SLALOM Racing Spotlight

SLALOM RacingSlolom-Racing-ARTICLEThe small town of Ashland, Slolom RacingKentucky, along the banks of the Ohio River, was host to the 2015 World Championships of Slalom Skateboarding Sept. 18-20. More than 60 competitors came from all over the USA, Canada and as far away as Latvia for three days of racing and fun in the tri-state Appalachian region.

The event was organized and run by the local racing crew, HOSS (Hillbilly Outlaw Slalom Skaters) in conjunction with the annual Cone Fest/Poage Landing Days Festival. The weekend featured great racing with head-to-head hybrid and tight slalom events along with a single-lane giant slalom. This ISSA sanctioned grand finale of the 2015 slalom season offered racers top world ranking points and world titles, but everyone knows the skate family camaraderie is a major draw as well.
