Texas Big Air veteran Morgan Wade took top honors at the first 2011 MegaRamp Championship Series event at Woodward West in Tehachapi, Calif. on Thursday. Placing second behind Morgan was Australian vert upstart Vince Byron, and grabbing third place was KHE's James Foster, the newest member of the Nitro Circus Live crew.
Rounding out the top five was Colton Satterfield in fourth, and Hoffman Bikes' Zack Warden in fifth. Additional highlights include triple backflip innovator Jed Mildon landing the world's first double backflip over the 70-foot gap, and Coco Zurita reportedly reaching the "stratosphere" on the 27-foot quarter.
We'll have a full report tomorrow, but for now, congrats to Morgan Wade for holding it down and earning a long overdue win on the big ramp. I'm going to guess the win was partially due to that one night you slept on my couch in Jersey City last month.
