Brian Hunt wanted to re-do Rye Airfield and make it more like a Super-Park. A crew worked for weeks on fixing and changing the course to suit bikes better, it worked. Almost everything was bowled in or fast as hell. They added a massive curved wall on the back of the vert ramp, made some turkey tail thing and flowed amazingly next to the deck spine, and brought back the box jump to box jump style course. Mr. Hunt killed it as usual and did the best trick of the comp, a fufanu on the massive vert wall, congrats.
Tony Cardona showed up and was training his feet to be more like his hands. Not sure why, but he also was sharpening his pinky toenail so it was like a weapon. Don’t get into a footsy fight with him or he will scratch you BAD. Someone thought it would be funny to spray paint everyone’s bikes the night before the comp, and Tony’s feet too. Before that his feet were green, black is way better color. Good luck on your training….
