Cape Town, South Africa- The first IGSA sanctioned event of the 2010 season will get underway next Saturday, March 27-28 near Durbanville, South Africa. The Fair Cape Downhill Challenge is returning to the schedule after a one year hiatus. The event has been granted IGSA National level status.
The road is located about 10 minutes away from Durbanville and was first discovered in April 2006. It was once gravel but the entire 1.9 km (1.2 mi) course had been completely paved in butter smooth tarmac. Fair Cape's top speeds of 105 km/h (65 mph) in Downhill Skateboarding and 117 km/h (73 mph) make it one of the fastest race courses anywhere. Full protective gear and a full face helmet are required. All competitors must pass a mandatory technical inspection before being allowed to compete.
