Round 4 of The Gunslinger Steepways showdown went down this last weekend, Round robin racing, everybody race, everybody!

 Steepways Showdown 4 - Round Robin Racing

The fourth installment of the Steepways showdown event was last Sunday, we had postponed it a few months because of other races around SA and Craig unfortunately having a knee injury. Never the less Craig still put on amazing day of skateboarding, slightly less competetors than usual but great stoke all round. A total of 9 racers meant everybody had at least 8 heats! At the end of the days racing we had a few ties.The tiebreaker for 1st was between Jay Jay And Mark, with Mark sneaking in front again for 1st. Huge Shoutout to Craig and family for making these rad days happen and not even skating himslef! Thanks Gunslinger Longboards, Fat Ant Bushings and The Water essence of eden.

Results:

1. Mark jansen Van Rensburg (9 points)

2. Jay Jay Brits (9 points)

3. Juan White (11 points)

4. Peter Kohne , Stephan Engelbrecht, Christo Cilliers  (12 points)

5. Storm Johnson (13 points)
