Ryan Clements had a perfect run and won it. I had a perfectly busted run and ended up being one of those guys that misses every trick. You're just like, "Dude, try something you can land, asshole." Yeah, one of those guys. Anyway, some old dudes in this contest are still ripping like Josh Friedberg from 411. He's got a giant pop shuv and some big back heels, but couldn't stay on in his run. Justin Williams was ripping, too. Here's the results:
