BDSL – 2018 Awards Ceremony + AGM

Another year, another amazing show of dedication from racers, skaters and skateboard makers!

BDSL invites you to come join us for our end of year party, awards ceremony and Annual General Meeting (AGM). Please come and enjoy some great local free beer, free food and your friends company.

This year we’ve been amazingly lucky to hook up with one of Bristol’s most iconic hard working brands. Extract Coffee roasters have invited us to celebrate in their roastery, run by a team of absolute grafters, you’ll find more than one skater in their roster and it goes without saying, amazing baristas and coffee on site.

We’re working on a miniramp, but if that fails indoor slalom and other events are possible. Extract is located next to Bristol’s best bouldering wall if you fancy a morning of climbing before an evening of partying, close to the centre and accessible via public cycle ways right from major train stations and bus stations in the city. Also incredibly easy to get to via car. On site free parking is provided.

We hope to see you to celebrate, say thank you to & rabble rouse one last time before the winter hibernation!
See you soon
Dan and the BDSL team

4th Time Lucky – Gurston!

Ist SSSprint Gravity Race Meeting of 2018 – Gurston Down – RE-SCHEDULED to…

NEW DATE – Sunday, April 29th

4th time lucky???! Just got clearance for the next available date at Gurston this year, and entries are now open for riders in all categories below, and for Street Luge ‘Taster Days’.

‘Taster Days’ remain at ¬£75 and include luge, safety gear (ie any leathers, helmet, boots, gauntlets that you cannot bring yourself), hill fees, timing, and uplift through the day. Regular/other riders with all their own gear – ¬£30

As always, I would be grateful if riders could confirm as soon as they can so that I can fully commit to the landowner for this date.

Those who kindly paid in advance…your slots carry forward to the new date. Simply confirm you want an entry.

Please note…
Each meeting this year will be run as a stand-alone event, rather than a championship round. As a result, and to simplify things, there will be no SSSprint Annual or Day Membership, just a flat Hill contribution at each event for regular riders with all their own gear.

The following disciplines may run concurrently at the meeting :

Street Luge
Classic Luge / Buttboard
Stand Up
Gravity Bike
‘Ice Luge’

Meeting Times

Please, could those coming for ‘Taster Days’ arrive no later than 9:30 am to ensure the day is delayed as little as possible by new riders being registered, kitted out and given instruction prior to the start of racing.

Safety briefing for all riders and scrutineering will be at 11:00 am.

If you have any problems, give me a ring on the same number – 07761 823609.


Remember to bring food and drink for lunch – and that you use the hill at your own risk; there is no insurance.

No leathers, no ride. This is a speed sport on tarmac. Appropriate protective gear, including leathers, MUST be worn. If you do not have your own, they are available for hire at £25 per day. You participate entirely at your own risk. Although a great deal of effort is directed into the safety aspects of our meetings, street luging and the other gravity sports practised on the Hill remain potentially dangerous. All persons should carefully note that attendance at SSSprint gravity sports meetings will constitute volenti non fit injuria, that is to say, you and those you attend with will be deemed to have accepted any risk of injury or damage whatsoever, and no claim in respect thereof will lie against the organisers.

See you on the Hill!
