The Backyard Bang Rail Jam has hit the road, and the mile-high city was the destination. The Denver snow scene was treated to a circus of Salomon activity. The team was in there — signing autographs, making fun of things, and looking dirty. A DJ hurt the ears of little kids and parents alike, and food and beverages were available for the hungry.
The event had attracted enough potential riders to overbook any kind of list. This resulted in nervous riders hoping to get their chance to twist and press for some Skull Candy head phones. Eventually the jam got underway, while a beautiful Denver day kept everyone warm. (Take that Portland!)
Forrest Bailey pulled out the $2000 win in a move that might just prove he’s this year’s rail jam kid,Â Two years ago it was Lucas Magoon that had the right moves, last year it was Jed Anderson, and I feel good when I say, welcome to the big leagues Forrest. Next year you should have all sorts of fans.
In the end, things shaped up like this:
1. Forest Bailey
2. Eric Van Assche
3. Derek Summering
1. Claire Hewitt DeMeyer
2. Melissa Kelly
3. Izzy LaLive
