The 2009 Maryhill Festival of Speed will feature more opportunities for Downhill Skateboarders to race than ever before. A new “Last Chance Race” will be held on Saturday afternoon to give 48 competitors a last chance to get into the “Open Final” field of 96 starters.
The organizers of the High Rising Downhill Extreme scheduled for May 2-3 have decided to postpone the event for one week due to a very poor weather forecast. The event has been rescheduled for May 9-10.
On May 2-3, the High Rising Downhill Xtreme will be run at the Houwteq complex, situated outside of Grabouw, South Afica. It is the first event of the year organizd by the South African Gravity Racing Association.
