The Slug Roundup brought to you by RedBull, Brighton Resort, KAB rails was graced with warm 12-degree temperatures and beeeeeautiful whiteout weather. That’s right shredders, white out conditions. Despite the small hold back the riders poured in from all corners of the US to prove that they had the style and the bag tricks to take down the cash prize of 2,000 pesos and a pair of sticks. The Brighton crew was on point maintaining the features, giving all the contestants the opportunity to huck carcass and get jibby. The infamous Bertha was in the house with the homies throwing down backside 7 and cab frontside 5’s being some of the stand out tricks with style. The riders then had the option of hitting the down flat box or 40-foot tabletop. Dallin picked the road less chosen and threw down a gap 270 on the flat down box, so Gangster. A slip out lay back and a jean pant nose slide went down on the long wide Blindside box for the crowd’s enjoyment. Now that takes balls to show up in those conditions in jeans, who you trying to fool, I know you wish you had your one piece bangin. The circus and kicker box were next in line were Brighton's own Nick Binks held down the jib scene in this section proving that kids in tight purple pants can get down with the gun totin baggy pant G’s. Last but not least the Ogio Euro gap box, where one kid proceeded to front flip off all Travis Rice style. Congrats to the winners and keep trying to the losers. Thanks you’s to all the sponsors and riders for participating.
