Ray's Odd Couple contest

Just got back from Ray's MTB park in Cleveland Ohio, this place is awesome! Me, Phil, Dennis Enarson, and Steve Woodward flew out here for the Odd Couple contest. The idea of the contest is that a mtb guy will team up with a BMX pro and a filmer and each team would film a 3 minute video all inside at Rays. We each had two days to do this and then a day to edit the videos, and then they were played on the big screen at the park and the judging would be by crowd applause. My teammate was the newest addition to the Haro BMX team Steve Woodward, and he kills it. We both had a bunch of unique stuff in our videos that no one else did, so that was cool. We had a really good time filming and riding together, and I hope we can do some more joint trips soon. Phil and Dennis also rode really well, those guys are both amazing riders. While neither of our teams made top three, we still came away from the contest with great videos that will be up on the site in the next couple days. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we flew into Cleveland in the middle of a blizzard, there was a couple of feet of snow on the ground already, and t was cold and nasty the whole time... luckily we were riding indoors. The other photos are to give you an idea of how sweet Ray's park is, and then a photo afterwards with the money that our teams got for the contest, Ray always pays out in 1 dollar bills!!!
