Mt. Panorama, Bathurst: Kevin Reimer continued his dominance over the competition, making it three wins out of three at Newtons Nation. In a blistering final he passed Douglas Dalua Silva while coming out of the Dipper, and took on the notorious Forest Elbow with the barest of airbrakes, skimming the bales and rocketing down Conrod Straight with too much exit speed for the rest to catch.
Micah Green passed Dalua in the final straight to take second and cap an…Click here for the full story

Alex Tongue took home $1,000 in today's Sector 9 Top 10 Shootout, beating track-record holder Kevin Reimer in an exciting day's racing. One of the favourites, Brazilian Douglas "Dalua" Silva almost missed the shootout after crashing heavily earlier in the day, but got up off the massage table only to post an uncharacteristically slow time.
Earlier Canadian Dillon Stephens qualified for tomorrow's finals in first place, beating out two-time winner Kevin Reimer, Alex…Click here for the full story

It should be simple - the fastest guy down the hill wins. And while a China Bomb has a certain charm, we've gone the extra mile to come up with a way to run Newtons 2013 so that everybody gets the maximum amount of runs and stoke, while making sure that the fastest guy down the hill still wins.
It's a brand new format that has never been used before at World Cup level. Read below for all the gory details.

In a major piece of disappointing news, Wollongong City Council has closed Mt. Keira Rd for repairs due to concerns over public safety. The road is in danger of slipping off the edge of the mountain, and the cliff face above the road also needs to be stabilised in order to prevent rock falls. The required road works will not be completed in time for the 2013 Mt. Keira Challenge, and…Click here for the full story

Lea Robbo was the fastest of the women, and there were too many groms to figure out who was the fastest, but Jack Meyn is the fastest runner - he always seems to get the long-distance proddy…Click here for the full story

ASRA is proud to unveil our new rider rego system. If you're organising a race you can use this system to register riders and collect their rego fees prior to your race. It's free, it's easy, and it takes away one of the big headaches of organising a race.
So what is it exactly? If you're organising a race, ASRA will create a Rider Registration Form especially for your event. Riders will have to use this form to register and pay prior to attending the race.…Click here for the full story

Words by Sean Meaney
Kongwak was a sick event put on by some great riders. Cam and Louis really know how to throw an event together, the traffic was very well controlled and the hill was absolutely amazing; nice and steep sweepers leading into a banked hairpin and then running out into a right handed turn before crossing the finish. Speeds where up around 60kph+ and there were plenty of guys who sorely regretted not bringing leathers, or in Ben's case, elbow…

Greetings fellow longboarders!
Welcome to 2011 and another year of exciting things happening here with ASRA.
Looking back over the past year there has been a tremendous growth in this sport we all love and do - longboarding. When I first moved to Australia nearly eight years ago you would rarely see anyone with a longboard. Nowadays they are everywhere. I've skated my local haunt in Manly for the past three years without seeing a single other person there skating.…Click here for the full story

One of the youngest riders at Newton's '09 will be Gabe Gwynne from Sydney. Although still young enough to be at school, Gabe is carving out a reputation in the Sydney downhill scene as one to watch at Newton's.
Gabe has a few big advantages over other riders his age; he's fast, fearless, and he's been mentored by a hard-riding group of…
