Tregaron Freeride 2018

Once again the Brianne Collective did us all proud at this year’s Tregaron Freeride and we saw some of the best in UK’s downhill skateboarding, luge and even turtle and trike! This year’s event also counted as a National Race in the BDSL calendar. Some great photos of the Tregaron event by Kev Hurdle are featured. Continue reading “Tregaron Freeride 2018”

Ride The Dragon Freeride (BDSL) – UK

After being away for nearly 4 year it’s finally back, Ride the Dragon.

This year the event will be extended to cover the Friday afternoon as well, so that’s two and a half days of riding pure untamed Welsh mountain. I’m going to be offering taster days for streetluge newcomers where you’ll be kitted up with all the safety equipment and a race ready luge.

Friday afternoon and Saturday will be open practice and Sunday afternoon head to head racing for all disciplines.

Sign up will be opening on 15th of February. Places will be limited, so please sign up soon entry fee will include camping and also a breakfast sandwich.

Freeride and race: £80.
Taster Weekend: £125

Remember it’s Wales, so bring your big coat and wellies.

BDSL AGM – 18th Nov – Bristol

It’s that time of year again! The BDSL Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Prize ceremony. Where all the racers from the year get together to celebrate another banging year, crown our victors and party!

The event will be in Bristol for the second year in a row as the wonderful people at Roll for the Soul have given us exclusive access again! Food should be available as well as a fully stocked bar.

Split into two parts;

AGM – The actual meeting part of the BDSLs year, talking about planned events for 2018, any committee members that want to step down, voting on new members, rule changes, things to work on for 2018 & any other business. This part is rather dry and takes place before the prize ceremony should anyone want to come along. Time to be confirmed.

Prize Ceremony – The fun part of the evening, where we all party. Time to be confirmed.

The event’s a little earlier this year so as not to clash with Skate To Escape’s Double Trouble should mean it’s a little warmer and easier to roll into the bars in Bristol

Also an opportunity to shoot the breeze with this year’s sponsors & event organisers! Big thanks as ever to:

Brianne Collective for putting on brilliant events, BLBB for stepping up and running BLBB Presents: Bolsterstone Outlaw 2017 & Banditos for Bopeep.
