On Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Highlevel Downhill Professional Speedboarding Race will feature expert riders racing head-to-head at speeds over 60 km/h near the Highlevel Bridge and Kinsmen Field House.

On Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the fourth annual Ribbon of Green Ultimate Endurance 20-kilometre Skateboard Race will be blazing through Edmonton’s river valley trails.

The winner will take home bragging rights, a beautiful custom built RAYNE longboard and a $1,000 prize purse.
