Laguna DH kick off the IDF NorAm tour

Just six days after the conclusion of the South American Continental Tour, the 2017 IDF World Tour moves on June 23 to North America with an opening race in the mountains of Atoyac, Jalisco, Mexico.

Hosted by Tree Skateboarding, led by Gerardo Moreno, the 4th annual Laguna DH will be an IDF World Qualifying Series (WQS) for the 2nd straight year. The course features a fast straightaway, high speed crash corner, and a series of repeating sweepers. With high temperatures and changing pavement conditions, you can expect lots of sliding, crashing and passing. A low entry fee, freeride day, slide jam, amateur class and focus on maximizing runs ensures high value for registrants.

Registration fee: $100 (IDF Open Category)

Includes: Racing, camping, 3 meals (1 per day), freeride, slide jam and event t-shirt
