Location

Here is all the information you need to get to the venue, attend the 4 Down video contest premiere and register:

The race course

The track is located in Bukovac, 15 minutes from the athlete hostel

Arguably the fastest track in the World. Just over 700 meters long athletes clear the course in 52 seconds. Athletes must navigate 14 turns, numerous rollers and jumps to make it to the finish corral. A challenge for even the world’s best but also fun if you manage to slow it down. With the new left hand corkscrew this track will possess new challenges and level the regular vs goofy footed playing field.

Where to stay

  • The official hostel for the World Championships is “The Pool Hostel”

    This hostel features a pool and rooms that become countries. It brings people together and is always a good time. If you’re coming to the World Championships to be with the mountainboard family this is the place.

    Cost: 10 Euros per person per night

Places to eat

There are many locations to eat in Novi Sad. Here are a few of our favorites and where you will most likely run into other athletes:

  • Da Mario Plus
    Breakfast and lunch restaurant close to the athlete hostel. They become overwhelmed quickly but have good food.

  • Macak Petrovaradin
    Closer to the Varad Inn hostel. Macak is a great pizza joint but everything on the menu is a good bet.

  • Cafe Modena
    A great dining experience in downtown Novi Sad. In the absolute center of town and across from the chapel this is a great location. Really good pasta, steaks, and an awesome place to meet up.

Nightlife

Again there are many places to enjoy the nightlife in Novi Sad. Most groups will go out together but you will never fail to see your fellows athletes on Laze Teleckog. Here are a few of our favorite locations:

  • Puberaj
    The location of registration and the “4 Down Project”. This bar has a great atmosphere and is a local hangout spot. Head here for a couple of drinks and a little quieter experience.

  • Shamrock Bar

  • Rakija Spirit Bar
    Well versed in Rakija (the local serbian drink) this bar has them all. Pop in to try a couple and then head on to enjoy Laze Teleckog. Warning: Don’t stay here to long, things can get blurry.

  • Lazino Tele
    Out of all the bars on Laze Teleckog this one is special. 2 floors of fun and enough room to accommodate all of the athletes it always seems to be where everyone ends up at the end of the night. If you come here beware, you may have the time of your life and win a world championship.

  • Cuba Libre
    This location is small, sweaty, and the bar you want to be at if you want to have to much of a good time. When you walk in keep an eye out for Jereme Leafe. If you find him he’ll buy you a bottle of rakija and you’ll watch the sunrise. A staple of the Serbian World Championships.
