Barrett fucking Junction! If you have ever skated the road you understand this very well. This is the jankiest pavement you can find. Most people would say it is unskateable. This road has that sketchy gnarliness to it and you have to expect the unexpected. It is well known because of the pavement which grows continually worse each year.
Barrett Junction is a big bro-down with good friends and a road that we don’t get hassled at as long as we are American. Each Barrett Junction seems to be a new book of it’s own where stories are made, tales are told and friendships bond.
The first night you are there, as you look into the sky and you can see every star in the universe, a shooting star or two go by. You can see the milky way, planets and other foreign objects. A wolf howls, the branches move and then the dirt bike comes roaring back into the camp reminding you that you aren’t alone out there.
Sunday morning rolls around and it’s race time. With Mike and Joe running the show there was no bullshitting around. Practice runs were held in the morning and once the race had started heats were run one after the other. It was over in a fashionable time and the award ceremony didn’t take an hour. Straight to the point. No kissing anyone’s asses for 2 hours after the race.
If you haven’t made it out to one of these events yet then you are missing out on a great time. It was my first time there myself but I will not miss it again. – Leecifer

October 1, 2011. Words alone can not describe how insanely gnarly and fun this event was. Muir skate is always pushing the limits farther and making everything bigger. This was no different. The event featured an insane 4′ tall kicker ramp called the Ishmael where riders were pushing the limits. Muir Skate knows how to push the sport with innovation and a lot of progression happens at their events. The course looked like a snowboard park. A ride on rail at the top. Then a variety of different size jumps to hit on your way down the hill.
Ed Lynn from Arizona boosting off the Ishmael over onlookers heads
The Ishmael was the highlight of the event. It propelled riders into orbit as they soared over onlookers heads. Big 360′s, 180′s, no comply’s and launch after launch off the ramp. There’s no way riders didn’t go home at the end of the day without bent trucks, bruised elbows, hips and sore feet/knees.
Duke Degan was trying for 360′s and 180′s all day off the big kicker
We started off the day headed toward Loretta St but soon altered directions after receiving word that the first hill was shut down by the po po 5-0 keeping us all safe. The event was moved to pump station the back up hill where we were not bothered.

We don’t remember who the winners were but we can tell you that Daniel Luna, Jimmy Riha, Duke Degan, Seth Brown and ANdrew Schumaker were all shredding super hard, trying new tricks and putting on a show.

The event also featured a longest slide competition, a hard wheel competition and a soft wheel competition which had an open class and a grom class. – Leecifer
