There are a bunch of different young riders in this video, but you will see that Benny truly steals the show.
Not too long ago the Hometown Heroes Contest Tour made a stop at 3rd Lair Skatepark in Golden Valley. The skaters showed up in top form and made it hard for the judges to pick a winner. When it was all said and done, Jace Torkelson won first place after nailing a kickflip back smith on the bump to rail. The runners up were Eli Rashad in second and Ricky Nunn in third.

In case you didn’t already hear, 3rd Lair Skatepark in Golden Valley just built a giant vert ramp. Their skatepark already features an amazing setup inside, but they decided to top it offer with a jaw-dropping monster outside.

We’ll keep you updated about any contest that might be featured on the beast!
