Recap: Red Bull Hart Lines in Detroit

Posted by Rob Meronek on Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Congrats, Curren! Finishing off his already ripping run with that gap to nosegrind on the big rail was mindblowing and put him far ahead in first early on in the Finals. I hope you were here to witness that! We'll keep you posted on when it airs on NBC on August 1st. Thanks Red Bull for having us on a fun project and another super good event. We've got some Blabac photos mixed in with our own below.
