Mandatory Coverage: Oregon Bi-Fecta

Day 1: Tigard

Though usually a three-stop tour, this year’s Trifecta was downgraded to a Bi-fecta due to the cancellation of the Lincoln City stop. It makes the most sense to blame the economy, though this is probably not actually why. The first stop took over Tigard Skatepark on August 8, 2009. Rather than naming tricks and skaters, I will just say, the skating was ridiculous and here are a bunch of pictures.

Day 2: Pier Park

It was a totally different competition at Pier Park. The 11 foot bowl is unforgiving, to say the least, so individual runs instead of a jam session, and a major advantange for those not too cool to wear pads were the story of the day. The most impressive and exciting skating was from theĀ  young guns, not just holding their own, but honestly blowing the older skaters out of the water. More people made it over the door than the last time Trifecta was at Pier, but for the most part it was a series of technical grinds, followed by Sergie Ventura going way bigger than everyone else. And like yesterday, I am too lazy to write a full story, so here’s another grip of photos.

  1. Dam your fast Brooke. Sweet pics. But yeah, to explain why it was a Bi-fecta this year is that Lincoln City required more time and higher insurance coverages and there wasn’t enough time to secure it. In a nutshell, it could have gone on without any serious consequences, and for sure next year- we go back to LC to start the annual 3 day party. Sweet pics BG!
