Australian Steve McCann took top honors at the Nescau MegaRamp Invitational in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Saturday. Placing second was double frontflip innovator Anthony Napolitan (who landed a no-handed double frontflip), followed by Aussie vert upstart Vince Byron.
In the high air comp, local Brazilian rider Doug Leichi took top honors, airing 20.5 feet on the quarterpipe (in his first time out on the MegaRamp), followed by McCann (19.5 feet) and Byron (19 feet).
And in Best Trick, Colton Satterfield took the win with a no-handed cork 720, followed by Byron in second (3-whip) and James Foster in third (double backflip). All Best Trick jumps were executed over the 60-foot gap of the MegaRamp.
Unfortunately, the weekend was not without its share of injuries. Morgan Wade, who won last month's MegaRamp Championship opener at Woodward West in Tehachapi, Calif., suffered a ruptured spleen and broken wrist on Friday during practice.
According to Wade's wife Natalie, Morgan has to stay a minimum of ten days in Brazil to give the surgical site for the lacerated spleen a chance to heal. After returning to the U.S., Wade will meet with physicians to determine when he can return to riding.
The Nescau MegaRamp Invitational was stop two of a four-part MegaRamp Championship Series, with stops at Woodward West, Sao Paulo, X Games 17 and a final event at Bob Burnquist's ramp in Vista, Calif.
