The Monster Shred Show kicked off day 3 with the 5 Star TTR slopestyle event. $25,000 dollars was given away on an intimidating course that forced riders to earn every penny.
Despite the fog and weather changes, riders charged the monstrous features throwing caution to the wind and laying down some serious top to bottom runs.
A best of three run format made gave riders enough time to get it right, and when the fog lifted the top three panned out like this.
3rd: Logan Haubrich $4000 – He had his phone cut off this morning, his credit card is maxed, and he’s just missed the money in contests all winter long. Perfect back-to-back 9’s helped get his phone back on today.
2nd: Ian Thorley $6000 – One run is all it took to just edge out Logan for the second place cash. Smooth runs with epic style, Ian Thorley got his talent paid today.
1st: Antoine Truchon $15,000 – Attacked the course with reckless abandon. Tucking into a massive back 10 double on the final jump was the clincher for Antoine, a well deserved win for a kid who’s been riding well all week.
The middle of the course was home to the cigars and Fidel himself would of been proud of those badboys. Mikey Ciccarelli is a little to young to smoke but at the Shred Show things are a little more loose.
While it wasn't Jason Dubois' day he certainly didn't phone it in. Calm and collected on the final hit.
With his win secured Logan can now turn his phone back on and let the people know that lunch is a go for tomorrow.
The visibility was amazing.
Ian Thorley and one of the hits that made him $6000 richer.
Antoine Truchon victory lap method. With his 2nd place on Saturday night he's leaving the Shred Show with $21,000. Hit him up on Facebook ladies.
Best part of contests are the podium shots and this one is spot on. L-R Logan Haubrich, Antoine Truchon and Ian Thorley.
