Last year, The Dublin Longboard Crew in Ireland hosted their first ever Irish Downhill Skateboarding Outlaw League. After a few years of hosting Outlaws races, the mates finally decided to put their heads together and created an Outlaw League so us Irishmen (and gals) could get some race practice in before heading out to International events during the summer.
On April 9-11 Bustin riders Brian Davenport and Terron Wood will embark on a 45 hour trip to the Uk to participate in Skaiti, a 24 hour fundraising event to benefit Shelterbox, a relief organization that has been providing emergency housing to families in Haiti. The event is going down on the actual Top Gear race track i.e. some of the nicest, smoothest pavement in the world, and big bright runway lights to keep things moving all night!!! From noon on saturday to noon sunday the track is ours. Some guys are going for the distance record, others are hoping for a personal best. The event has drawn in $11,579.66 already – over 400% more than the initial target. The event is going to be a great time to meet international riders and check out different set-ups, and have a great time camping and skating. A big thank you to Joe Coles and her son who came up with the idea and organized the event.
