Going to be in Europe this summer? You might want to consider hitting up the Tuixent Freeride in Spain. Click through for all the details.

Here it is!!, the third edition of TUIXENT FREERIDE!!! A whole weekend of freeride down an impressive road surrounded by the best landscapes from Lleida’s Pre-Pyrenees in Spain.
On July 14 and 15th at Tuixent-La Vansa ski station (Lleida – Spain) you can enjoy two complete days of freeride into a 2,5 Km length track with top speeds of 85 Km/h in standup and 100 Km/h in street luge, bus shuttle to the top of the track, camp zone and parking on the ski station facilities and a big fiesta on Saturday night, with several bands playing live on site.
You must consider that Tuixent track is very demanding, so you must have intermediate/advanced rider skills to run Tuixent (top speeds of 85 and 100 Km/h!!!). Full face helmet is MANDATORY and leather suit, unless it is not mandatory, is recommended, you must have into account that is a mountain road pavement, much more coarse than the regular one and we care about your butt. In the case that you don’t have leathers, KNEE AND ELBOW PADS are MANDATORY, and back protector is highly recommended.
You can find all the information on the event on the Facebook event page.
