The final day of the second stop of the Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown went off at Terminus Wake Park outside of Atlanta and featured some of the best riding ever to go down across the board at a WPTC event. Mother Nature played coy today sprinkling in some light showers, but the day was dominated by bright sun and intense competition. Everybody from the Amateur Women to the Pro Men threw everything they had on the line to go after a piece of the $20,000 purse.

Highlights from the day included the final round of the Open Men’s division. Within the last minute of the round there were two backside 7’s, a frontside 9, and a mute double half cab roll. MC Shane Bonifay called it the best final of the day – even better than the Pro Men or Pro Women. The mute double half cab came courtesy of local shredder Blake Bishop – and while he ended up finishing second in his group, his landing of that trick got the loudest cheers and congratulations from both crowd and fellow riders alike. The cherry on top was that Blake had never landed that trick – he’d actually barely ever tried it – before stomping it in the last 10 seconds of the finals. Another highlight of the day was Women’s Pro Features champ Angelika Schriber stomping a giant backside 7 off the kicker and Aaron Gun taking the top spot in Pro Men’s Features with an unbelievably precise and stylish session in the park.
