European Championships Update


With registration now closed we are pleased to announce that we have a total of 100 racers representing 13 countries signed up and paid for the European Championships making it the largest international slalom race ever held in the UK. There will be a total of €2550 in prize money for the Pro’s and some very nice schwag donated by our wonderful sponsors for Am’s, Masters Etc.

We are really excited to be welcoming the current World Champion Joe McLaren to Hog Hill too.

Over the next few weeks we will be frantically working hard to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day. We will have a dedicated team of cone marshals (and yes they are skaters!) that will be manning the track during the dual racing on Friday and Saturday. The GS on Sunday will be marshalled by racers who are not taking part in the GS and have volunteered their service to the UKSSA.

We will be providing lunch each day for all signed up racers. Our cone marshal team will be fed on Friday and Saturday only when they are marshalling.

As is the norm for Hog Hill events there will be a freeride taking place and this is being organised by Timmy Peters and DAS Industries. However as this is an ISSA Major Status race, the primary focus is on Slalom and therefore the freeriding has been scaled down from the usual hordes that attend.

So for one weekend only – the fastest racers in Europe, at the biggest ever international race on our home patch – an event not to be missed!
