Author: John Scarth

Teen Wolf was spotted at the third annual Quiksilver Showdown over the City on Grouse Mountain. With $20,000 on the line Scott "Teen Wolf"Howard threw his name in the hat but his skills just couldn't cut it.

Scott Howard AKA Teen Wolf and Chris Rasman.

At days end it was Eric Willett who took the win with Jeremy Cloutier in second and Robby Ballharry taking third.

Grouse park staff Shayan Aghourlikhan went from the am qualifiers all the way to the finals with solid runs all day.

Quik's own Chris Rasman on the last jump.

Logan Haubrich BS 5 on the second to last jump.

Robby Ballharry was one of the many competitors that flew in for the event. His travels paid off and he took home $2000 for his troubles. His run included a Front Board on the down rail to 50-50 Back 3 off the pipe,  50-50 on the up rail to Cab 9 on the first jump and then Backside 7 on the last jump.

Coming off a win at last weeks Showcase Showdown Darcy Sharpe had solid runs but he was unable to make finals.

The new location of this years course allowed for a beer garden next to the final jump. I tried desperately to find an angle from there but it just didn't work.

Jeremy Cloutier took second with a run that included Front 1 Halfcab out on the down bar to 50-50 Frontside 3 on the pipe to 50-50 on the up rail into Frontside 9 and Switch Backside 9 on the jumps.

Quiksilver pro Eric Willett came to town and like many other contests this season he ended up on the podium. His winning run was Front Blunt 270 out on the down bar into boardslide 270 on the pipe followed by 50-50 Backside 1 out on the up rail and then Switch Backside 9 and Frontside 1080 on the jumps.

While he didn't make the podium Zach Stone still took best trick with a Backside 1080.
