Pikes Peak Downhill Skateboard Invitational

September 8th, 2013

Watch 96 of the World’s fastest downhill skateboarders will take on the epic curves of Pikes Peak, America’s Mountain, home of the legendary Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

Beginning at an elevation of over 11,000 feet, racers will compete over 1.9 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.

Due to course length and anticipated traffic delays, uphill bicyclists will not be allowed through the event course. The event course will run from Halfway Picnic area (approximately the 10-mile point) to Glen Cove (approximately the 13-mile point). This restriction will be for the Event Practice Day on September 7th and Event Race Day on September 8th. We apologize for the inconvenience.
