Extraordinary Race 2014 - Beton on Fire

Have you ever wanted to try going down a bobsleigh track on a skateboard? Guys from SEBA, a skater’s owned brand with a cooperation with La Plagne ski resort have indeed and even pushed that idea a bit further. Since summer 2012, La Plagne is one of the two stages of the SEBA Beton on Fire event that attracts the world’s best in-line skate, long board, sledge and buggy rollin’ riders in a crazy timed race on the Olympic bobsleigh track. The fastest riders reach speeds of 103km/hr over the 19 bends and 1.5 km of concrete track with 8% incline. Check it out.

The Beton On fire event is a circuit composed of several stages where the world's best downhillers of each discipline (rollerblades, skateboard, street luge and Buggy Rollin) are invited to compete against the clock. The first round took place at the Bobsleigh track of the City of Altenberg, Germany, putting on a great show involving strong heartbeat and adrenaline peaks. The main principle is simple, get down alive as quickly as possible. Sounds like a lot of fun don't you think?
