High Cascade Session Four : Full Recap 2014
Session Four was a whirlwind of Mini Pipe mayhem. Signature Sessioners ™ Bode Merrill, Brandon Cocard, Chris Beresford, Desiree Melancon, and Mary Rand had all of camp frothing to compete. Bode hosted a Mini Pipe contest for the campers, with veteran camper Matt Cornwall coming in first and earning a coveted spot in the MMPI. Brandon Cocard kept it a lower impact and had campers testing their taste buds with a jellybean eating contest.
The highlight of the session was certainly the Merrill Mini Pipe Invitational, where current pros and pros from years past descended upon the best Mini Pipe of the summer. Austen Sweetin took first with Red Gerard in second and Chad Otterstrom in third. Never has a pipe contest podium been entirely under 5'5" and also so diverse in age. What these riders lacked in height they made up for in hang time as they soared, spun and planted their way to victory.
