Teutônia, Brazil - When the riders and organizers arrived at Teutônia hill in Linha da Harmonia, Teutônia/Brazil this morning they faced the strongest wind storm ever seen before in the hill. Wind blew tail at the top of the hill, side at the big turn and head at the steepest loops turning the track into one of the most scaring experiences one could taste at the Downhill Skateboard so far.
Teutonia, Brazil - With more then 5000 spectators last year lining the course they were amazed while watching racers compete on the worlds fastest track. 2013 marks the second time the IGSA World Championships are being held in South America.

Unfortunately today we received the bad news that Argentina's race is definitely canceled because the government of San Luis banned the practice of Downhill in all province. It is a big loss for the sport in Argentina and throughout South America. They have done everything possible but unfortunately the possibilities of negotiation have been exhausted.
