“All I wanted to do was make it all the way through, do what I was doing in practice, go fast and finish really strong with a big move in the end.” – Ryan Decenzo 1st Place Qualifier
“I can’t believe how gnarly everyone got on the course today. Guys were doing tricks that I hadn’t seen thrown in practice all week. When you get your adrenaline running during a contest like this, you forget about what trick you want to pull, so you just go for the harder one and land it – which makes it worth it.” – Ryan Sheckler Event creator and 2nd-place finisher
