Somehow, I ended up in Moscow, Russia, checking out and judging the Adrenaline Games. An annual contest in the center of Moscow, the Adrenaline Games is the biggest action sports event in the city and invites riders from all around the world to compete against the heavy local scene. Today was just prelims, but the contest started off pretty well with 46 riders getting taken down to 20 for the semi finals. Unfortunately, like I said, I’m judging the event so I can’t really get out and shoot a ton of photos, but here’s 35  from familiar names like Garrett Reynolds, Sean Ricany, Christian Rigal, Brian Kachinsky, Nicoli Rogatkin, and Alessandro Barbero, plus tons of local Russian killers, too.

Please excuse any incorrect names. I don’t have a list to work off at the moment and, well, the names are pretty hard to remember. Full results once they get e-mailed to me…
