The boys were killing it once again at the 5th annual Burton Rail Days presented by MINI in Tokyo. In front of a crowd of almost 6.000 Darcy Sharpe took home the win.
Darcy Sharpe (CAN) clinched the win and $15,000. His final runs included a frontside boardslide 450 drop off, ally-oop wallride to lipslide 270 on the rainbow rail, as well as an impressive half Cab 50-50 transfer to lipslide 270. In second was Alex Andrews (USA) whose run highlights included a backside 270 lipslide, a 50-50 to frontboard transfer to fakie, and a boardslide 270 on the rainbow rail. Last year’s Burton Rail Days winner Zach Aller (CAN) came back strong this year and took third place with tech tricks including a frontboard to boardslide transfer 270 out and a front blunt 270 transfer to 50-50. Finally, the Canadians swept the three best trick categories—Sebastien Toutant (CAN) took Best Air for his boardslide rodeo off the cannon rail, Zach Aller (CAN) took Best Wallride with a massive frontside invert and Best Rail went to Darcy Sharpe (CAN) with a backside tailslide indy.
