The legendary Midwest push race and slide jam is back! Action Board Shop and Go Green Longboarding are proud to present Madness in the Mitten 2015. It will happen April 25th. The push race will take place on the Lansing River Trail, which features brand new pavement on some parts, chunder, bridges, and pedestrians on others – all of which make this race a truly unique and challenging event. The course is approx. 4.5 miles long, so even if you don’t plan on racing to win, come cruise the course with us for a scenic skate, lots of people do. There will be cash prizes for the top 3 finishers, and the top 10 will receive product prizes. There will also be a raffle for all of those who participated. We have numerous sponsors lined up – Bustin has been a supporter of madness and the Michigan longboard scene since 2008. Watch Bustin Mike D push way out front at the beginning of this movie (Madness 2) , riding one of the first Maestro prototypes in 2009
The slide jam will take place on a hill just outside of East Lansing. We may set up a kicker ramp, cones, who knows. The location will be announced closer to the event date. Prizes will be awarded for best trick, longest slide, most style, etc. Note: most of the product prizes will be given out at the push race. Some prizes will be held for the slide jam, but even if you don’t want to race, we encourage you to sign up for the push, cruise the course with us and have fun, and then you’ll also be entered to win raffle prizes after the race.
The push race and slide jam are open to riders of all skill levels and ages. At check in, all riders are required to sign a waiver. If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign for you.
