King of Kings Gap is BACK! We helped organize the first Kings Gap DH & Push Race in 2014 with Nathan Sholley (former host) and we are stoked to take the reins this year. Local shop Funtastik is sponsoring this event as they did every year since the event started.
What is it?
King of Kings Gap is an awesome 2+ mile Downhill Longboard Race where riders in heats of 3-4 go 30-35mph to see who is the fastest. Top 2 move on to the next heat. This is an excellent racing experience for intermediate to expert longboarders. At the end of Downhill Racing we flip the course for the grueling Uphill Push Race! All proceeds from the Push Race will go to the Carve 4 Cancer Foundation.
Carve 4 Cancer is a new non-profit organization dedicated to Shredding Blood Cancers through extreme snow-sports &
action-sports events and awareness campaigns. You can check out there Facebook page, on Instagram @Carve 4 Cancer and on the website www.carve4cancer.com
