– Best Front & Back Wheel Combo: Bill Nitschke ($120 & Shadow/Subrosa Merch)

Honorable Mentions go to Scott Weaver, Mitchell Hall, Chris Babin, Teak Gabriel & Michael Alvarez for putting in amazing runs of highly original & very difficult trick combinations.
Special Thanks to Matt Coplon, MC Kip Williamson, our judges Chad DeGroot, Marcos Paulo DeJesus along with special guest judge & DJ Mark Eaton aka Lungmustard of the legendary Plywood Hoods for making our third jam the best one so far!
