Welcome to Brisbanestreetluge.com,
Brisbane's very own Street Luge website.

Our aim at BSL.com is to make information about Street Luge more accessible to new and current riders with a focus on safety and professionalism.

Street luge is a gravity powered sport that involves laying down on a custom made sled with wheels. Similar to its counterpart seen in the Winter Olympics, these sleds are used on asphalt roads instead of specially designed ice tracks.

On average riders can experience speeds anywhere between 70 & 110 KPH.  The current world record for a gravity powered vehicle is held by a Street Luge clocked at 157.41 KPH!

When riding, all Street Luge pilots wear full protective gear including helmets, full racing grade leathers, gloves and boots. You will see some riders even wearing body armour and pads.

While being classified as an extreme sport Street Luge is relatively safe when done properly. We encourage all those who are interested in giving the sport a go to contact us and learn how. Regular training days are held where new riders can learn the basics of Street Luge.  

Please feel free to scroll through the links above, find out what happening in Brisbane below or learn more about the sport through the info sections.  Don't live in Brisbane?  No problem just hover over the 'home' tab above to find your closest Street Luge Club.

We love this sport and want you to see why.  We invite everyone to come out and join us on the hill!

Tyler Johnson.

BSL at the Brisbane Billycart Championships

Awesome day down at the Brisbane Billycart Championships today.  This was the first time that BSL has attended an event with a display stall and it was a massive success.  We couldn't believe how much attention and interest we got.  A one point all 4 of us were talking to different people at the same time!

We gave out almost 100 flyers and business cards. Added heaps of people to the mailing list. Got interest for Training Day group bookings from Rotary, PCYC, Scouts, Rovers and even corporate groups.  It was awesome to see so many people super keen for Street Luge.  We cant wait to do this again. 

Big thanks to Richard, Andrew and Steve for helping to man the stall. And huge thanks to Peter Fleming and the Brisbane Billycart guys for letting us have a stall at their event and slipping us in a super short notice!

Minimum age for Training Days lowered

The final piece of the puzzle has been put in place and we are very happy to announce that we have dropped the minimum age for the Street Luge Training Days from 18 to 15. 

Entrants aged 15 to 17 will need to have a parent or guardian co-sign their waiver and be present during the course of the whole day.  This is a change we have been working for for a long time and we are very excited about it. 

This change will help to encourage more youth into the sport and help to secure the future of Street Luge. 

We even hope to see parents and guardians getting in there on the day and give it a go also.

The next Street Luge Training Day is on Sunday 26 May 2013.

Trifecta of Awesomeness

Today we said Bon Voyage to Steve and Lance as they head off to represent Brisbane and Australia at this weekends World Championship event, the Mt Keira Downhill Challenge.  As the rain pours in Wollongong we are all crossing our fingers for a dry weekend. 

Steve & Lance will be joined by 8 other Brisbanite riders next weekend for Newtons Nation, the next leg of the IGSA World Championship circuit.  This is set to be a fantastic event with great racing, awesome extreme sport entertainment and hot music.  Click here for more information & to get tickets for Newtons Nation 2012.

And if that wasn't enough! After Newtons Nation, and in only 2 & a half weeks time, the trifecta of awesomness will crescendo with the best gravity event in Aus! The annual Beat the Bastard Charity Freeride is set to take over Mt Stuart in Townsville once again for 2 days unrivaled riding. 

For those competing and spectating don't forget to send your footage through to Adam at BSLTV to be spliced into great event videos.

What a way to start the season, 3 great events in as many weeks, we can feel the excitement already!  We wish all the competitors & riders from all disciplines the best of luck, ride hard & ride safe.

2011 IGSA Rulebook

We've got some big events coming up.  So its time to make sure your equipment and safety gear is up to scratch.  All riders (especially new riders) should take some time to look over the 2011 IGSA Rulebook making sure all your equipment meets the standards.  Both IGSA world cup events will be run under these rules. 

If you have any questions about your equipment please don't hesitate to contact ASRA or the IGSA.  The last thing you want is to spend all this money and turn up at the event only to find out your gear doesn't meet tech.

You can find a copy of the rulebook here.
