I recently watched Don Nguyen smash down an insane section of Baxter Street in Los Angeles. While reading a discussion on Slap, I decided to do some research.
Nuge bombed a different route on Baxter from Alvarado St. to Lakeshore Avenue. Let’s compare the two routes.
If you re-watch the video it takes Nuge around 10 seconds to go 390 feet. 390 / 10 gives you an average of 39 feet per second.
Buckfitchesmetgoney at Slap calculated Nuge was going around 53mph.
If you are looking for some more gnarly hill footy, this clip has you covered.
