Douarnenez Slalom Tour, Brittany, FRANCE - 2012, July 8th

Post by Guillaume Saint-Criq » Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:56 am

Here is an extra event from Island Slalom Tour organizers.
But it will not be on an island this time, and it will be part of the French Slalom Cup 2012.
We want to organize a contest open to almost everybody. We want the street skateboarders and longboarders to join the slalom skateboarders in a fun contest. That’s why we chose to run a slalomcross in order to please the longboard racers. But expect also a curvy and smooth giant slalom that slalomers will enjoy.

The Island Slalom Tour crew organizes contests since 2006. Some great racers such as Vincent Berruchon and Petr Novotny were really satisfied to take part in our contests. We are co-organizing the event with a local skating association, who already organized several street skating contests. We will be supplying them with our knowledge about slalom skateboarding.

As the spot is located in the heart of the city, we can expect a fair number of spectators during the summer holidays.

I just heard about this event, and it looks awesome. That hairpin turn looks crazy! Looking forward to seeing photos from the event! I will be in Las Vegas this summer, and I am wondering if there anre any similar Vegas Shows like this one, and if so, are any of them at the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay, because that is where I am planning on staying. :)
