The Making of the Blading Cup Trophy: Sayer Danforth Creates a Masterpiece

What makes a competition unique are the elements that go into putting together a piece of art. Because, after all that truly is what a unique competition is. Anyone can hold a contest, have people gather, give each rider several run times, crown first through third, hand out a few prizes, and then call it a day. But, to go above and beyond when making the elements of a competition differ from others creates something individual in its own character. In the end, with all of the people involved and all of the hard work put into creating uniqueness, this said competition can grow into something bigger and stand out above the rest in a memorable way. After all, if you take this said competition and include unique features in a unique setting with the industry’s top pro riders who in their own minds are creating art with how they use each piece within the contest then right there you have just brought art to life. Well, something to this magnitude needs to be creative on all accounts from the setting and obstacles, to the invites and promotion, all the way down to the last detail. This year’s first annual Blade Cup spared no detail in creating a masterpiece when Jon Julio thought of something far out in a concept for the trophy. I mean, this is Blading, right? The end result… Well, you’ll just have to click down below and see for yourself.
