Halloween Hellride 3
The Hellride gets gnarlier every year. Raybourn claims the top spot, Ronnie literally gets caked, and Charlie Blair shuts down the festivities with a taildrop of death. Happy Halloween!

When choosing a costume for something like this, how well you can skate in it is a key factor. Raney Bares as Duane Peters and kept with the theme by skating just like Duane and only doing Duane’s signature tricks. Those timeless moves can still get you to the finals.
and thats time...
The crowd went nuts.
Nine of your ten finalists, Raney/Duane was in typical Duane fashion M.I.A.
