DNA Evolution Tour some final thoughts....
To those of you who may or may not know what the DNA evolution tour is. I want to share a few words regarding this large amatuer jibbing tour.The tour for me was a great experience, it allowed me to compete head to head with sonme really high class skiers. I thought the entire idea and set up was amazing. It really took some hard work to get this tour started I'm sure just by looking at this rail set up you could see how much work went into it. I competed last weekend at the Crested Butte stop, and headed to Grand Junction this past tuesday. I expected big things when I showed up in Grand junction, however when I got there I realized that there was more than a couple of skiers and boarders. Compared to Crested Butte this turnout was unbeleivable. The night could not have been any better to showcase our preseason jibbing. Throughout the competition the skiers progressively got better, it was amazing to see it take off. Switch ups everywhere, and unthinkable 270's on and off. All in all I thought this tour was a great experience to the amatuer scene, and it was run in a very professional manner. To all of you skiers out there, I have a feeling that this is the first of a long history of this sort of competition. Best of luck to the DNA evolution tour in the future.
i would hardly call not showing up to stops or canceling them "proper manner."

You ain't got to explain shit,
i've been robbin motherfuckers since the slave ships,
with the same clip, and the same 4-5.
Two point blank, a motherfucker's sure to die.
I attended one stop and it was a nice production. Although it took to long to get started and people got tired and lost the vibe, but it drew a great turnout.

They had a stop in Grand Junction, but not in C Springs? That's odd.
It's not DNA's fault that they didn't have an event in c-springs, its the store who didnt think that they would have a good turn out so the store canceled it not DNA
I competed, it was sick. I learned new tricks on it too. I thought it was fun. Little sketchy sometimes. The night in SLC where 4 different people broke their wrists in some way including me was a disaster though. Fun nonetheless.
and thats Willem!
i dont know that i feel the same way about this tour. it bothered me a lot to see 6 boxes of dna summer line going back out the door at a shop after they held the event.i live in the springs and people were going to come to our stop, i think its lame they canceled it. i love dna as a company, but i don't know that this thing went as well as they had hoped it would.
'what?' Lauren every time you ask her a question for the first time!skiing what i thought this was a porn site and every one i was talking to were sexy ppl ..i thought skiing was a sex term we all uesed. damn!-twintiprider
DNA hasn't cancelled any tours its been the shops, for one reason or another. if you feel your town wasn't supported by this tour, you should feel like your shop wasn't supporting your need of getting this tour to stop there. its pretty fun, and yeah you do get worked over a bit, I've done it four times now, and every time I leave bruised and battered, but I always got my moneys worth. I say props to everyone that had the balls to compete in any of these contests regardless of who is entered, or how difficult it is to do tricks. I've seen from skiers alone cab two's on two off, two on pretzel two off the down flat down, two on three sixty switch up, every switch up you can think of, along with a billion tech tricks. its legit in my mind.
Liqour? I hardly even know her.
