The Saturday started off as usual at the best little slalom racing weekend in existence, with a glorious day at Stromlo Forest Park, our awesome venue. We race on the Stephen Hodge Criterium Circuit which is normally reserved for bicycle racing. The course was a fairly loose 50 cones, with offset and a ‘gimme’ section that was really tricky.

Jackson Shapiera and Ramón Königshausen shared the honours in the first Conehead Cup of 2009, with Jackson winning the ditch and Ramón getting his revenge in the head-to-head slalom.
Kincumber ditch is notorious for being wet at just the hint of rain, yet was miraculously dry on Saturday after a solid week's rain. A field of 23 riders took on the challenge, with Switzerland's Ramón Königshausen setting the early pace by using a slalom board and slalom-style pump to… Click here for the full story

Round 2 of the 2007 Conehead Cup went off with a record 38 riders from around Australia taking on the flesh-tearing crete of Kincumber Ditch.
After an extended period of wet weather, a couple of days of sun had us optimistic that the ditch would be dry, and so it seemed when we arrived. But although the sunny weather held, the accumulated moisture in the side of the hill began to seep through the concrete, slowly making one side of the course wet and… Click here for the full story

The Ainslie Ditch isn't for the faint-hearted. Although it isn't steep, the transitions are abrupt, the flat bottom is narrow, and the whole thing is divided into segments separated by rows of concrete teeth and oddly mismatched walls. The perfect location for a race!
The gnarl factor meant that everybody started slowly, but as confidence grew people started to really attack the course. Jed Goggin slashed his first time by 21 seconds, and… Click here for the full story

A drainage ditch on the NSW Central Coast was the venue for the best day of racing in a long while. It had everything—cones, transition, and sausages. The NACOSS guys put a great show on and worked really hard to get the ditch clean and skateable.
The riding was amazing. Glen was a class above everybody else all day and looked like he'd been born riding that ditch. Scott Tansley, Matt Kittai and Hawkon… Click here for the full story
