Dillon Ojo rallied into second, while Jordan Small nabbed third and Jaeger Bailey took home best trick for a 50-50 hardway 270 transfer. On the women’s side, Melissa Evans earned her fourth HDHR crown.

“This year’s event was bigger and better than ever,” said Clayton Shoemaker, Director of Park Development and Youth Marketing for Bear Mountain. “Hot Dawgz and Hand Rails is the ultimate winter kick-off party.
