I was invited by Chinese Extreme Sports Association to the China Open Street competition in Hu Zhou, a couple hours north of Shanghai.  I was asked to do a presentation on Action Sports and a talk about Judging international competitions at a technical seminar. I was pleasantly surprise to learn that Peter Smolik and Ben Hatchell were also invited to skate in the competition.  All worked out pretty well, as Ben ended up winning the contest.

Colorado has been a hot spot for skateboarding for many years. Lots of great skateparks and beautiful mountains and green trees! Thanks to Jono Schwan and the Sk8 Strong crew for bringing the World Cup Skateboarding tour to Colorado Springs for the first annual Rocky Mountain Rampage event. Team Pain built a world class skatepark here 3 years ago with hopes of one day doing  a world class event. A few weeks ago there was a grand opening for the new Vert ramp brought here from the Denver ESPN park and rebuilt by Brad from Innovative Construction Inc.
