Claymore Challenge Photo Highlights

NORTHFIELD, New Hamp. ( - 2010 Claymore Challenge was bigger and better than every. Loads of spectators, compeditors from around the world, live webcasted video coverage, jumbo-tron video at the event, and plenty of activities for everyone the entire day.

A dramatic change from last year was the weather and conditions. 2009 had wet conditions caused by rains the night before the event causing a 2-3 hour delay in the competition. This year Highland Mountain was beyond dry!

When the dust settled - literally - the 2009 Claymore Champion Brandon Semenuk defended his title by edging out 2cd place finisher Cameron McCaul by only 0.25 points! Cameron McCaul had qualified first and was sitting in the hot seat after the first round after front flipping the huge 20+ foot jump at the end called Freebird - very spectacular! McCaul was on his way to putting together a competition winning second run until Freebird freed him of his bike and sent him dirt sliding down the back side with some nasty road rash to prove it. That gave Semenuk the win.

Podium makeup:
1. Brandon Semenuk (CAN)
2. Cameron McCaul (USA)
3. Logan Peat (CAN)
4. Casey Groves (CAN)
5. Daren Berrecloth (CAN)

Here's a collection of highlight photos from the event.
