Taku Hiraoka and Ellery Hollingsworth won the Mini Creative Use of Space Award at this year's US Open, each finishing the weekend $5,000 richer for their troubles. In the halfpipe, the contest requires riders to do a slightly unusual trick, so Ellery's sick, grabbed backside rodeo won for the women while Taku's Japan McTwist took the title for the men. $5,000 eh? Not bad for a quick couple of seconds' work is it...?
