Today was the day of all days. First off was the morning session. Not as early as usual. Just 6:00 am. Believe it or not that actually helped a lot to sleep in. Morning ride went smooth. Everyone throwing out hammers left and right. Next was the Liquid Force Brostock Invitaional. The rider meeting alone had me in shock. All the top pros sitting on the front of the Alliance Wake houseboat. Then the competition began. The water was rolly and rough which made the double up contest challenging. Unfortunately our two riders that were in the contest were knocked out by pure bad luck. They were put up against formidable riders that pulled there tricks perfectly. Matter of fact almost all of the usual winners were knocked out in the first two rounds. The finals were full of underdogs. Which made it fun. The winner of the 20k (the biggest purse ever for a double up contest) was Jimmy LaRiche. Congrats Jimmy. The day ended with a musical set from Chuck D of Public Enemy. Unfortunaltely Flavor Flav owns the rights to most of Public Enemy’s songs so he couldn’t perform the best songs. All in all the whole trip was a success. Besides a couple minor snafus. Brostock was off the chain and I’m glad our team made the trip out there. Can’t wait for Brostock 09!!!!!
