Slalom Skateboarding Championships

August 22nd, 2013

This year’s European Slalom Skateboarding Championships were held close to home this year at Redbridge Cycling Centre in London, better known as Hog Hill. From 2-4 August, the three day competition attracted a total 95 amateur and professional competitors from all over the world. Racing downhill at speeds of up to 35mph, slalom skateboarding is a skillful and risky sport. In fact, it’s one of the original skateboard disciplines, along with freestyle and downhill, dating back to the 1970s. Competitors must weave between a line of scattered cones, sometimes riding solo and sometimes in a head-to-head duel.

Four riders notched up hat-trick victories in their respective classes: Henrik Wadsten took the Overall Masters title, Kathrin Sehl won the Women’s, Sebi Vorhölter the Amateur and a great performance from Petr Matous earned him the Junior Crown.
