Matthias wins Battle at the Bricks
« on: May 29, 2011, 12:35:13 PM »
Matthias won the Battle at the Bricks contest in Indianapolis. On his blog he wrote "I’m so happy to take this one home! Very good contest organised by Alan Young and Jake Jackson with the help of Red Bull."

From what we heard the pro finals got cancelled due to rain so the top 4 are how they qualified.

1st Matthias Dandois
2nd Matt Willhelm
3rd Dane Beardsley
4th Dez Maarsen
5th Dominik Nekolny
6th Terry Adams
7th Alex Jumelin
8th Jean Buhlon

Check out the pre jam video on Ride BMX and the daily updates Matthias did.

Really good contest, and incredible riding from everybody.

The pro finals didn't get cancelled until the final battles.  The prelims narrowed it down to the top 8 for the final.  Then the top 8 did a finals run to make the top 4 for battles.  The first two battles were Me vs. Dane Beardsley and Matthias vs. Dez.  Same format as Ninja Spin I think.

Matthias edged out Dez in the battle, and I beat out Dane (he rode awesome).  It started raining for the 3rd/4th place battle so we didn't get to the final battle of me vs. Matthias. 

With rain coming down and lightning in the area the organizers made the right call and took results from the final runs as opposed to battles. 

Great contest, good times, and good turnout. 

Thanks again to Alan Young, Jake Jackson, and Red Bull for putting this on.  Thanks to all the riders who showed up, and thanks for the fat chicks riding the mechanical bull.

Matt

Even better than fat chicks riding mechanical bulls was hanging out with the infamous George Wilson and his entourage

There are a bunch of errors (mainly spelling) in those results.  I am working on it and will have full results and updated standings when I get home.

And it's mark kuhlmann not matt coburn

It wouldn't be a flatland comp without somebody having an issue with the judging. It's too subjective to ever have a fixed set of rules to judge by. I guess that's why they call it freestyle!
