Boyne Falls, Mich. - Action Board Shop, a longboard shop based in East Lansing has partnered with Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls to host its first ever downhill longboard race called The Battle at Boyne.  

On August 23-24, professional skaters will come to northern Michigan from all over the country to compete in a unique high-speed downhill race.  Racers are traveling from as far away as California, Georgia, and North Carolina.  A selection of the professional skaters includes Jared Beers, the No. 5 junior downhill racer in the world; Ed Gargner, a rider for Arbor Skateboards; and Peter Eubank sponsored by Madrid, Yeehaw Gear, and Caliber Truck Co.  

The race takes place on a mile-long cart path that winds down the side of Boyne Mountain. Riders will reach speeds up to 50 mph. The course ends with a section that leads to the bottom of the Alpine double chairlift that will transport riders back to the top of the hill.  

Practice day for the event is Saturday, August 23 starting at 4 p.m. and lasting until sunset. The race takes place on Sunday, August 24 at 10 a.m. A $3,000 cash prize purse is distributed to the top riders in the Open, Women's, and Junior divisions.  

The entry fee is $95 until the day of the race.  Riders are required to wear helmets and protective pads and gloves. Race leathers are highly suggested but not required.  

Spectators are encouraged to attend this event at no cost. A spectator section and refreshments are available near the race site from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Lodging is available at Boyne Mountain Resort starting at $87 per night for hotel accommodations.  For reservations, call 800.462.6963 or for more information on the resort, visit boynemountain.com.
