The great thing about riding street luge at downhill events is there is usually ample time to watch the skaters. There’s nothing like watching the ballet-like moves of a skateboarder setting up for a turn and gracefully executing a flawless slide into the corner. Of course, it doesn’t always end well and spectators can expect a good slam into the hay now and then. Watch this video and try to tell me there’s no grace and beauty in the way they negotiate the chunderful corners of Burke Mountain. I wish I could skate but I’ll just have to settle for laying down on my wheels. Follow them downhill.
Did you miss your chance to charge the chunder at Burke? You can get your urethane on this awesome hill this August as Mike Girard has scheduled the Burke Mountain Freeride to satisfy the need for speed. Go.
