Three races are complete, two more remain until the king of the Freiburg Winter Outlaw Series 2017 can be crowned.

On the 25th February 30 downhill warriors drove through the mist to emerge under sunny Kaiserstuhl skies and battle it out down a tight and technical track for the prize. A small amount of cash, a huge amount of glory..

Before I let the pictures do the talking, I’d like to say a few thanks to those who made the event run so smoothly. Benni, for spending the day driving up and down the hill with 30 skaters on the van! Sophie, marshalling half way down the hill, keeping track of every car, tractor, cyclist and skater all day. Hack for trusting us with his van for shuttling, and for sponsoring the cost from Layback Freiburg Skateshop. Jakob for organising the crash mats which saved a couple people from ending up in the vineyards. Last but not least, you, the riders, for driving time and time again all the way to Freiburg to join in the fun. Thank you.

Now on to the pics, credits to Andreas Seemann and Manuel.


 

 

 

Current standings

 

For anyone interested, the points system is stolen from the Formula 1 system where the top 10 finishers receive points. The best 3 results of the 5 races count towards your total. Janto has won 2 races so far and is in a strong position to win the series, but Jan is not far behind with a 1st and a 2nd place finish. Last year the title was not decided until the final heat of the final race…

 

Next week

On the 25th March we ride again! Meeting point is Layback Freiburg Skateshop, Schopfheimer Strasse 3, 79115 Freiburg. We meet at 10am and organise a space in a car for everyone to make it to the spot. And the spot? You’ll have to wait and see.

Shuttlebus will be at the race again, but this time requires a form of payment. It will be the last event for our Orange Whale and after the race, I’d appreciate the help of anyone who is sticking around to help clean the bus and peel off the stickers before it is sold. RIP.

 

Season finale

We are pleased to invite you to a crazy weekend of skateboarding fun with us on the 29th April. Outlaw race season finale on Saturday, season opening party with prizegiving, BBQ, miniramp and beer at Layback Freiburg Skateshop in the evening. On Sunday we’ll go skating if anyone is awake!
