After a brief hiatus,
Hoedown at the Hoof brought the heat for it’s 11th anniversary. So much went down during the best “nontest” around! Here’s some photos I was able to capture throughout the day. Looking at these I can still hear Gymbo singing “Hoof! There it is!” Thanks everyone for a fun day.
Video recap of the event can be enjoyed here.
Ready to roll!
Hoof! There it is! Gymbo and Pedro Cohen

Third place Open Category winner, Adam Hopkins
Adam had a bit of a mishap during the finals and cut his head open on a madonna to smith gone wrong. He was fine and wanted to keep skating, but stitches were needed. It's hard to see with blood in your eyes.
