We’ve been silently building up to this years Miami UltraSkate 2016 and the results are in!!!

Firstly, a massive shout out to every single set of feet that pressed the Tarmac this year! A mammoth effort was made by all from the IDSA to those that didn’t quite make the finishing line.

Race – The 2015 Chief Ladiga Silver Comet Skate Challenge

Back in 2010 a certain HammerHead posted this up in the Skatefurther forum.

Hey distance people. I have an idea I would like to get all of your input on for an event possibly in 2011. A multi-day Stage Race (a la Tour De France) where racers start together each day and cover the same distance not in a circuit but point to point.

Roll on 5 years and The Chief Ladiga has become THE distance skateboarding event across the globe. This year was no exception. 3 days of racing over 188 miles and the top 2 were 20 seconds apart with Andrew Andras taking out this years title. Every yeah the level of riding gets closer and closer and the riders are more and more prepared.

Massive shout outs to everyone who entered and completed the 2015 Chief Ladiga Silver Comet Skate Callenge. Special mention goes to the winners Andrew Andras and Sarah Rassieur. And of course to Marion who once again has set the bar high for other distance skate events.

All the pictures on this post were taken by the talented Iván Molina Castrillón and you can see the whole set on his Facebook album.
