Hey cats and dolls, hope you’re all ready and registered (or about to register) for the 3rd annual ACME Downhill Race! We’re proud to be partnering with the Bergen County Bombers to bring you this years main event – The IDF World Qualifier ACME Downhill!
The Bergen Bombers started this event back in 2013 and it pretty immediately became a success. The nature of the hill, mid-40 mph, with 2 hair-pins, little road traffic, and close proximity to NYC led to a gem of a hill that is easily reached from the Big Apple.
This year the organizers have worked with the IDF sanctioning body and for 2015, ACME is (in addition to a rad course and a hell of a good time) an IDF World Qualifier race. That means points for all of your competitive folks!
Here’s the famous skate Dad – Mike Girard – taking a run from top to bottom!
HOWEVER! Not all who race must be pro! This weekend ACME provides not only high-level racing and competitors from across the entire spectrum of downhill skateboarding, but also an opportunity for more recreational riders as well. All Friday, open skating of the hill will be available to all registered for the Freeride. No leathers, no IDF membership needed, just bring your waiver, safety equipment and Freeride registration and you’re clear to skate!
