The second tour stop of the MegaRamp tour series is quickly showing that this event will be here to stay. For a long, long time.
Practice for the event began on the first of July. Although the athletes didn't hold anything back. Day 1 of practice played host to Mitchie Brusco becoming only the second person ever (and youngest by far) to land a 900 on the mega. Tony Hawk tweeted immediately after "Congratulations to Mitchie Brusco with the cleanest 900 to date ... on a MegaRamp"
Needless to say the actual competition didn't dissapoint either. Each athlete laid down clean run after clear run. Adam Taylor stoked out fans with a 540 varial on the quarterpipe which vaulted him into 3rd place. Mtichie Brusco didn't skip a beat from practice and laid down yet another 900, just as clean as the first, which put him on the podium narrowly in front of Adam with a 2nd place finish. In the end it was Brazilian native Bob Burnquist who impressed the judges the most with a huge christ air backflip over the gap earning him 1st overall.
