The line-up is stacked with talent including the likes of 17-year old, Tyler Flannagan (USA), who has been making his mark on the TTR World Tour this season. Tyler took second place at the legendary 6Star Oakley Arctic Challenge among some heavy competition in Oslo, Norway. Also planning to attend is American, Sam Hulbert, who won the 5Star slopestyle title at the Burton Canadian Open. Matts Kulisek (CAN) has some good TTR results under his belt and is another rider to watch out for at the RIDE Shakedown along with fellow Canadian, Zak Stone, who took second place at the 5Star Canadian Open slopestyle back in February. All of these riders can better their positions within the TTR Top 100 with a good result here at the Shakedown. Unique
