had an emo fan in convulsions from what I can tell. Band 2 rocked the green hair dye and were punk rock all the way.
The pro class hit the park and Psykopath Industries rider Omar "Endo" Romero and Bay Area rider Ronnie Michelini both tried front flips on the box. Both riders went home with bruises. Pro class winner Matthias Weldon had lines all over the park and threw in tons of tricks to take first place. Second place rider Kevin Friskel hails from Tennesee and showed us a pretty extended super whip in best trick. Ronnie Michelini tailwhipped most of the quarters , threw down some no footed cans and then later on trashed my hotel room.
If you are ever near Reno be sure to check this park out. They have a skate/bike store , games area , lockers and a rather unique park layout. Openground is looking to have more competitions in the future so keep an eye out on Fatbmx calendar.
Get well soon to Matthias's friend Brennan who crashed really hard and hurt himself trying a huge quarter to flatbank transfer.
