There was much anticipation to this year’s East/West shootout. The best riders from each coast would get a chance to compete for the first time this year. Unfortunately, two of Star’s riders, Cooper Webb and Jeremy Martin, were unable to race. Martin had sustained a training related injury during the week, and Webb crashed in the free practice. Anthony Rodriguez was in the top ten, when he crashed in the whoops and had to pull out of the race. The team’s rookie, Aaron Plessinger, was on top form; after a twelfth place start, he worked his way through the field, and finished up fourth.
