Downhill returns to Vernon
The Vernon DH is back for its eighth year next weekend on Middleton Mountain.
Action for the family-friendly downhill skateboarding event goes from 9 a.m.-6 p.m on Saturday. It starts an hour later Sunday.
More than 100 racers from all over North America are expected to compete in the event, which represents the first leg of the International Gravity Sport Association’s (IGSA) North American Downhill Series. There will also be a few visitors from Brazil, Sweden and Switzerland.
The Vernon DH is responsible for sparking the domination abroad by Vernon-area racers Zen Shikaze, Max Erwin, Quin Finocchio, Brendan Davidson and Mischo Erban, who organizes the event and is the reigning IGSA world champion.
Erban is still looking for last-minute sponsors. Anyone interested can e-mail him at email@example.com.
