I just got home from an awesome weekend up in Bend, Oregon and thought it was time for another update. Jamie Goldman had his annual "Upside Down and Under Ground" invitational and I drove up Friday morning with my brother. Once we got there we started riding and the course was super fun. Not too small, not too big, flowy, super trickable, and safely built. The vibe was mellow, as most contests that are put on by riders usually are. It was a three run format, with the best run counting. It was a pretty long course so there was lots to be tricked. My first run was a super-can on the first jump, tailwhip on the second, opposite tailwhip on the third, one-foot table on the hip, tuck no hander on the long and low, flip table on the next jump, and a 360 downside tailwhip on the last. I was stoked that I got a good run in the bag right off the bat but I wanted to make it better in the next two. I tried to double tailwhip the second jump in my next two runs and crashed on the first attempt and landed the second one but failed to keep goin. Everyone else was throwin down some solid runs, especially my brother and Mitch Chubey. Chubey ended up taking the win with my brother in 2nd and I was behind him in 3rd. Super stoked for Mitch as he's been working ridiculously hard over the past few years and it was good to see it pay off. 4th place went to 15 year old grom Anthony Messere. The kid kills it. He also won best trick the day before with a flip double whip. You'll be hearing his name a lot in the future for sure. Sam Dueck got 5th and had some solid runs as well.
