Burnout: Pinch vs Wedge

The SOTY Down Unda crew fires it up, only to get stymied by a human skatestopper. Ishod skids big and Kwalks snags the cover.

BURNOUT 0042Looks like Jacko wants a photo too.

BURNOUT 0043Zion mashes it out on the mini.

BURNOUT 0044All terrain, this guy. More on that later

BURNOUT 0045And then Donnelly punches out the closer. As usual

BURNOUT 0046Around the bend: this thing

BURNOUT 0047Locals mostly

BURNOUT 0048Suicide Towers. Not exactly a lil' guy

BURNOUT 0049Heavy duty

BURNOUT 0050Ishod breaks the ice, back board style

BURNOUT 0051The locals started talking shit almost immediately.

BURNOUT 0052Wow!

BURNOUT 0053Zion dives for the pinch.

BURNOUT 0054Solid skidding unrivaled

BURNOUT 0055Just fearless

BURNOUT 0056One micron off

BURNOUT 0057And then the next thing you know…

BURNOUT 0058Well, that's one way to skatestop it

BURNOUT 0059No amount of chit chat would get him uncrammed

BURNOUT 0060Somehow the Phelper eventually talked him off the pole

BURNOUT 0061Just in time

BURNOUT 0062There it is!

BURNOUT 0063Total pandemonium

BURNOUT 0064Even the dude wanted in on it

BURNOUT 0065Won over by stoke!

BURNOUT 0066Ecstatic

BURNOUT 0069Minutes later, down the road

BURNOUT 0070This other thing

BURNOUT 0071The SOTY gets straight to it
BURNOUT 0072Flying past the sidewalk.

BURNOUT 0073Hanging it out! At this moment the locals started screaming threats

BURNOUT 0074Throughout it all, Kyle kept charging

BURNOUT 0075Eventually they came out and sprayed Cody down with a hose (not shown)

BURNOUT 0076But the damage was done. 'That's why YOU'RE the SOTY, kid…'
