The first ever Root Rhythm and Rails event went down over this past weekend at Mountain High in The Wedge. The course allowed the competitor to choose between 2 different lines made up of fun features, giving each competitor the option on what feature to hit and which line to take.  In the end it was Nick Guin taken top honors in the Men’s Open Division with his smooth style and technical tricks. Coming in second place was Jacob Nelson followed by a close third place finish from Zack Foster.
