The 1st etnies Canadian concrete jam of the year was our best and biggest one to date. The largest Am class, the largest and heaviest Pro class and the youngest rippers threw down at this North Vancouver park on Sunday the 22nd.
The top 5 for Am was probably the hardest to judge due to the number of entries and the sheer magnitude of talent, but the judges did their jobs well (the judges included Pro riders Sam Lowe and James Steele) and narrowed it down to the top 5:
5th dustin dobson
4th kyle spence
3rd dillon king
2nd dave struthers (ride on!)
1st carl arnett
The 13 and under class was amazing with Anthony Messere riding as good as any of the top 5 Ams, and at only 12 years old! Way to go anthony!
The Pro class was stacked and was the hardest Pro class to judge yet. 8 foot high 540's (shirtless!), huge flairs and tailwhips, over the fence to pallet action, and brakeless-chainless 720 over the spine attempts, had the spectators and riders alike going nuts watching the shredding. we were blessed to have Jason Enns on hand to be a judge for this class, and the standings went down like this for the money at Kirkstone:
3rd was 3 way tie between:
2nd travis sexsmith
1st wade lajlar (etnies)
Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we couldn't run the over 30 masters class at Kirkstone... we apologize to the guys who entered, and thank them for coming out and riding their asses off regardless.
Thanks to everyone who came out to enter, ride, spectate, or just hang out. See you at Richmond july 20th! Check out:
