MIND… BLOWN – That pretty much sums up everyone’s reaction to the level of riding at the Teva Best Trick Contest during the Claymore Challenge
The casual one-hour jam session quickly turned into a non-stop banger throwdown with guys pulling massive front flip variations, huge supermans, triple tailwhips and pretty much every other known trick in the book. It was all high fives and smiles as the best guys in slopestyle fed off one another during one of the most fun hours of the week.
At the end of the session it was Yannick Granieri who took home the win and a cool $1,000 courtesy of Teva for his perfect flip-double-whip on the Red Bull Freebird jump. Cam McCaul said it was "bolts" to describe how perfectly Yannick landed the trick.
Local boys Mike Kent and Chad Deluca threw down hard, giving the crowd exactly what they came for with big ‘ol supermans and 360 flip attempts, prompting the crowd to get loud and get wild.
The fun continues on Saturday when this year's 18 finalists compete in the main event, live at Highland Mountain, and around the world at www.redbull.com/bike, at 2:00pm EST.
