San Diego, CA (October 8, 2012): The Recon Tour presented by Monster Army
wrapped up on Saturday at the Krause Family Skatepark / Mission Valley YMCA
in San Diego, CA. The Clairemont park was packed drawing over 110 entrees
from Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California as well as hundreds of
friends and family who all made it out for the finals.

Ross Lanier again showed he was the one to beat as he dominated the park
taking home both the round 3 win and overall title in the Open / Pro
division collecting $1,500 for his efforts. Woodward locals Jake Leiva and
Sebastian Smith from Tehachapi, CA took home the 2nd and 3rd spots beating
out nearly 25 total entries in the open division.

Open / Pro rider Jake Leiva also won Best Trick and a $500 cash prize
during a new post-event contest hosted by Dennis Enarson from Markit and
Henry from East County BMX.

Trevor Fitz from Norco, CA took home the top spot in 18+ division as well
as the overall win for the series. Brad Thomas from Chino, CA took his
second win in the 15-17 advanced division, but it was Oscar Maldonado from
Homeland, CA taking the overall series win. Monster Army rider Pierce
Howell from Santee, CA continued his winning ways taking home his second
consecutive win of the tour in the 12-14 Advanced division as well as the
overall series win.

The top 3 from this event and overall winners were rewarded with insane
prizes, including a GoPro Camera, Rockwell Watch, Monster Army backpacks
and apparel, SPY sunglasses and other prizes from Hookit and tour partners.

Over $1,000 was raised for Brett ‘Mad Dog’ Banasiewicz in a special
fundraiser to offer continued support in his recovery. A handful of winners
went home with a Monster Energy fridge, two complete Mirraco Bikes, a Haro
frame, Pro-Tec Helmets and parts and apparel from Primo BMX, Pant Saggin
Dezigns, SPY, Flying Icon, Armourdillo and Swearcrew.

"We couldn't be happier with the way things ended after our first Recon
Tour," said Scott Tilton, CEO of Hookit, which runs the Recon Tour. "Our
only goal was to put together solid contests that helped the riders get
their name out there while giving brand partners new ways to support the
riders. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this happen."

"The last and final stop of the Recon Tour was absolutely amazing and I'm
really stoked on the vibe and where the tour is headed," said Christopher
Stumbles from Monster Energy. "We're looking forward to blowing it up for
years to come and really giving back to the riders."
