The Factory at the Mn State Fair
It’s Labor Day weekend, you know what that means…..the Factory is back for another great year at the Minnesota State Fair for some of the best demos of the year. Local legendary skatepark Third Lair builds a whole skatepark setup every year for us to ride for the week and a half at the fair. Every year is different with new lines and obstacles. This year the ramps were certainly bigger, which meant we went bigger too. Some of our guys were air over the 14 foot vert wall while others were blasting backflips over other riders heads. The biggest challenges this year were the heat and the wind. It was 95 almost every day of the fair and some days there were 25-30mph wind gusts which tossed us around in the air more then usual. All in all a great year, we even brought back such classics as the Chicken Run, Flip-Whip, 360 Flip, and huge 540 transfers with a few crazy slams in there. If you missed it be sure to check it out next year, bigger and better every year!
