to announce that Luge will be offered at all World Cup events this year and very much hope the combined category and reduced points requirements will create some strong results. It…

A New World Order - 2015 World Tour Champions

A big year in 2015 saw the emergence of new World Champions in a number of Divisions in the race for Titles and an inaugural World Tour Cash purse of $8,000 USD. In a changing of the guard all the categories had maiden World Champions.

In a season of racing that went down to the wire Brazilian Carlos Paixão edged out Canadian Dillon Stephens in the last World Cup of the year to take the title, the crown, and the $2,500 winners purse as the 2015 Downhill Skateboard World Champion. We all know that Brazilians love to go fast but in doing so Carlos signalled to the world not to underestimate the Brazilians on any track anywhere. This was made abundantly clear by fellow Brazilian Thiago Lessa taking 3rd spot in the title race. Canadian multiple World Champion Kevin Reimer ended the season in 4th spot while American Zak Maytum rounded out the top Five.

The International Downhill Federation on behalf of the downhill community worldwide would like to…

Bernardo Brambila qualifies first at La Violenta

Curves and rocks. Photo: Emiliano Pineda

Bernardo Brambila of Brazil took pole position today by taking advantage of the afternoon tailwind to post a time of 2:12.140, edging out Brazilian Douglas Dalua, followed by a pack of fast locals.

In Womens, Magda Blanc of Argentina had the fastest time of 2:31.595, edging out a strongly finishing Sabrina Ambrosi who was slicing four seconds from her best time with every run, and ended only a tenth of a second behind.

Local knowledge was the big factor today. The track is long and hard to memorize, containing many shallow potholes that are ridable, but often cause riders to break tuck and lose speed. Everybody's times tumbled throughout the day as they gained familiarity with…

La Violenta: Day 1

Shivering in their leathers, riders battled through a cold and damp practice day at La Rioja, Argentina, an area known for its dry climate.

Tiritando entre sus cueros, los competidores batallaron durante un día de prácticas frío y húmedo en La Rioja, Argentina, una zona conocida por su clima seco.

A rare patch of sun lights up the dramatic surroundings

The track is a leg-burning, high-speed, three-kilometre tuck, but there are no genuine straights. Instead it's a series of sweepers that are at the edge of grip, and in today's damp and patchy conditions most riders took a conservative approach, preferring to stay safe for tomorrow's inevitable dry weather. Between the sweepers…

IDF looking for a front-end designer

The IDF has been working on a new website for over a year. It's a long and slow (but steady) process, due to the fact we rely on volunteers but this process is now in the final stages. The technical part is done for the most part, the graphical part is done. Now we need someone to convert this design into a working html grid.
That's why we're reaching out to our members, since we're looking for a volunteer front-end designer, with the emphasis on front-end. We're not looking for a graphical designer, not a back-end php designer, but specifically a front-end designer.
He/she must be able to work with;
- CSS3
- jQuery
- Javascript
- BEM (preferred)
- Twig (preferred)
- Git (or Mercurial)
Next to that responsive design is a must since a lot of our users use their mobiles to…
