Monster Energy WPTC – BSR – Results

WPTC_2014Saturday marked the final day of the fifth year of the Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown and it was one of the wildest finishes in the series’ history. With both Graeme Burress and Tom Fooshee failing to make it past the quarterfinals, the overall title was open for the taking. This also meant that for the first time in the Monster Energy WPTC Tom Fooshee would not be on top of the overall title podium.

Going into the event Aaron Gunn was in prime position to take the overall title. According to the mathematicians he only need to finish 3rd or better to take the overall title. What the math folks failed to realize though was just how close Chandler Powell was, as well. Aaron Gunn did manage to take 3rd in the Men’s Pro Features event, but Chandler got first. The 100 points for first gave him just enough of an edge over Gunn to get the overall title. Had Chandler gotten 2nd he would not have surpassed Gunn. Had Gunn gotten 2nd instead of 1st, he would have had enough points to be the overall champ. Needless to say, it was an incredible finish at what is by far one of the best wake park facilities in the world.

The action throughout the day for the semifinal and final rounds of the WPTC at BSR was incredible and featured progressive riding from all across the board. Despite a little rain in the morning, the action was on fire – and as the sun came out and the day got warmer, the riding only got better and better. From the Open Women’s division that features two of the tiniest, friendliest, and fearless competitors: Hollie Waldrop (11) and Kaitlyn Adams (10), to the progressive riding of Open Men’s that is right on the heels of the Pros’, to the largest group of riders ever in Pro Women’s Features; the riding across the board throughout the day was top notch.

Congratulations to all the winners and to the WPTC for another incredible year of cable park riding. Thanks to BSR for hosting one of the best events in the history of the WPTC and to sponsors Monster Energy and Liquid Force for making the series possible.
