Britannia Classic Downhill Longboarding Event 2012


The 5th Annual Britannia Classic presented by Hawgs Wheels was a great success. The event was held May 25-27th in British Columbia, Canada and had a $5000 cash podium. 160 Top International Riders shredded for 3 days in dry sunny weather and enjoyed our half freeride and half race weekend format. The downhill track is described by some as “the best in world”.

Rebounding from his broken ankle in the 2011 Britannia Classic, Kevin “K-Rimes” Reimer easily beat 2nd place and defending 2011 Champ, Patrick Switzer. The big surprise of the weekend was 16 year old Byron Essert of California taking 3rd place in his first visit to Canada. Big thanks goes out to Switchback Longboards, Landyachtz Skateboards and all our amazing volunteers for all their support.
