The downhill dirt section at Woodward starts out small and just gets huge. The fifth set is large and intimidating.

The vert contest was fairly uneventful and it may have had something to do with the fact that the gravity games were right around the corner and no one wanted to get hurt.

Mat Hoffman: No-handed-one-footed-540, front-peg-grab-540, front peg-grab-no-footer, and lots more.
Jamie Bestwick: Alley-oop front-peg-grab, and alley-oop everything else, huge airs, and the best moto-style of the contest.
Dave Mirra: No-hand-to-X-up-540, superman-seatgrab over the channel.
Kevin Robinson: Alley-oop-540 across an eight-foot channel.
Rob Nolli: Barspin-to-barspin back, suicide-nosepick-to-double barspin (almost pulled it).

In the end it was super close between Hoffman and Bestwick for the win, but Hoffman came out on top. Mirra was feeling beat up from the dirt contest and didn't seem too happy with his riding, and wound up in third. After the contest the year-end awards were handed out and Hoffman took the title, and golden straight jacket that goes with it.
