Over the past few days, leaks have come out here and there from a gathering at Mt. Bachelor last week. Valentino Guseli rapping with Dane Menzies. Craig McMorris and Mikey Ciccarelli excelling at a particularly challenging round of divot digging. Elston did this.

Those guys were five of eighteen riders competing in Red Bull Landing Gear, which looks like a very intriguing progeny of the early aughts' Seek & Destroy (a Red Bull event that took place in that hazy  time before the internet was really firing and so can only be found playing in SD on unknown YouTube accounts, which we're appreciate of). 

The concept? Nine teams of two riders each were given a three-day window to film a side hit video at Mt. Bachelor. Last Friday, the videos were screened in Bend and Scotty Stevens, Annie Fast, and Chris Grenier judged them, dolling out $10,000 in prize money.

Only misty info has come out so far, teasing a full online release of all the edits coming soon. From what we can gather via Instagram stalking sleuthing, is that the rider roster was this list of heavy hitters:

Craig McMorris, Mikey Ciccarelli, Ben Ferguson, Jared Elston, Desiree Melancon, Nora Beck, Emma Crosby, Gabe Ferguson, Brock Crouch, Valentino Guseli, Dane Menzies, Dru Brownrigg, Kai Huggin, Cannon Cummins, Jadyn Chomlack, Sean FitzSimons, Arthur Longo, and Olivier Gittler.

Mt. Bachelor also (spoiler alert) put out some highlights and announced the winners. Avoid that post if you want to watch the rest of the videos before you know who took home the 10 g's.
