Wow! Did anyone make it around that turn? It looks like a successful powerslide takes commitment from the start...

Personally, I like the part toward the end where they showed the same guy screaming down that one hill and falling in some sort or another.

You really felt for him when they showed them in slow motion and saw the aggravation on his face.

Sweet video! People flying down a hill trying to make a sharp turn....does it get any better? Reminds me of me in my car.

I also haven't jammed to a video like I did to that one in a long time.

Ha! That's a cool video. It seems like the road was unusually slick or something, 'cause inlines shouldn't slide/skid that much, even on steep slopes and sharp curves. Mucho respect to the skaters who were wearing regular pads and not full-body kevlar suits.

There's something about seeing the fall coming that makes it painful to watch

WOW ! I really was impressed with the video. Those painted lines and manhole covers really took out some folks. I was amazed how the inlines seemed to float across the road. That one corner really asked a lot of the skaters and took them out at will! Sure saw different protective armor with motorcycle helmets to boot. I'd be tempted to wear my motorcycle racing leathers with armor in a race like that.

Thanx for sharing, it was educational! Phil

Yeah, the 1:28 girl looks hot.

I think that best way to stop at that speed is to just drop to the knees and let it ride.

Thumbs up Down Hill Racers

Wow!
That's very impressive skating the way those guys,girls powerslide
with both skates into the corners at that speed.
It's pretty insane really but it looks like fun if a person had
all the right protective gear like they did.
Amazing!

Too many hills (like in Britain) can also be tiring!)) At least winters in your country are pretty mild!

Most off Holland is flatter than flat can be, upto 19 feet below sealevel, becauce we have drymilled it and it's a late reaction from the last ice age .Onely in the south-east and in the middle there are a few hills, so you have to do an exiting hybride sport to make fun.
