Recon Tour Final Report from Krause Family Skatepark
Round Three Finals is a Wrap for Summer Recon Tour BMX Contest Series San Diego, CA (October 8, 2012): The Recon Tour presented by Monster Army wrapped up on Saturday at the Krause Family Skatepark / Mission Valley YMCA in San Diego, CA. The Clairemont park was packed drawing over 110 entrees from Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California as well as hundreds of friends and family who all made it out for the finals. Ross Lanier again showed he was the one to beat as he dominated the park taking home both the round 3 win and overall title in the Open / Pro division collecting $1,500 for his efforts. Woodward locals Jake Leiva and Sebastian Smith from Tehachapi, CA took home the 2nd and 3rd spots beating out nearly 25 total entries in the open division. Open / Pro rider Jake Leiva also won Best Trick and a $500 cash prize during a new post-event contest hosted by Dennis Enarson from Markit and Henry from East County BMX. Trevor Fitz from Norco, CA took home the top spot in 18+ division as well as the overall win for the series. Brad Thomas from Chino, CA took his second win in the 15-17 advanced division, but it was Oscar Maldonado from Homeland, CA taking the overall series win. Monster Army rider Pierce Howell from Santee, CA continued his winning ways taking home his second consecutive win of the tour in the 12-14 Advanced division as well as the overall series win. The top 3 from this event and overall winners were rewarded with insane prizes, including a GoPro Camera, Rockwell Watch, Monster Army backpacks and apparel, SPY sunglasses and other prizes from Hookit and tour partners. Over $1,000 was raised for Brett ‘Mad Dog’ Banasiewicz in a special fundraiser to offer continued support in his recovery. A handful of winners went home with a Monster Energy fridge, two complete Mirraco Bikes, a Haro frame, Pro-Tec Helmets and parts and apparel from Primo BMX, Pant Saggin Dezigns, SPY, Flying Icon, Armourdillo and Swearcrew. “We couldn’t be happier with the way things ended after our first Recon Tour,” said Scott Tilton, CEO of Hookit, which runs the Recon Tour. “Our only goal was to put together solid contests that helped the riders get their name out there while giving brand partners new ways to support the riders. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this happen.” “The last and final stop of the Recon Tour was absolutely amazing and I’m really stoked on the vibe and where the tour is headed,” said Christopher Stumbles from Monster Energy. “We’re looking forward to blowing it up for years to come and really giving back to the riders.” Below are the final results from round three and the overall finishes in each division.
