Malinoski and Adkison Represent for Master Craft at the US Pro Tour
June 17, 2007
Rusty Malinoski continues his incredible run at the 2007 US Pro Tour of Wake Boarding, taking down some of the biggest names in the industry, fighting his way all the way to second place at the third stop in Twin Cities, MN. With a second in Atlanta and a win at the last stop in Texas, Rusty has entered into a battle with Phillip Soven for the overall US Pro Tour Championship Title. Malinoski is so solid it the water right now, the only one that has a chance of challenging him right now is Soven. With two stops left in 2007 it is going to come right down to the wire. Twin Cities, MN played host to the third stop of the 2007 US Pro Tour of Wake Boarding, turning it on for the comp with sunny skies all weekend long and light winds for the majority of the competition allowing the riders to perform at the highest level possible. Rusty Malinoski took full advantage of the conditions throwing out his hammer tricks including a Crow Mobe 5, heel 7 and a massive toe 900 off the double up.
Andrew Adkison returned to form this weekend after a bit of a shaky start to his 2007 campaign, but with his trouble behind him he took to the water with the usual consistency and determination that he is known for. After making the podium in 4 out of the 5 events last season, Adkison looks set to claw his way back to the top of the rankings.
Shane Bonifay had another solid finish, winning his heat in the first round and then putting on an even better performance in the round of 16, unfortunately being out ridden by Adam Errington. Bonifay’s rail riding is still second to none, styling out one of the most impressive nose presses ever done in competition riding.
The next stop on the US Pro Tour of Wake Boarding is in Kelowna, Canada on the 7th and 8th of July.
