With the strong wind all week long the vert competition at the FISE did not look very promising. On top of that there was a little drizzle going on in the morning for a few minutes and everyone knows that storm, the Red Bull ramp and bike riding don't go very well together. It cleared up though and it even got sunny. The wind wasn't too bad but the ramp was still very slick. A quick fix with some special water didn't help very much but it didn't hinder the riders from starting off the vert comp.
There were actually quite a few riders that climbed on top of the ramp but where was Ronnie Surridge? He must have been meeting up with his myspace chicks or something at the time Sebastian Keep, Jon Taylor, Jan Valenta, Matt Fairbairn, Tim Eichert, Jean-Marie Baertsch, Sven Kabusch, Dan Lacey and a few other brave guys started off with the comp.

DK wants to officially welcome Nina Buitrago to our pro team. We have come to know Nina over the years, her having done shows with the stunt team and feel she is a perfect fit here. Nina has the ability to shred and even more ability to inspire. We are incredibly excited to have Nina on DK. Teammate Brian Kachinsky says it best: "Nina has amazed me over the years. Being the first girl to do a handrail as well as a long-time Chenga local, we've all seen that Nina has skills no matter what she chooses to ride. Between traveling, riding, and reading her 'zine I've been privileged to call her a friend but its truly an honor to now be able to call her my teammate. Welcome to DK Nina!"
