Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot the Denver stop of Journey’s Backyard BBQ with Plus Size BMX and Six Twenty 4 magazine. The Backyard BBQ is a national tour of some awesome action sports, music and fun. The day was record-breaking hot but the show was even hotter. There were sponsors galore handing out goodies, a battle of the bands and Etnies team riders getting rad in the pipe, ramps and even a giant pool. The Metal Mulisha put on quite and arial exhibition despite the heat and some strong winds. lots of water, sunscreen and fun.
The 2012 Teva Mountain Games were again held in Vail, Colorado and this year’s Slope-style event was better than ever. The features were bigger and the competitors were ready to make their mark on this stellar event. I was fortunate to have a very patient 5 yr old assistant who’s creativity was impressive as she came up with names for many of the tricks we saw.
I did notice that I was the only photographer shooting the event with a 45lb. child on their shoulders.
