Ray's 3Ride

Last weekend, in the midst of a cold, icy, and snowy Midwest winter, freeriders descended upon Cleveland, Ohio for the second annual Ray's 3Ride for a two day competition, which involved a sport course, a pump track, a street park, and jumping.

Things heated up when JD Swanguen beat Brian Lopes in a head-to-head battle on the pump track. JD boosted a never-before-ridden line in the Subaru Street Park; as he linked the two jumps, he got so much height that he knocked out one of the fluorescent lights that was mounted above the rafters.

At the end of the weekend, 17-year-old San Diego rider JD Swanguen, who rides for Cove Factory Team, was crowned overall champion. When asked, Swanguen said, "My bike worked perfect the entire weekend. It allowed me to relax, have a good time, and focus on my runs."
