Marcus nabs first, Errol Kerr takes second in Banzai

2 Comments 23 January 2011

If you thought day one qualifiers of the first-ever Beaver Bowl Banzai at Alpine Meadows were crazy, Sunday’s finals with four skiers or snowboarders going head to head was … four times as crazy.


Marcus Caston took the surprise win from Alpine Meadows’ Jamaican Ski Team Errol Kerr, who had been dominating both days right up until the finals. Brian Sheehan rounded out the podium for men’s skiing.


French phenom Sylvian Duclos took first in men’s snowboarding, followed by Graham Watanabe and Matt Clark.


Shannon Rahlves, sister of the Banzai Series’ creator, Daron Rahlves, took first in women’s skiing, making for three wins in three years in the Banzai format. Shelly Robertson and Chloe Georges took second and third.


And in women’s snowboarding, Alison Martin, Courtney Baker and Amanda Spence took the podium positions.

    I could have told you that Marcus Caston is the best. His grandmother knew it all the time. Looks like alot of fun.

  2. What a killer weekend and an awesome race! The snow really did a job in isolating the best riders and skiers. Looking forward to the next at Kirkwood!
