Trick Comp Results

Big Thanks to everyone who came out for the Trick Comp tonight. I estimate that around 70 folks showed up and 9 riders vied for the top spot.

Here's how it went down: After the first round we awarded third to Little Bob for his front wheel spin backwards circle keo thing.

here's Bob with his prizes:

2nd and 1st place came down to Mike Carney and Jesse Hilliard. If you don't know who these guys are, permit me to refresh your memory

Jesse had the better first run, but it was clear that everyone wanted to see more of these dudes, so we sent them out for another two minutes. Both had very good second runs, including Jesse once more trashing his fork and wheels, but Carney put together multiple big lines and pretty much fucking killed it to walk away with first place.

Sorry I don't have better pictures of the event, the lighting sucks in that garage. Our man Kevin was there filming it all though so we should have an edit for you real soon.

It was a great kickoff to the weekend, thank you to all who came out
