It’s a 4 km track with 18 180-degree bends that’s home to the annual KNK longboard camp each summer, the highlight of which is the "Red Bull No Paws Down" event. In this competitors can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h as they hurtle downhill, their hands, as the name suggests, never touching the ground, and if they’re lucky no other parts of their bodies either.
There are many videos online showing you the action, but we’re posting this one for two reasons. First because the rider, Arthur Friedrich Schmidt, carries out a flawless run in which he stands up much of the way, rather than kneeling down in prayer for his life, and second because the soundtrack is New Order’s deathless Blue Monday.
