Behind The Scenes Of The Cattleman's Rail Jam Part 2

The Cattleman's rail is the main access way to the lifts at Mt Buller therefore it is a huge effort by the resort and park staff to shut it down and start the build for the event. The stairs are shut from midday with an event kick off at 6pm

Just before kick off and all credit to the park staff.

Chris Jepson has been on the mic from the start back in 2006

Judges for the event Russell Holt editor of Transfer magazine and Shane Carter Burton Australia brand manager.Chris Jepson and Paul from SITW where also on the judging panel for the event.

The park stuff worked during the event making sure the set up held up during the contest and the very difficult weather conditions.

Jye Kearney was riding with a radio mic, it will be interesting to hear that audio.

The judges form, notice the number of landed tricks from Robbie and Jye (1 & 3).

Of course what rail event is complete without a double backflip.

1st Robbie Walker

Best Trick Mikey Williams (50/50 Kink)

Cattleman's is done for another year and all involved give yourself a high five and get ready for next year.
