LADRL # 1 – Great Mountain Race

Posted: May 31, 2011 in adrenaline, Events, News, Skateboard, Videos

With the downhill skateboard scene growing and more and more riders participating in the sport, outlaw events have become increasingly popular in the southern California scene.

The Los Angeles Downhill Racing League (LADRL) is a new group of southern California riders looking to compete, go fast and have fun.

The race was held on a road that I would rather not name and provided for a lot of excitement. Spotters were provided on turns to ensure safety.

“Finish line, Angeles National Forest sign. No crossing the yellow” said William Myrvold “Ready, set, kill it!” With that a pack of around 25 skaters took off down the over 7 mile trek downhill looking to win the $200 that would be provided to the winner.

Tim Del Rosario started at the back of the pack, but quickly overtook everyone proving to be the fastest one out there that day. Austin Nicassio came in second and Alex Gradillas came in third.

Thanks to Xtreme Boardshop and GMR Skateboards for hosting this event.

Be sure to look for more stuff from the LADRL in the near future. There has already been talk of a King of the mountain style race in which everyone times themselves with video footage on a Go Pro camera. The fastest time wins.
