Tuxient 2012 preview


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.

On July 14 and 15th at Tuixent-La Vansa ski station (Lleida) you can enjoy two complete days of freeride on 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 at the ski station; facilities and a big fiesta on Saturday night, with several bands playing live music on the site.

You must realise that the 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 a leather suit is recommended, you must take into account that this 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.
