Melissa Ruebl and the homegirls put on a couple of rad ‘all girls’ events this year and dubbed it the Femme Fatale Series.  If you missed out or just want a refresher of all the shredding that went down, check out this link.  Thanks for the good times, Melissa.  Already looking forward to next years event!

MWR alumni BobE and PJ spent the evening at Buck Hill in Burnsville, MN to get their shred on in the man-made snow crystals.  Creeping it real on record length magic carpets is what it’s all about!

Yeah, doggie!

Keeping in line with their other events, Summit went all out with their 2nd Maui Wowie Backyard Rail Jam. The setup consisted of a flat down box from Red Bull, a sick 30 ft down rail and a 20 ft down rail with a donkey dicker kicker on the end!  With 60 of the area’s heavy hitters on deck, some hammers were dropped and fun was had by all.  Riders were judged on style, trick variety, and consistency (making it all the way through the rail).  It was a nail biter as all of the competitors were throwing down.  In the end it was Viktor Simco, Josh Tramby and MWR’s own Ryan Paul duking it out for bragging rights and $1000 in cold hard cash!

Here’s how things shook out…

1. Ryan Paul

2. Josh Tramby

3. Viktor Simco

Here are some shots of the top three riders…stay tuned for more in the next day or two!  

All of us at MWR are stoked for RP and the rest of you who participated.  Also, thanks to Summit and friends for throwing a great event – already looking forward to next years event!
