And The Team Shoot Out Winner Is…

The smoke has cleared from the first Team Shoot Out and … (for those of you who haven’t already seen the September issue) ROME SNOWBOARDS TOOK THE WIN! Congratulations to all the Rome riders: Eiki Helgason, Bjorn Leines, Marie-France Roy, Will Lavigne, and LNP for charging hard on the Vampire schedule and destroying every feature Bear put in front of them. Hell yeah to the creative and organizational crew from Rome including Ryan Runke, John Cavan, and Mike Paddock.

Big ups to Bear Mountain resort, which hosted the Rome Team, including Snow Park Technologies’ Mike Binnel, Park Manager Clayton Shoemaker, and the rest of the late night crew: Desi Hauer, Brandon Reppond, Dan Nielsen, Greg Sebree, Bob Tonseth, Will Keating, and Jesse Hallstead.

TransWorld Senior photographer Scott Serfas gets bragging rights winning the judges over with his submission of gritty black and white images, including this month’s cover shot of LNP.

Rome’s John Cavan and Vincent Urban likewise cut a mean edit to Queen’s Of The Stone Age “Misfit Love” and packed it tight with (seriously) non-stop action.

Thanks to all the teams for making this first ever TransWorld Team Shoot Out a total success. Is it winter yet?
