The 4th Annual Claymore Challenge is in the record books, finally! After days of rain delays the riders and event promoter were not sure if the show would go on! But the combination of the dedication from the Highland Crew and with the motivation of the riders - it was pulled off and a winner was crowned! Brandon Semenuk took top honors for the 3rd year in a row, but it was the comeback of veteran Freerider Kyle Strait that took everyone by surprise - Kyle not only walked away with 3rd place, but also was awarded the Best Trick award as well as wild card spots to both Red Bull Joyride and Red Bull District Ride!

 Ok, any event that uses a sweet sword to dub people "bike knight?" is awesome.

 Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing video. Really showcasing the event. But almost all of the clips were slow motion, which was a little bothering.

 they should have included that 15yo kid wiping the front flip off the Highland drop... balls! The kid had a great run until that, he's gonna go places.

 yeah they totally should have done... his riding was gnarly. They should have had a clip of green tires too!

 green tires was in there if you look closely! Way too much stuff to pack into one vid, might edit a longer version from the week...we'll see!

 oh shit yeah... one footed table out of the quarter, sick! And I didn't say, but sweet vid man, great job... a longer version would definitely get some love too.

 Heres a pic I got of GT cracking that 1 footed table outta the quarter, kid did good, it was great to see him tearing it up with the big boys.
