One of North America’s the most aggressive, technical, and challenging downhill skateboard races and freerides, The Britannia Classic, will be returning for its 8th year near Squamish, BC Canada. Set in a historic mining community just 40 minutes outside of Vancouver, the Britannia Classic features the world’s top International riders, $5000 cash podium and a welcoming atmosphere for riders, volunteers and fans of all ages. This multi-day event is presented by Subsonic Skateboards and is happening May 22-24, 2015. Skater and volunteer registration will open March 14th on www.britanniaclassic.com and will stay open until it’s full.
The 1.5km (1 mile) track has 3 huge buttery hairpins, 1 double apexing sweeper, a finish that is too hectic to race for a total of 5 corners, over 1000ft of vertical and with gravity fed speeds of 55mph / 90kph. The Britannia Classic welcomes Open, Women, Jr 17U, Jr 13U, Masters 30+ and Luge categories.
