Trampa Challenge ’12


On 6th October 2012 a seriously fun alternative comp took place at Bugs Boarding in Gloucestershire. The Trampa Challenge: a fun contest that has featured lots of different types of competitive riding over the years, and this was no different; Surely the first time ever that mountainboard riding has been combined with football & basketball! Then there was a mega-long-jump contest and general jibbology on the rails n fun boxes n shiz.

Riders including Renny Myles, Joe Dickson, Sam Nicholas, Steve Birkbeck, Mark Sewell, Jenna Collins, Emlyn Bainbridge, Ben Searle, Amon Shaw, The Bugs crew and many many more all scored goals by donking, tapping and sliding the ball into the goal, then jumped off a kicker aiming for the slam dunk, then launched themselves as far as poss to get as far down the hill as possible. It was jokes 🙂

Following the sunny comp on the saturday was the prize-giving ceremony for the 2012 ATBA-UK series: Check out the full list of winners here.

With the sun going down and the Trampa bbq lit, it was then time for the Annual ATB Junkies Film Festival. A feature film length series of short films made by riders, for riders. There were some awesome, funny, and inventive vids, and well done to all contributors for their efforts 🙂 Check out all the films at Remolition-news.

What a weekend!

Luckily for us the Rem crew were in attendance to document the action. Enjoy this awesome selection from The Dirt Monkeys & Decreate…
