THE FIRST ANNUAL BOMB HOLE CUP

SNOWBOARD BANKED SLALOM / PARK SHOWDOWN / COMMUNITY GET TOGETHER
April 2nd and 3rd, 2022

Words by Jules

Well, the first annual Bomb Hole Cup has come to a close and we ran it fast and loose per typical Bomb Hole style. We lost some trophies, had a timing mishap or two, couple injuries, but minimal preparation is to be expected from a company run by Stoney Budz and Diesel—too much fun to sweat the details. And hey, we pulled the thing off and it seemed like everyone had a really great time.

Saturday was race day. All business. People showed up with their fastest attitudes and most aerodynamic gear and it was on. To be honest I was holed up sick in the condo for the majority of the day, but if you were there then you don't need me to paint the picture for you, and if you weren't there, you should've been. Maybe next year.

Course looked spicy in the morning sunlight for day two's Park Showdown. The groms kicked us off with a 45-minute jam session followed by about 70 people flying in all directions for the Open division. Simultaneous jump and rail sessions made for a lot of action and luckily just a little bit of carnage. Our friends at Traeger supplied us with food all day long that was not only delicious but also free, while Red Bull and Mountain Time kept our thirsts quenched and energy high. Todd Richards and Joey B were electric on the microphone. I'm still trying to crack the science of how Richards' has jokes locked, loaded, and ready to fire off at all times. Mandatory cab 9's set the precedent for the Pro division, and with 45 minutes on the jump and 45 minutes on the rails, our guys and girls put on a show. Nobody was going to let the Bomb Hole Cup conclude without a proper ender trick; Spencer Schubert delivered with a gap of a lifetime to the bottom of the hell rail.

Congratulations to all of our winners and THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who came out and everyone who helped make this event possible! Thanks to Brighton, Jared Winkler, all the diggers, judges, volunteers, and Spy, Volcom, Union, Capita, CBDays, Traeger, Red Bull, Slowtide, Mountain Time, and Save A Brain.
