When Mountain High put together its new pro team, it was all about having a crew that would be invested in spending time at the mountain and engaging the local riders. As part of this effort, Mountain High has introduced three signature events hosted by their new team riders. The first of the three dubbed “Ditch Day” was hosted by Kyle Lopiccolo and Harrison Gordon and took place Saturday, December 17th. “What a great weekend of riding, hanging out, and having a good time at Mountain High,” says Mountain High marketing consultant, Brad Farmer. “Kyle and Harrison did a great job hosting their first event and all of their sponsors and teammates came out in full force.”
With $750 in cash plus thousands in prizes on the line, some of SoCal’s best rail riders turned out to through down. Harrison Gordon’s Salomon/Bonfire teammates along with Kyle Lopiccolo’s Bataleon team helped support and judge the event. With DJ Jokzilla of Fat Beats LA spinning and pro rider, Scotty Arnold and Salomon team manager, Java Fernandez on the MC duties, the stage was set for an epic day of shredding in SoCal.
The smooth setup included a forty foot flat-up-flat box, a 20 foot street-style down rail, and 40 forty foot down-flat-down rail which all lead into the “Hell Gap,” a banked box linking two 12 foot quarterpipes and the “Spool of Death.” Garret Warnick’s gap 270 on the Down-Flat-Down and his toe-side spins over the “Spool of Death” were crowd favorites as well as Jeremy Estorga’s all-around smooth riding and Erik Leon’s nose press through the down-flat-down and combo’s into the “Hell Gap.”
Special thanks goes out to Monster Energy Drink, Salomon, Bonfire, Ashbury, Neff, Bataleon and Von Zipper for helping support the event in a big way.
