Recap – The Ricardo Laguna Pro Dirt Challenge in Lake Havasu, AZ Oct. 27, 2012
I’ve never been to a city where the community came together so quickly
and easily to make an event possible, but that’s how things are in
Lake Havasu, AZ. This past weekend, countless people and organizations
donated their time and resources 100% pro bono, united towards the
goal of raising money for Tinnell Memorial Sports Park – a skate & BMX
park to be built in honor of Patrick Tinnell, a BMXer and member of
the armed forces who lost his life serving our country.
On Oct. 27, at Sara Park Rodeo Grounds in Lake Havasu, spectators had
the chance to not only support the building of the new sports park,
but to participate in raffles, enjoy delicious food and drinks, check
out local vendors and listen to music while watching the dirt
competition, announced in style by industry veteran Fat Tony.
Riders from as far as Hungary came to town to compete in Pro and
Amateur contests. One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen – a dad,
Slayer (Casey Joyce) competing in the Pro comp following his son
Colin’s appearance in the Amateur comp. I love seeing the next chapter
unfold, like any traditional sport where the dad dreams of playing
baseball or basketball along with his son. To put the icing on the
cake, to have kids come up to me and say they want to continue riding
after being a part of this event and trying to keep dirt alive – one
of the many reasons why I continue to do this.
During the pro contest, a Cindarella story happened with Dustin Grice
who got first place after qualifying last place, Colton Satterfield
showed us that you can do the craziest trick no matter where you are.
Josh Hult clearly wasn’t tired after driving over 14 hours to make the
contest, showcasing double tail whips both directions and opposite
back flips on the same run. Hungary’s finest Danny Josa showed us both
style and big tricks all while riding brakeless. Hometown riders Mat
Olsen and Sam Stebila made finals with their own style of riding. I
was glad to see AJ Anaya in finals with classic superman seat grabs,
to corked out 720s and plenty more of his original tricks. One
competitor that I really admire is Ben Voyles, who I just found out
has been fighting through injuries plus cancer twice in the past 2
years. He threw down a textbook back flip bar spin to a tuck no hander
to a 360 tuck and winding down his run with the biggest flip whip of
the night. He’s a true inspiration with his 2nd place finish that
anything is possible no matter what life throws your way. I met Jake
Levia when he came to my house, and when he did a backflip 180 over a
spine, I knew this kid was serious. He came with unique tricks that
were more than enough reason why he was in finals. When Victor Salazar
was riding in practice, he destroyed the course with flawless runs,
but after crashing and getting shaken up during the contest, couldn’t
quite put it together, but still was a crowd pleaser.
With such great feedback and great support from the Tinnell Memorial
Sports Park Committee and the city of Lake Havasu, we were able to
raise over $15,000 for the Patrick Tinnell Memorial Skate Park. This
is a huge step towards completing a venue for the kids to encourage
their participation in sports, teach them positive values along with
bike safety, and keep them away from drugs.
After seeing a great success with this event, I’m excited to announce
the Ricardo Laguna Pro Dirt Series – a 3 stop contest that will happen
in 2013. The series begins with Extreme Thing on March 30, 2013 in Las
Vegas, followed by another stop TBA and ending with the finals in Lake
Havasu in Nov. 2013.
I can’t say thanks enough to everyone who came out and donated their
time, resources and energy to make this event possible. Much thanks to
sponsors DK Bicycles, TSG, Deco, Freegun Underwear, Hoffman Bikes,
Sidewall Distribution, Mudshark Brewery, Profile Racing, Break Lube,
It’s a 10 Haircare, KNYEW, Woodward, Scion, DAK, Campbell Family and
all of the resident of the city of Lake Havasu, AZ!
