The th year in The Battle for Midwest BMX officially kicked off in Fort Wayne, Indiana at The Fort Wayne Indoor BMX & Skatepark sponsored by Wonder Wheels BMX &  Summit City Bicycles.  The weekend started off on Friday night with a practice session to help get some of the new folks used to the unique layout inside the Fort Wayne Indoor.

The day began  with a 2.5 hour practice session, Alec Rutherford was attempting to win practice but we never actually judged practice!  After practice ended we  moved straight into the contest.  Beginners were up 1st and the butterflies were tearing up everyone’s stomach for sure.  Once we got the butterflies out, Ethan Webb ended up taking the victory with various 1 footed moves and a few Steve Questa inspired wall rides was enough to take the top spot. Congrats to all the beginners who stepped up and participated in the Battle Contest!

The 2015 Kitchen Skatepark Pro/Am – Saturday Coverage of Beginner / Pro Class & Shaun Doss

Brett Banasiewicz

The 4th Annual Kitchen Pro Am got under way on March 21, 2015.  Saturdays events included the Beginner Class, a WCMX demonstration by Shaun Doss, and the highly anticipated PRO Class.  This year was a touch different for the PRO Class as there was no advertised Pro Purse, also this year would be the 1st year for Brett Banasiewicz to ever compete in his hometown contest.  In the years prior, Brett chose not to compete, but to open the doors to his home park for others to use his playground as they see fit.  2013, and 2014 saw Brett’s fight for recovery and the support for the annual contest industry wide was strong.  This year, nearly 2 1/2  years after his horrific accident is the year that Brett would make his comeback to professional competition.
