See you there!
The Lexington Cosmic Crew with team manager Josh Roberts, Micah Wu, Elijah Jones and David Wu met up with the Louisville Crew which included Wayne Krauth, Adrian Sisk, Michael Montgomery, John Clemmons, Matthew Sisk and Sarah Sisk. Salih Muhammad, the Pride of WV completed Cosmic’s presence at Damn Am Atlanta.
On Friday Micah skated in the bowl jam getting the attention of the judges with his smooth style and 50/50 270 out. On Saturday we had qualifiers. Elijah was ripping it in practice consistently hitting those kf backlips on the handrail. Unfortunately, tragedy struck when he turned his ankle just minutes before the contest began. Adrian, who was in the second jam skated clean, only touching ground 2 times in the 3 minute jam. He destroyed the stair set with a nollie flip and switchflip that looked as easy as walking. Adrian had the cleanest set out of Cosmic’s presence.
Micah in jam 12 began with four tricks to elbow crusher on a failed bs lip on the handrail. He skated 3 minutes with a broken elbow landing a fs noseblunt on the big ramp. Salih spent more time in the air than on the ground. It comes from all the mountain skating he does in WV. He landed a 360 melon over the flybox, airwalk on the big quarter plus several other airs. The trip was a great time.
Check out what Micah was up over his spring break. (Hint: it’s shredding)
