Burnout: Everybody Wins
The Pro of Copenhagen.

Everybody's a fan.
'Nah, more like a band photo.'
There we go.
Beach and Janoski, ready for battle.
Who's Braydon peer-pressuring now?
Inside, Brian lays out the rules. Total pro.
Cole was fired up, as per usual.
David - air time, rock and roll, etc.
Colin Kennedy, the Isle's finest.
Roberto oops it up, despite never sleeping.
The Thrasher wall, bisected by funky skull.
Peek-a-boo switch ollie. Stefan is sick!
Dustin, practically giving his board a reacharound.
Steamer, steady smashin'.
Switch crooks. That's right!
Every so often the event would get shut down while kids stormed the course.
Instead of stickers, the contest people in Europe give the children beer.
'I get mad thirsty!'
Back to the action. Cole jumps on a slew of less-popular lein variations.
Always a heavy on the course, Dennis did manuals up this thing.
Three-flip lip, tire obstacle.
This is the only photo I got of Luan. He's sort of hard to pin down at these things.
Pfanner blindsides the whoop-de-doo.
Airbourne, more often than not.
Hella speed ...
to jump the whole taxi cab spine thing.
Grant clears the funky skull with a back lip. Yowza!
Later, icing down.
Little moral support from the Phelper never hurts.
The race portion of the event. 'Never before seen in competition,' except when we did it on KOTR about five times.
Braydon was definitely a contender.
Louie vs Curren.
Langi vs Evan.
Evan vs Colin.
Smash up at the funky skull!
In the end it was Caples vs Smith for the title.
Strong showing by both.
Next up - the car jump.
Big Dog? Ready.
Schmitty? Sky angle.
Switch tre. Check out that bowl of dip!
'Did I do that?'
A little later - awards prep.
Curren's a winner!
Boulala's a winner too!
Peter? Oh fuck yeah he's a winner.
Even Dustin won!
The big, big winners.
Luan always gets emotional.
He's a sweet kid like that.
'Ok. Ok. You can let me go now ...'
