In a stunning â€œcome from behindâ€ scenario, PLG went from last place to first place in his final run of the day at the AST Dew Tour in Salt Lake City this past weekend. Lasek placed 2nd and White finished in 3rd. This victory launched PLG into 2nd place overall in points just ahead of Burnquist and Lasek, and although White still has the lead, PLG is right behind. This was PLGâ€™s forth contest win in a row. Besides the usual Dew Tour loot, PLG also won Utahâ€™s â€œState Of Sportâ€ award for come-back win, which was only awarded to one athlete of the entire tour stop. Later that night, PLG promptly got kicked off the plane, for wanting to carry his skateboard on the flight. Congratulations PLG.
The November issue of Thrasher just arrived on my desk and it is packed full of Osiris riders. Diego is fronside flipping with a 6-page interview and Toy Machine add while Corey is welcomed to the Venture Truck Co. team as well as the CCS mailorder team. Garrett's frist pro ad for Zero is in the issue as well. Be sure to check out his first part since turning pro in our new video "Feed the Need" which will be out in Decemeber. Gailea has a nice switch crook as a photo feature, and if you would like to win some John Rattray items, check out the Thrasher site for a web exclusive interview and a chance to win his pro-model shoe "The Scot."
