Bustin Crew at Soldiers of Downhill 2011 – Bustin Longboards NYC

written by Mike October 17, 2011

The Bustin Crew road tripped to Bainbridge, Ohio this weekend to race at Soldiers of Downhill – a downhill speedboard event with speeds up to 50mph.  Bustin Will Royce dominated most of the competition earning a spot in the final heat – but took a gnarly crash to finish 4th.  Will was rocking his new leathers which is why I believe it was the “Curse of the leathers” which took him out.  Longboard superstition can be very real sometimes.

The Bustin Crew just arrived back to Brooklyn early this morning so I have not gotten a chance to get the full standings of Soldiers of Downhill.  Be sure to notice Will’s new Pro Model wheel which he raced this weekend.  The wheel is a bigger fatter version of the 70mm Bustin Premier Formula wheels which dropped earlier this year.  More reviews soon!  Til then, skate or die.
