The Delaware Downhill Series is a set of 6 races over 2 days (June 18-19) in Newark and Wilmington, DE, which are located around 20 minutes from each other. Organizers say the runs are about 25-35mp/h and 3 runs require sliding. Day 1 (6/18) will be the first race followed by a slide jam and Day 2 (6/19) will host races 2 and 3. The race is great for anyone who is just learning to race and wants to get comfortable with learning how. The Prize Pot should be pretty sweet as sponsors include Bustin Boards, Bliss Longboards, Original Skateboards, Hogwash and more. The event isn’t for another two weeks so you have some time to prepare and get stoked, looks like it should be a good time.
Dylan Blast-Bliss (one of the event’s organizers) requested this via Facebook Thursday:
for everyone who is 100% sure that they are coming, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which races (and slidejam) you will participate in and if you plan on camping. this will make it easier for me to organize the heats and i also would be able to help people out with camping. Thanks!
Camping is encouraged and is $21 per night and only 15 mins away from both races. An after party will be held at the campsite, so why not? Check out the rates and campsite here.
