Block off your calendars for next year- this event was epic! Mike Girard (Emgee Events) threw together an world-class freeride down one of the gnarliest roads on the East Coast.
This weekend was very different than what you typically get at a race- no one was stressed about race heats or bummed about getting knocked out early. People who were rightfully terrified of the run could take it at their own pace in the back, while guys like Norm Plante and Scott Hurdleston f**kin mobbed (see raw runs on YouTube). I personally was stoked by the number of guys on Valkyrie adjustable bases and our upcoming Voxter completes; Burke is a serious test for your own skating ability as well as your gear, and our lineup stood up to the challenge.
Keep your eyes out for more media from this event- Mike's goal is to build this up even bigger next year because this is what the sport needs. In the meantime, peep these raw runs that Evan filmed/edited:
