AT's Showdown went down at the Cow Palace a little over a week ago! It was nothing but good times and I ended up taking home 8th!
Brendan Howey, Mike Zinger, and I made our way up to San Francisco on Saturday morning for the third annual AT's Showdown at the Cow Palace! Upon arrival, the course looked big, but awesome, and we quickly got to riding! The course didn't take long to get dialed, as it was built so well, and practice turned into a big jam. Qualifiers started up, making things a bit more competitive, but the jam format took off a lot of pressure. Anxiety grew as always once qualifiers ended, and the top 32 were announced and sent to the top. There was much uncertainty as to what would happen in finals, as this "head to head" dual-slalom type format had never been done before in slopestyle.
