Event Description

On September 7th and 8th 2013, the world’s fastest downhill skateboarders will take on the famous Pikes Peak highway, the world's highest toll road at 14,125' elevation, and home of the legendary Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

The Hillclimb, also known as the Race to the Clouds, has operated for nearly 100 years, famously competing on dirt and gravel for decades. In 2011, the highway was paved all the way to the top, opening up the fastest, and most challenging sections, to downhill skateboarding for the first time.

Beginning at an elevation of over 11,000 feet, racers will compete over 1.4 miles of sweeping turns, steep drops, and banked hairpin corners. With top speeds expected to reach 60+ mph, the Pikes Peak Downhill course will be one of the most highly anticipated stops on the International Downhill Federation schedule.
