The facts and figures behind Mitch Ropelato’s last-minute bid for the King of Crankworx crown are staggering.

The world lost an icon on October 12th, 2016 with the passing of Dylan Rieder. After battling and beating leukemia twice, Dylan, surrounded by friends and family in Los Angeles, passed away from complications of his illness.
We wanted to honor Dylan’s legacy with a special ode, compiling footage from his early days at Osiris going all the way through his Supreme and Fucking Awesome rampage. No matter his age, Dylan was wholly himself and eternally inimitable.
In lieu of sending flowers, Dylan’s family requests donations be made in his memory to Dr. Stephen Forman. Please address checks to; City of Hope, in memo line: to Dr. Stephen Forman for Dylan Rieder.

Twenty-nine competitors gathered in the Slider Project Park from August 5th to the 11th to see who would throw down the hardest and claim their spot as the top park rider of the event.
