Standing on a skateboard, no brakes, and four wheels, skaters can careen down hills at speeds up to 90 MPH! To slow down for a sharp hairpin turn the skaters will throw the board into a controlled slide, and then lean far enough off the board they have to place their hand on the ground. Racing just millimeters from fellow racers, where the slightest wheel touch is certain doom.
Maryhill is not about pure speed, it is about taking the best race line. Some races only ten feet separate first from last and after two miles of riding the winner is sometimes decided by size of a wheel!
