Mtn. Slopestyle…..Go Pro takes over the Vail Mtn. Games

This summer Go Pro took over the Vail Mtn. Games and the result was an unbelievable show of skill, excitement, and adrenaline as well as some serious bumps and bruises. The event fell a week after the Outlaws of Dirt comp in Lyons, Colorado and many riders had their tricks dialed in. It was a very full day with wind, rain, dust and sun.

A highlight of the slopestyle contest had to be the “Open Loop”, with its high-risk-high-reward, the loop was a question mark for the competitors and judges alike.  A few brave souls attempted the daunting feature through practice rounds and qualifying and even fewer used the feature in their final rounds. Others opted to get creative with lines and some huge, crowd pleasing, transfers were put down.

Riders and fans all seemed pleased with the course and layout and, with the introduction of the “loop”, the bar was definitely raised. Now it’s only a matter of time before these guys begin to “trick” it!
