Johnys Hill freeride organized by Asociácia downhill skateboarding – ADHS will take place from the 6th to 8th of September, 2019 in Slovakia.
Back in 2014 the track hosted the first-ever Slovakian Championship but went silent for 4 years. During that time the scene wasn’t up to much until the current organizers successfully brought it back to life in 2018. Check out the last year’s video:
The organizers of Johnys Hill are a crew of 3 skaters who, for the purpose of organizing longboarding events, founded a civil association ADHS (Association of Downhill Skateboarding) back in 2017. The crew consists of Dávid Watter, Roman Sándor and Michal Dzúrik.
The track is situated in the district of Bánovce nad Bebravou in Slovakia. If offers a 3.1 km long course with an average grade of 7.5 % and an elevation of 230 meters while providing some nice mid-run views. At last year’s edition during a top speed contest the crew recorder Vašek Čvanara going as fast as 81 km/h.
The organizers ensure the track will be closed off for traffic and protected with additional safety measures such as course marshals, hay and safety nets. As per usual, the even will also have an ambulance present during the event.
After a successful party last year, Johnys Hill freeride will cater with three live performing bands each night followed by a DJ to continue late into the night. For those who are not into dancing, the crew also prepared a raffle and mini-contests where riders can win prizes courtesy of the event sponsors.
With the rider’s limit set to 100, the 2-day freeride costs 45 euro for early registrations before August 1st. After that date, the registration is set to 50 euros. The crew will also provide 1-day tickets at a lower cost. With currently 87 riders, there is still a chance to join.
