Preview: SkateLondon International Freestyle Slalom Competition

skatelondon.jpg This weekend, the Westway Sports Centre in Latimer Road will host an international level skating competition. Inline skaters from across the globe will go to battle in the Freestyle Slalom Competition. They will perform incredible tricks around sets of cones while trying to impress the judges who will send them on to the next round. Excitement builds as the skaters raise the difficulty of their tricks to ensure a place in the grand final. Cones are bound to fly as the pressure builds. For even faster paced action, the speed slalom competition will see skaters race through the cones as fast as possible.

Other events of the weekend include Street Roller Hockey Tournament, Jump and Slide Competitions, "24 minute Le Mans" Relay Race and a Mini-Bladercross Style Assault Course.

SkateLondon is on August 15th - 16th. All events will be taking place at the Westway Sports Centre, 1 Crowthorne Road, W10 6RP. (map) Individual event times vary. See the SkateLondon website for more details about events and the event schedule.
