2012 Midwest Melee

If you ever get the chance to skate in the Midwest Melee, do it.  If you ever get the chance to watch the Midwest Melee, do it.

A few years ago we did the 3rd Lair Summer Series with Benny Milam and everyone was killing it.  Now, well, you could say things escalated quickly and the level of skating has popped through the roof.  Every grom from the Summer Series has grown into bearded who destroy the Midwest Melee.

The 2012 Midwest Melee was a spectacular display of skill and progression and only 3rd Lair could host such a great event.  Qualifiers were a bloodbath battle of epic proportions on Saturday, and by the time Semi-Finals and Finals came around on Sunday it was an all out war.  In between skater’s 60 second runs the park got flooded for 10 seconds with riders trying to dial in last minute tricks (absolute chaos).

The sweatiest man in the park award went to Danny Kern who thrashed around like there was no tomorrow insight,  Corey Millett landed bolts more times than anyone else, and Kenny Peterson ripped his was into 4th place.  The Midwest Melee never disappoints, ever.
