The next stop of the Monster Recon Tour landed in Greenville, North Carolina where Daniel Dhers opened up the doors of The Animal House for all the young guns to come through and show everyone what they had. Take a look at what went down in this video!
“The Monster Army Recon Tour presented by Replay XD, held the East Coast Finals at the Animal House in Greenville, NC. The Animal house has been around since the mid 00’s and was owned and operated by the great, Dave Mirra. Now in 2013, pro BMX athlete Daniel Dhers has control of the Animal House. Daniel rides and trains at this facility and also operates the park. All of the athletes were ecstatic to be able to compete in a park where legends like Mirra and Dhers train on a daily basis.
The event was amazing throughout the day and a magnitude of huge tricks were being thrown down. Athletes were putting their bodies on the line trying to gain the top spot in their division. In order to take the top spot athletes were throwing tricks like front flips, double whips, 720s, and more to give them the edge. In the Play Open division, Jake Leiva, traveling all the way from Tehachapi, CA, ended up walking away with 1st place and the honor of getting invited to the Play Open Finals at Mike Spinner’s park on September 7th. Jake was riding on another level than the field and even the great, Dave Mirra was on hand to witness the magic of his riding. We now know why Greenville, NC has been named Pro Town USA, and we wish Jake the best of luck on becoming the next great rider of our time.“
