The Race is on for $8000 Cash Purse

The IDF board has been hard at work in the off-season putting together a US$8,000 cash purse for the 2015 Tour Champions.
Never before has the world body come to the table to reward our winners in this way. Why are we doing this? We think our members deserve it, and it's a small step in the the right direction for the top riders and title contenders who invest so much in the World Tour. We all love watching the best go toe-to-toe on the toughest, most technical, and insane downhill tracks in the world. But we also recognize the extra effort you put in signing autographs and giving advice to local kids and fans, promoting and drawing attention to our events, and the endless travel to far-flung areas of the world to promote downhill racing.
We know you do it because you love racing and the community around it. We believe World…

Angie's Curves 2015 is Cancelled

The IDF received some disappointing news today. This is a good time to remind everyone that when one door closes another opens.

"Sector 9 regrets to announce that ANGIE’S CURVES 2015 IS CANCELLED. The ownership of the property where Angie’s Curves is hosted has changed. Due to this change, we will not be able to conduct the event. We apologize for any inconvenience this has created. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to bring one of the most challenging downhill events to the skateboard community. Plans are already in the works, so expect to see another World Class Skateboarding Event in 2016!" - Louis Pilloni

Standard Registration Time for Events

A while back the IDF decided to set the opening time of a registration on a 'fixed' time. That means every event registration will start at the same time, regardless of which event or on which day the registration will start. It's always the same time.

Why did we decide on a fixed time ? We chose a point, where most 'time zones' are awake and thus able to register for a race. This way there's a more equal chance for riders of getting registered for an event which is highly sought after, like Maryhill, which starts this Saturday. And the day before it's the priority registration Kozakov and the open registration for LillyHammer which open as well, so three events will open its registrations this weekend.

We set the time for the registrations at 23:00 CEST. We use the European format here, since the IDF is based in Strassbourg, France). Check the list below what your local time is.

  • UTC 21:00
  • Amsterdam/Paris 23:00 CEST (UTC…

Updated Helmet Requirements for 2015

Due to the increased speed, difficulty, and level of competition that now exists at IDF events, we believe that it is the best interest of the sport to begin to enforce certain requirements for safety equipment. As many of you will agree, we must start with helmets.

An increasingly large number of riders are now using uncertified helmets made by a wide variety of manufacturers. Because these helmets have not been scientifically tested and proven to reduce the severity of head impacts, many of them contain less than satisfactory protection.

The following is a brief overview of the types of helmets that will be considered acceptable for competition in IDF events in 2015 forward.

1. Any full face helmet that carries a certification from ATSM, CE, CPSC, SNELL, or another credible certification source. Flight, Bicycle, Skateboard, etc. If it is certified, it has been tested and inspected by professionals…

Connor Ferguson - Grom No More

Mt Ruapehu is a brutal hunk of volcanic rock that makes humans seem puny in comparison, but today Connor Ferguson marked it as his own, overcoming Byron Essert, Tony Graves and James Kelly in the final of the Mt Ruapehu Gravity Festival. Earlier Rachel Bruskoff took out the Women's category, and Tyron Knight dominated the Juniors. Matt Boortman won the consolation final, making him the top New Zealander.

The day started the same as the last two days - wet, cold, foggy and windy. The early rounds came and went, and so did Jimmy Riha, eliminated in a stacked second round heat by Australians Callum O'Callaghan and Dejan Djukic. The top pros were keeping their powder dry,…

Brennan Bast the No. 1 Qualifier at Ruapehu

Photo: Sietse Vliegen

Mt Ruapehu, Wellington - The weather cleared for an hour, the track dried, and Brennan Bast laid down the fastest run of the day, beating out all the big names.

The first three runs were wet, and riders felt their way through their course, testing the grip, and sometimes struggling to even find the course amid the dense fog.

The fourth run was a different story; the track had dried completely during the lunch break allowing riders to carve around 10 seconds off their best times. An afternoon of fast dry runs lay ahead when the rain returned heavier than before, and qualifying was abandoned for the day.

The finals will begin tomorrow morning. The weather might be cold, but the competition is about to get red hot.
