The 4th stop on this years Monster Army Recon Tour was held in South Bend, Indiana at the one and only Brett Banasiewicz’s skatepark. The mood was right and the weather cooperated by not turning The Kitchen into an oven as it would be on most Augusts weekends in the mid-west. The day began with a short drive up with Joey Marks (aka Whitesnake), Joey was asked to help judge this contest along with Kris Fox, and Ohio Dreams winner Trent Newkirk.
We pulled up to the park and was greeted by a mob of CC BMX supporters, there to cheer rookie Clayton Fetters who made his contest debut here. We strolled into the park and ran greeted all the event crew, went over the day’s schedule and around noon we had a riders meeting and rolled out the carpet for the 13-15 class. The action on the course stayed strong and heavy all afternoon. We saw all kinds of familiar faces, one in particular is that of one Dalton Edwards. Dalton took a serious fall at one of our Battle Contests last year at the Kitchen and was hospitalized for a week in South Bend. It was awesome to see Dalton back on the horse and even getting a podium to boot!
Highlights this weekend include names like, 13 Year Old Hannah Roberts (the ONLY Girl in the mix) Isiah Potter, Johnathan King, Eddie Rovi, Nico Vanderheyden, & Brad Thomas and they all killed it!
