Anyone racing MUST wear leathers during their race and solo qualifying runs.

Spectators and supporters are welcome, and food and beverages are available on-site.

We will try and get as many runs as possible each day. Remember, we can get more runs in if we limit our time hanging out at the top of the hill. As you know from previous years, this event happens rain or shine.

TOUR de MARYHILL

The top 24 qualifiers per class will race. Your qualifying time is made up of one solo run plus the average of your 2 fastest times between approximately 1 pm and 3 pm on Saturday. This time window will be announced ahead of time. You must have at least 2 runs within this time period to qualify for the Tour de Maryhill. The maximum racers per class is 24. If there are more than 24 racers in a class, only the top 24 times will race.

Racing for those who qualify will start at approximately 4 pm on Sunday.

We will be racing the following classes, Standup – Mens, Standup – Women, Mens – Luge, Womens – luge, Adaptive, and Inline.

We will run additional classes (masters, jr’s, ect) during the freeride portion if there are enough riders.

RVOD! (Ryan Vanderveen or Die!)

In honor of Ryan Vanderveen, a Ratz who left us too soon, we want to bring awareness the mental health issues that someone you know, if not yourself, is suffering from. You are not alone, and do not be afraid to seek help where ever you can. You may know someone, maybe someone very close, who took their own life this last year, and we would like very much to prevent that from happening again. RVOD!

UNIVERSITY of MARYHILL

The Ratz and Skate School of Santa Fe are pleased to bring back The University of Maryhill, Class of 2023. Headmaster Joe and his world-class coaching staff will be returning for the weekend with on-course coaching for all skill levels of skateboarding and street luge.

Less experienced riders will have a chance to learn the skills they’ll need them to ride the Loops road from the top by the end of the weekend. High speed safety skills make the difference between falling and crashing. Learn 3 ways to slow down and 4 ways to stop at speed, how to identify different types of turns, cornering techniques and the relationship between hand sliding and wheel sliding.

Advanced riders will be learning start techniques, power pushing, the tactics of drafting, passing, cornering and advancing. Learn about how king pin angles, bushing and wheels sizes, shapes and duros can increase performance. Riders will also be given individualized ‘Homework’ to help them continue to improve and encouraged to set goals for racing.

The University of Maryhill is an additional $107.00 USD ($100 plus $7 in local sales tax) to the G-Ride fee, and you’ll get a University of Maryhill T-Shirt!
