Casey Groves - Trip to Teva Mtn Games 2010

Last weekend in Vail, Colorado the Teva Mountain Games were held once again and it was fantastic! I had never been to Teva before so I really wanted to make the trip out there. The course always looked awesome and it seemed like everyone was having a blast with each other.

Come on in for the rest of the story!*Title shot of Eric Lawrenuk by brycerink.pinkbike.com*

Two months ago I received a phone call from Wes Graham (Goatstyle Director). He wanted me and my dad to come with him and the Goatstyle crew to Teva. I immediately got the ball rolling. I had my flight booked and so did my dad. I was looking forward on the trip and realized that I would be the only one in the condo who would be riding in any of the events, and it kinda weakened me. So I thought... Why not invite a friend?! I drove up to Benton Leong's house and asked him to join us! Sure enough, the next thing we knew, we were packing up bike boxes and heading to Spokane to meet up with the crew and catch our flight!

Our flight was delayed for about 5 hours, which led Benton and I into missing the first day's practice. We arrived at the Antler's lodge around midnight. Ben and I built up our bikes and went to bed. The next morning was great! Eggs, Bacon and Toast were waiting for us on the table! Thanks to Papa Groves for that! We hopped aboard our bikes and rode to Vail Village to see what was happening.

Around noon we met up with Justin Wyper, Reece Wallace, Sam Dueck, Noah Bousseau and Mike Dekoning. They were just going to watch the qualifying of the Dual Stunt. Benton and I had them point us in the direction of the slopestyle course and we adventured over to check it out. The course was sweet, nothing too big or scary, but enough to have fun and throw down. Practice was later that day, so Ben and I headed to stay hydrated and energized. Practice that evening was really good, although the high elevation was pretty hard on us as we got everything down pat.

Now enough of me talking, I have made a video for you to watch how Benton and I did. We had a broken tripod and a drunk filmer for qualifying and finals so runs are missing and the camera is shaking at times, ha ha!
