This weekend the Soldiers of Downhill race has returned for a 4th year and is showing signs of being another incredible event. Keep your eyes on the hill for Matt Kienzle looking to improve his 2nd place finish from last year, and Louis Pilloni aiming to dethrone the champ.

As the Sector 9 Downhill Division drove country to country through Europe attending various skateboard events and IDF World Cup Races, the best skate destinations were often encountered while traveling to the next event. Follow Brendan Davidson as he takes his first run down this glorious Alp road. This follow run only shows less then half of the full road as it finishes deep in the forest.
Rachel Rayne rips some residential runs while rallying radical roads in the rugged Canadian Rockies.
In conjunction with Wheelbase Magazine, the Sector 9 Downhill Division loaded up their motorcycles and hit the asphalt up the coast. With stops to skate and race along the way you can bet we will be back again next year.

With a start line nestled into the mountain at a mere 11,000 feet, and only hay bails and pine trees preventing you from plummeting off a cliff, the Pike's Peak Downhill proved to be one of the most challenging races around. The Downhill Division was thick with A.J. Haiby, Chad Gibson, Chance Gaul, Erik Lundberg, Jackson Shapiera, Louis Pilloni, Max Capps, and Micah Green all pointing it towards the bottom.
Chance Gaul must have a closet full of over-sized checks by now. The 16 year old downhill sensation claimed yet another podium over the weekend in Colorado at the inaugural Pike's Peak Downhill.
