SLUG Games: Fury Road Presented By Monster Energy has ended, and another happy crowd was served with a great day of shredding, sliding and hucking at Brighton. It all went down at the base of Milly, where the theme “Fury Road” was realized. The riders embraced this theme and took to the obstacles without fear, charging rails and jumps with speed and reckless abandon.
Despite snow in the forecast, the day started out as sunny and bright as could be. Although everyone was stoked and hoped that the perfect conditions would last, the snow did come. With it came the wind, blowing flurries in every direction, which made visibility a little tough at times. Undeterred, riders of all ages made the hike time after time to throw out their best.
SLUG Games: Fury Road Presented By Monster Energy was full of excitement, thanks to everyone who made the event possible. DJ Finale kept everyone motivated, spinning tracks from Minor Threat, De La Soul and more, while all the sponsors (of which there were many who make this event possible) did their part to distract everyone from the cold, handing out energy drinks and other gear.
With divisions for Men and Women 17 & Under 17 and an Open division for those over 17, it is a great event for anyone, and there are definitely plenty of opportunities to place and win something. Super young riders weren’t intimidated by the course, even if it meant doing a few cartwheels on the way down on ill-fated attempts at placing. Things really got going with the Men’s and Women’s Open ski and board, where riders pulled out all the stops to impress the judges and crowd. The course was well thought-out, with obstacles ranging from boxes to bars, and kickers that allowed riders to transfer over or on to parallel elements.
In the end, no one was let down by the amount of talent that was there. So many tricks went down to be hyped on that should keep people stoked for another year.
