DEMONS OF DOWNHILL, IGSA WORLD-CUP USA, ON FOR OCTOBER 20-22 AT JESTER HILL RD IN BAINBRIDGE, OHIO
(BAINBRIDGE, OHIO) (August 16, 2006) -- The worlds top gravity sports athletes will once again travel from around the globe to compete in Bainbridge, Ohio, near Chillicothe, at the annual Demons of Downhill Street Luge, Skateboard, and Gravity Sports Championships. This is the only U.S. installment of the International Gravity Sports Associations World-Cup series, which hosts races in Sweden, Switzerland, Brazil, and South Africa. The three day event, now in its¡¦ 6th installment, will heat up the streets October 20-22, 2006. The Jester Hill course is a 1.2 mile long track with fresh pavement allowing top speeds on a luge nearing 70mph and top speeds on a downhill skateboard close to 60mph.
Gravity sports include classes such as Street Luge, Downhill Skateboarding, and Gravity Bike along with four other contested categories. These sports have been evolving since the 70s, but were made widely popular when featured in the X and Gravity Games. These sports all feature athletes racing at speeds up to 70 mph powered only by gravity. Street Luge requires riders to lay down in a feet first position on their backs. Lean steered with only your feet for breaking, luge is the fastest of the sports. The other major class is Downhill Skateboarding. Riders in this class race super technical longboards at break-neck speeds, again, with only their feet for breaking.
The IGSA world-cup series is a world-wide set of points races where pros compete not only for the race win, but also to gain points for a chance at the World-Cup title. These races include the Mountain Games in Are Sweden, DHX in Rio Brazil, the World Championships in Scheid Switzerland, and Hot Heels South Africa along with Ohio¡¦s Demons of Downhill.
Ohio¡¦s three day event will host one day of practice, qualifying, and racing with awards following Sundays finals with parties each and every night.
