The first FMB Bronze level event at Silver Star Bike Park is now done. Silver Style was an awesome event for competitors and spectators alike, going down on August 31st. This was the first year the event was part of the FMB World Tour and it was great to see the increased level ridership and talent at the event. Sponsored by Fox, Norco Bicycles, X-Fusion Shox, RockStar, Oakley, Dakine and Vernon Toyota, Silver Style had tons of great prizes for spectators and athletes.
The slopestyle, broken into Amateur and Pro/Open category, had extremely high skill level and there were super impressive tricks and runs getting thrown down right from the word go. At some points throughout the day it was very difficult to distinguish between Pro and Amateur categories in fact.
In the end Liam Wallace put together an amazing run to take first place in amateur at Silver Style and continue his success at the top of the FMB Amateur standings. And in the Pro category there was a great duel between Anthony Messere and Tom Van Steenbergen for top spot. Anthony was throwing huge smooth tricks all day and was able to come first place and the $1000 first place purse defeating last year's defending champion Van Steenbergen.Amateur Category
