This past weekend marked the third annual Palavas Contest in France.There were a lot of U.S. riders making the cut this year and several of them took top three honors.

In street, Van Homan took first, Joe Rich got second and Ron Kimler rounded out the top three.

In dirt jumping, Alan Cook won, with Jerry Bagley in a close second and France’s own Stephane Renault recieved third.

In flatland, Phil Dolan and James White tied for first.

Vert news? Stefan Geisler won it, with Simon Tabron taking second place with a 900 and a no-handed 540.

Unfortunatley, Jay Miron dislocated his shoulder at the contest and will be out for a while. We wish Jay a speedy recovery.
