The end of summer coincides with the Crash Boat Downhill 2015. It will be held on August 30th on Route 458 near the famous Crash Boat Beach in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
Why’s it famous? Because Crash Boat Beach is situated in a former military port used to rescue downed crews from Ramey Air Force Base. It still retains some of the original pier infrastructure, which has become a popular spot for fishing and jumping into the crystal clear waters. Sounds like a pretty sweet place to visit, no?
The Crash Boat Downhill is an official National Downhill Federation (NDF) event with a $2,000 prize. The categories are Men, Master, Women, Boys, Junior, Sliding and the Open Downhill main event.The track along Route 458 is a slope with various curves, including a U curve that can get riders going over 80 km/h. We’re stoked that Ionic Flux Team rider Hector “Chino” Reyes will be competing again this year!
Here are the winners for each category:
– Open Downhill: Anthony Chaparro
– Men: Anthony Chaparro
– Master: José Pérez
– Women: Keyla Denisse
– Junior: Byron Cruz
– Boys: Edward Rivera
– Sliding: Tomas Lugo
