Street Lugeing

Also known as land or road luge, Street Luge is an extreme sport that can basically be performed anywhere there is a paved street. It is thought that skateboarders started the craze in the seventies when to reduce the risk of getting injured, they modified their boards to lay on them instead of standing. Its gravity-powered speeds of up to 70mph make it popular with many outdoor sports enthusiasts and it's been featured in the X-Games. Races can be individual time trials or have up to 20 racers sharing the same tarmac..
