Team 541 wins Red Bull Rivals at Marginal Way Skatepark
Last year, Tactics sent several riders to Battleground, WA to compete alongside other Oregon shops in Red Bull’s Rivals contest: Oregon v. Washington. Teams were whittled down, but ultimately, Washington came out on top. Home field advantage? Maybe.
This year was a little different. For 2012, Red Bull pitted area codes against each other: 206, 253, 260, and 541. No big teams this year, just three skaters from each area code. After all was said and done Team 541, which included Tactics’ rider Alex Dinwiddie and former employee and current NHS rep Brice Niebuhr, impressed the judges the most and came out on top. Way to rep the 541!
