Mount Tabor Downhill Challenge 2016 Recap - Subsonic Skateboards

For 6 years in a row now 100+ skaters of all ages from around the Northwest and beyond have gathered at Mount Tabor park to race the infamous hill bomb for a day.

After the end of last years event it was announced that it was the 5th and final MTDHC, however this was upsetting to many riders, spectators and organizers alike. With the help of volunteers this event was put back together by Eric Hoang of Daddies Boardshop where there was a solid turnout of riders.

Masters heat

 With 4 different racing classes (groms, womens, open and masters), this race allows riders of all ages and skill levels to compete with other people who race among others who fall under the same skill category. Since this is a hill that tops out around 35mph and requires no sliding, riders get to practice their old school tucks by placing their feet as close together as possible on the board while maintaining a tuck.
