Ethan Fisher rode in the 9 boys 20 inch and missed the semi-finals but will be better prepare for the next event.
Aaron Miller competed in the 15 boys 20 inch and rode up a division in the 17-24 men’s division on his cruiser and was extremely unlucky not to make the finals in both but was injured in a gate malfunction in his 20-inch semi-final and could not finish the rest of his races.
