I knew something more was going on with those Nike 6.0 “The Pool” videos that were popping up. It was between a contest of some sort, or a porno. Turns out, it’s not a porno and they are looking to throw another big contest. This time around, they have asked 10 of the worlds top riders to assemble teams to compete in The Pool. Each rider will be picking 3 members to be on their team. The details of the contest haven’t been released, but the 10 captains have been.
Jason Phelan, Van Homan, Dennis Enarson, Ruben Alcantara, Harry Main, Brian Kachinsky, Garrett Reynolds, Sebastian Keep, Alex Kennedy and Drew Bezanson will all pick three more riders.
The full teams will be released soon with Van and Jason’s teams being released at some point today. This is going to be good.
Edit: Here’s Jason and Van’s picks…
1. Jason Phelan (IRL)
2. Kriss Kyle (UK)
3. Geoff Slattery (US)
4. Ben Hennon (UK)
1. Van Homan (US)
