Some people are just mad! I find it hard enough going down safely and I’ve got brakes!

  • “The crash occurred in the first corner”

    Some people really haven’t got the brains they were born with.

    The first corner is the loop. With the cafe and the blind exit from the car park.

    Following a long, steep, straight, fast descent.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    I live at the top of a hill and occasionally we see guys doing this. They scrub off speed by zig zagging. Normally they take turns and someone further down let's the others know if the road is clear.

    I get all these videos of skateboarders going downhill on my facebook feed... admittedly I always enjoy watching them, so I am partially to blame :-)

    Well, aren't skateboarders immortal? Nothing bad will happen to them. Everybody loves watching them crash. Nobody watches to see them succeed. To be honest the worse the recorded injury the better. The more twisted(from normal) the leg or foot is the better. Kind of ghoulish but we all love it.

    No... no we don't all love that.
