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 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…

Carlos Paixão of Brazil won Mega Grand Prix yesterday, beating Dillon Stephens of Canada in both the final race and the entire year's rankings to emerge as the 2015 IDF World Champion.

It was a thrilling end to the 2015 World Cup season, with nothing decided until the final race. There was nothing to separate the two rivals; Dillon had posted the fastest qualifying time, but Carlos responded by winning the Top 10 Shootout with an even faster time. Both had won all their heats during the finals. An entire year's racing hung on the next 1 minute and 13…

Dillon Top Qualifier; Guto Wins the Shootout

Photo: Luciano Lima Jr.

Day two at Mega Grand Prix featured an amazing amount of timed runs. With an open qualification, riders ran the hot track all day long reaching up to 15 rides per competitor. In his second run, Dillon Stephens set the early lead, which he maintained throughout the day. Carlos Paixão took run after run trying to improve his time with no success, and qualified second. But Carlos saved his best for last with a sub 1:13 time to take first place in the Top Ten Shoot Out and win 1000 BRL.

Thiago Gomes Lessa qualified third and is well-placed to win tomorrow. The World Cup is at stake and these three are fighting for the top spot.

A strong pack of Brazilians trailed the top qualifiers: Thiago Mohr,…
