Helsinki HELride has successfully brought people together from all over the world for the 5th time, this three day event is growing into something you definitely want in next years calendar!
2019 kicked off on Thursday with Falafals overlooking a popular wall ride spot to get everyone warmed up. Then a short push to a low to high ledge where those with a bit of pop could win some cash! Not far from there a steep ass bank with limited roll away made for quite a spectacle as people sent themselves towards the ground in the hope of walking away with some money. Rain pulled in and it seemed like they day was done. There was one more spot planned however: a bump over rail that Simon Karlsson single handily shut down in the wet!
Friday kicked off with another bump over bar. This time on a beautiful sunny day at the newly renovated Amos Rex square followed by a session on a one of a kind glass bank. From there to the 12 stair where Dlamini Dlamini sent the crowd into hysterics with a perfect Nollie Backside Flip. The day was brought to an end with girls Bowl jam, live music and beers in the Finnish sunshine.
Dlamini Dlamini – Frontside Flip
As tradition goes Saturday was spent at Suvilahti DIY where a few best tricks challenges were had throughout the park. The main event of the day was however the Monster Death Race. A race where rules don't seem to matter as sabotage is all part of the game! All eyes were on Kevin Baekkel and Dario Mattarollo after a heated final last year, and this year was no different. Well Done Kevin on another victory!
Till next year!
