The Catalina Island Classic Downhill Skate Race returned to the Island on Friday May 6-8th.  Under the new restructuring of ownership of Highline Productions, the Classic was held for the 5th year in a row.

The race starts on top of Wrigley Road next to the Inn at Mt. Ada and twist and turns to the finish at entrance road to Wrigley Road Terrace.

Sixty-four professional skaters came soaring down at high speeds in full leather, helmets, and a total lack of fear.

Highline would like to thank the Phil Hernandez, Jeffery Hernandez and the entire City’s Public Work Crew for preparing the track as well as setting up and breaking down the entire event.

Other outstanding thank you’s go out to community members who volunteered and help make the event happen:  Josh Butte – Shuttle Driver, Nicky Flynn – Race Marshall Scooter, Monica Seals – liaison, Clark Morris and Tomas Moreno, Councilman Joe Sampson – basically took on a full time assist role and Eric Shultz for getting riders food all day, and anyone else Highline forgot to mention.

Without community support this event would not be able to happen.
