Battle in the Rockies Video Invitational Rider List Announced!
« Reply #7 on: August 12, 2014, 04:17:01 PM »

This morning we have some exciting news about the video contest for Round 4 in the AM Flatland Circuit - The Battle in the Rockies! 

The Battle in the Rockies video contest is a chance for 2 international riders to win free airfare to the Battle in the Rockies contest being held in Colorado Springs Co, USA, Nov 15-16.


As always it is super difficult to pick a list that will make everyone happy, we tried to go for a list of riders that have put together great video parts within the last year or two. Or that also have brought a progressive style to the contest scene and placed well when they have entered in the last few years. We hope this makes this video contest, a tough contest to win the flights.


The rules are very simple each rider has one month to make a 1 minute video that is unedited. The goal is to have an epic link or set of tricks hit back to back. We want to hear the natural sounds of riding and the thrill of hitting your goal, so we ask no music either. The rules will be strict, you have only 1 minute, any videos over a minute will not be used. There is no penalty for being under, but no one can go over. All videos will be posted on the Battle in the Rockies page (link), web site and Flatmatters Online. On Sept 10, 2014 all videos will be put together and judged. Judging will be handled by James McGraw and Effraim Catlow. There will also be an online vote that will allow everyone a chance to cast a vote for who they think was the best. All votes will be considered and counted. The top two videos will win free air fare to the Battle in the Rockies.


We are happy to announce that the Battle in the Rockies is flying the current world champion Dominik Nekolny in to compete in the Battle in the Rockies.


Riders invited to the 1 minute Video Contest for a Free flight to the Battle of Rockies are:


Alexis Desolneux,
Shintaro Misawa,
Pete Olsen,
Sam Foakes,
James White,
Viki Gomez,
Yohei Uchino,
Adam Kun,
Dez Maarsen,
Mateus Beckmann,
Sebastian Grubinger,
Jean William “Dub” Prevost,
Akihiko Takahashi
Alberto Moya,
Thomas Noyer,
Matthieu Bonnecuelle,
Moto Sasaki,
Hiroya Morizaki.

Laszlo Tivadar, Sebastian Grubinger and Simon O'Brien - BITR Entries
« Reply #10 on: September 09, 2014, 05:24:32 PM »

We have a surprise entry from Laszlo here with a nice story behind it - Adam Kun was expected to post an entry video, but gave his opportunity to his friend Laszlo, as he's able to make the contest with the help of his sponsor, Monster.

Laszlo drops an incredibly tough trick here that's certainly taken time to hit!

Additionally, legend Simon O'Brien also has an incredible entry up which you will want to watch and rewind! (link)

Finally, we have a super entry from Sebastian Grubinger right here (link).
Lots of buzz around the Battle In The Rockies contest right now - we will keep you updated!
