Last weekend Saturday the 16 October the 2010 sixth annual Frontline Railjam took place downtown Stockholm. Over 25 invited riders from across Europe and Northamerica had gathered to shred the infamous rail setup consisting of the perfect down rail and doublekink.
This years lineup with riders was better then ever before with names like the Helgason brothers, Jed Anderson, Louif Paradise, Michael Cassanova, Hans Åhlund, Scotty Arnold, Marc Swoboda, Harison Gordon, Gulli Gudmundson among many others.
The format was as before two qualification jam session heats with half of the riders in each heat. The best 10 riders made it to the finals where brand-owner and event organizer Kareem El Rafie had his pockets full with 5.000 Euros in cash handing out money and instantly rewarding the riders after each stomped trick. When the time was out a winner was chosen and best tricks on each rail rewarded with the rest of the cash..
The quails was amazing to se as everyone was seending it to the fullest to impress the judges to make it to the finals and start collecting cash. All kind of tricks went down with spin in and outs, combos, nollies and etc. It couldn’t have bin easy to try to judge this madness but after boath heats where done 11 riders where picked to take their skills to the finals..
