EDIT: EVENT IS POSTPONED

Message from Event Organizer:

“Hey Guys I have some really bad news. I just got off the phone with the director of the parks and rec board. Despite granting us the sanction permit to use the roads for this Sunday, the Parks and Rec board has today decided not to let us proceed with the event until after their October First meeting when they will vote on and impose a fee for us to use the top section of the hill. We are all extremely frustrated and it seems the only way to circumvent this obstacle is to postpone the event. I deeply apologize for any inconveniences or let-downs. We, the organizers, are still reeling from this decision (myself especially, as I have already purchased a flight across the country to host the event. All paypal pre-registrations will be refunded as promptly as possible (most likely in the next few hours). Again, I am very sorry.”

Video: Skatesgiving Does Soldiers of Downhill 2012

While record numbers of people flocked to New York City in October for the Broadway Bomb, another set of shredders headed out to Ohio to take place in one of the fastest races in the country, Soldiers of Downhill. The race course is gnarly and makes for some absolutely epic racing. This year the Skatesgiving 2012 crew made Soldiers part of their trip, and I couldn’t be more thankful. The East Coast’s own, Brian Peck, along with McLovin and Gabe took the the camera, displaying some smoooooth steadicam action and great camera angles; as always, Matt K kills the edit. Give it a peep and let us know what you think in the comments.
