CHALLENGING TRACK SET TO TEST COMPETITORS
LONDON, 25 September 2022: Will Stephenson, president of World Gravity Sports Federation (WGSF), has said that the track for the upcoming round of the World Downhill Skateboarding Championship (WDSC) in Aksaray, Turkiye [7-9 October] will be challenging and a real test for competitors.
The former world number 2 Street Luger recently took on the challenging track which descends Hasan Dagi, one of two summits of the volcano Mount Hasan. “My overall first impression of the track in Hasan Dağı is that it will be a challenging tactical race. The track is 3km long, dropping 300m with 12 hard braking turns, each one being either a hairpin or a 90 degree turn.” he said, adding.
“WGSF is currently putting together the final safety recommendations and list of what needs to be completed in time for the race. Overall the WGSF are impressed by the calibre of the course, surrounding area and the level of the local event organisers. Hasan Dağı will represent the new standard of events that riders should expect, and we will continue to work with RMM [Race Marketing & Management] on the WDSC to provide a professional racing series and experience.”
The event will be streamed live with all categories covered; qualifying, the knockout rounds, semi-finals and finals will be aired on the WDSC web site, Facebook and YouTube channels and Recast.
