Brad McClain wins the Hastings Battle!

The event was UNBELIEVABLE !!  I honestly don't know how it could have gone any better. The city is still buzzing and will be for some time to come.  It absolutely went off without a hitch. The skating was unreal, the weather was perfect, the crowd was huge, Renee Renee returned to emcee for the first time since the bowl jam at Slam 05 and best of all - NOBODY GOT HURT.

There was story lines throughout the day too. Especially the hometown love everybody showed McCrank and Sluggo. Standing ovations for both. Or the fact that a sponsorless 18 yr old local named James Clarke beat out a long list of heavies to take 3rd.

We started right at 1pm and wrapped up at 6pm on the dot.   We ran 5 qualifying heats of 5 skaters. Everyone got 4 runs and a score out of 100. First wall rebate rule was in effect.

There were 5 judges.  Each judge added up their 4 run scores per rider and came up with an average. From there high and low were thrown out to give us a top 10 final.

Each skater again received 4 runs each in the finals. On their final run, we were more than generous with rebates as there were people pulling out insane tricks that simply had to be landed!

Congratulations to all of the top skaters at the 2nd annual Rocky Mountain Rampage in Colorado Springs!RMR13

A few years back the Team Pain crew built a huge world class skatepark here, and last year The Sk8 Strong crew helped to coordinate a massive vert ramp and mini. The fresh air at 6,000 feet and the green trees with the Rocky Mountains in the back drop make this a beautiful setting for a great World Cup event!
