Teutonia - The Scariest Downhill of Your Life

This November, the IGSA’s fastest track will again be invaded for the 11th time in its history by downhill enthusiasts all over the world. Teutonia, Brazil is recognized as the wildest longboard race in the world but it's not because the track is insanely fast, the incredible rough and bad pavement makes it so scary - there is always those little holes in the road that you need to run over - and you need it to do it really fast. Up until three years ago, IGSA didn't allow events with speed higher than 60 mph because of the safety issues. Now , with speeds reaching 72 mph (116 km/h) on a narrow and almost straight hill, it's one of the events where everybody wants to be and the only event that's not about beating others but your limits. Check it out.
