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.

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.

This event is proof that there is a growing … Continue reading Event – Paris Push Race 2 Results
