Fair Cape Downhill Challenge 2013 was a roaring success. We had almost 50 riders

entering on race-day, causing a long registration process and a late start. The riders didn’t

seem to be too fazed, though, as the smiles told us. We had representation from the

Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng and a lot of grom (Junior) riders.

Over 120 riders in total competed in the racing.

The wind conditions were not optimal but made for tight racing and drafting tactics, allowing

for plenty of passing action and tons of stoke as riders pushed their speed tucks down the

hill to squeeze out the speed.

Open Skateboard finals were intense, super tight and run in low light. The best of the best

that day pipped themselves against each other with “Kloof Nek Bomber” Decio Lourenc’o

taking the number one spot. Nick Hook had an intense wobble just before the finish line but

held it down. After the finish the placing for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th was so tight line judges had

to review the line video footage to call it.

Well down to the Jet Master Glen Phillips coming third and Fat Ant Boss Anton Pratt coming

4th. Super Grom Camden Lategan took 2nd by a hand but deserved it all the way as he was

skating on top form all weekend. Reece Trout and Nick Hook took 5th and 6th respectively.

The full results for the various categories are listed below.
