On Saturday we ventured out to Breckenridge to check out the Throwback Throwdown halfpipe competition. Erika Vikander was competing... wait, did you say Erika was competing in a halfpipe competition? Yes. Erika doesn't normally do halfpipe comps... she's a slopestyle gal. But how can you pass up an opportunity to have a lot of fun slaying it in an old-school hand-shaped halfpipe with the likes of Danny Davis and Luke Mitrani?
Anyway, so we get out there just in time for the guys to be seshing the handmade pipe as a warm-up. The first portion of the comp was spent in a full-size competition pipe but the second part of the day was a 30-minute jam-style session to see who would move on to the finals. The women got a little bit of a break since there was only 6 competing and they just did 1 30-minute session to decide the winner. Overall results are below.
1. Rebecca Sinclair
2. Sylvia Mittermueller
3. Ariel Gold
1. Zach Black
2. Dom Harrington
3. Taylor Gold
Of course a good day in Breckenridge always requires Happy Hour tacos and pitchers at Mi Casa. All in all a great day. Check out all the pics from the comp below.
