I wish Clinton would have ridden today and relax for the slopestyle, but he gets more practice time I guess!?
The VW Best Trick Showdown competition has been cancelled today due to rain. (Thu, 13 Aug 2009 Posted at 04:00:00 PM)“The Boneyard is just not going to provide the conditions needed for our slopestyle athletes to perform at the level they want to,” says Mark Taylor, Event Director for Kokanee Crankworx. “Due to the rain the wooden features are too slick and the dirt jumps are too soft to safely pull the technical tricks and massive airs.”
In lieu of airing the VW Best Trick Showdown on Go211.com’s live webcast a live interview talk show will take place 5:30 to 7:30pm at www.crankworx.com.
The VW Best Trick winner will now be determined at the Monster Energy Slopestyle event on Saturday, August 15. All unqualified riders will be competing at 3:30pm for the rider-judged VW Best Trick as well as for their place to compete in the Slopestyle Finals. Over the entire event of qualifiers and finals the $6000 prize purse will be awarded to the rider with the over best trick deemed by their fellow competitors.
