Tampa Pro 2005 Team Manager/Industry VIP Contest
Words and Photos by Rob Meronek

I swear, this isn't rigged. Ryan Clements won two years in a row and also is just coming off a win from the Old Man Bowl Jam we have every year at Tampa Am. This year his run included a backside disaster on the vert wall and more tricks made than any other old dudes in the contest. I bailed every trick in my second run and I don't even have the hangover excuse to use. Crap. See you at the sketchy Czar Bar in Ybor tonight, or maybe not.
