The skate board racers participating in the annual Mossel Bay Sports Festival will on Saturday, 3 October 2015 and Sunday, 4 October 2015, vie for South African championship titles down the steep slopes of Dana Bay.
The organisers of the annual Riding Road Mountains, an extreme sport event, expect participants from all over South Africa as it is a national event, which is sanctioned by the South African Gravity Riders Association, the sport’s governing body. The South African champions in the respective divisions will be crowned at this year’s event.
The fifth edition of the Riding Road Mountain forms part of the annual Mossel Bay Sports Festival, which takes place from 1 October to 8 October. The Sports Festival is co-ordinated by the Mossel Bay Municipality as a project to stimulate the local economy and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
The event will take place from 08:00 to 18:00 on both days. The racing will start from the top of P Lineare Street down to the parking lot at First Beach in Dana Bay. Eight riders, Kyle Bruwer, Rory Butler, Giloume van der Walt, Michael Geeringh, Hanno van Vuuren, Dylan Hyman, Nikita Valerie, Anthony Sheppard and Mike Walder will represent Mossel Bay in the event.
“Downhill skating is one of the fastest growing sports, locally and internationally. It fits hand in hand with the vision and progression and ever growing popularity of the Mossel Bay Sports Festival,” said the event co-ordinator, Mr Michael Sheppard.
