Faircape Downhill Challenge 2015

Faircape Downhill final

The Location:

The Fair Cape course is situated 10mins from Durbanville, which is about 20km from Cape Town, amid wheat fields, vineyards and dairy pastures, looking across to Table Mountain.

Race Course:

The course is 1.9km long from start to finish. The road surface is extremely smooth and all about the speed. The course starts with a straight push and then into a tight right turn. The road curves to the left and back into a straight. Flying down the hill you prepare for the final right which drops into the fastest section of the course the Fair Cape drop, where top speeds of 108km/h have been reach for downhill skateboard and 117km/h for street luge. During the summer months the South East wind often blows, which is an excellent tailwind for some extra speed. Tactics play a critical role on this course!


Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers in each category:
Open Skateboard
Junior 1 Skateboard (14 yrs and under)
Junior 2 Skateboard (18yrs and under)
Ladies Skateboard
Classic Luge

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
