Flow had it coming. With a stacked team and “uniforms that rivaled any from the event’s seven-year history, Antti Autti, Mikka Hast, Scotty Lago, Risto Mattila, and Claire Bidez—all dressed as Ronald McDonald—set themselves apart from the pirates, the hillbillies, and the ninjas. Burton sent two teams to the Team Challenge this year, a men’s team that won the PIG event, and an all-too-hot women’s team that included overall female winner Molly Aguirre.
