Small town rail jams offer a mixed bag of possibilities. Small features, unknown riders, and the most random collection of spectators make for an interesting day. Travis Kennedy, Andrew Brewer, Jake Devine, and Johnny Lazz were on hand to sign autographs for the 1,000+ in attendance. At least 25% of the people on hand were sandal-clad transients that just happened to wonder upon a pile of snow in their predominately hippie city. The riders happily signed posters for a slew of people, more than half of which didn’t even know who the hell they were. Kids were happy to meet a professional athlete, the pros were stoked to make the kids smile, and the locals were happy to share any type of natural “stimulant” you would expect to find in Humbolt County.
Pro Sport Center knows how to put on a contest. The event was being broadcast live over the radio, a DJ was pumping dub step, a huge grill was serving up tasty treats, and the people were stoked to be there. I could go on and on about the contest, but that’s not where the story is. The real story is in the people that were there and only the photos can paint the picture of what happened that day.
Meanwhile, on the East Coast, similarly absurd situations were unfolding from CT to VT and beyond…
