Last year the Bode Merrill Mini-Pipe Invitational saw some insane action, with some of the best riders rocking up to show their appreciation.

With not a single double or triple cork in sight, this contest is all about flair, creativity and individuality and epitomises what mini-pipe is all about. Some big names have made appearances over the years too – Gigi Ruf, Alex Oestreng and Chris Grenier have all pitted themselves against Bode. The only thing Bode won last year was Best Crash. Good on him.

No dates have been set for this years event yet but it’s certainly in the (ahem) pipeline. Watch this space.
