"Team Green" 4th Place KPL TEAM BATTLE 2022.

Rounding out the showing was Team Green, whose work ethic, riding mastery, and the video's fast tempo excited the crowd and left all the riders impressed. When the videos finished, the crowd erupted, and it was transparent that every rider was proud of the outcome of their videos, making the week's endeavors and the Team Battle formatting that much more meaningful.

The KPL introduces a fun new competition format where riders come together in teams with the focus set on showcasing the best most creative riding in a video part. By the end of the week, prizes will be awarded to standout riders, the best crash, rookies, the best tricks, and obviously the best team video!

Video Criteria: Each rider has to include a minimum of one clip in the video, but a single rider cannot exceed 10 clips. Beyond these basic parameters, creativity, collaborative efforts, and team ingenuity will be the driving force in determining the winner of the 2022 Hood River Team Battle. On September 3rd, the riders will be given the opportunity to exercise their own judgment and cast their ballots for the team they believe has produced the best video.

Thank you to our sponsors for making this possible.
