Texas Ski Ranch Press Release

TSR has opened the summer with their best party to date. Despite the forecast of thunderstorms, the crowds enjoyed 3 days of sunshine and action sports that included competitions in wakeboard, skateboard and motocross. Cablestock utilized TSR's entire property to host these tournament while still being open for the public to ride with the competitors between events. The formula created a liad back atmosphere that was just what Cablestock is about. The car show, air show and bikini contest added to the incredible weekend.

The action kicked off Friday night with Steve Halapain walking away with the title in the 10 inch rear wheel expert class. Other winners included: Cody Hawes, Jordn Blake, Anthony Ojeda, Michael Haby, Haydn Franklin and Royce Gaida.

The wakeboard events were dominated by Texas riders who won both the Cable and Boat Wakeboard Competitions. Gabe Lucas continued to impress by leading after the preliminaries and then taking home the top spot in the finals. Gabe is quickly proving that his trip to the finals in the first Pro Tour stop was not a fluke. Keith Lidberg and Wes Briscoe finished second and third respectively. Trying to continue growth in the sport of wakeboarding, TSR used yet another new and untested format for the preliminary rounds. Each rider was forced to participate in three disciplines: Structures-won by Gabe Lucas, Wake Tricks-won by Joey Bradley and Double Ups-Won by Gabe Lucas. These scores were totaled to figure out the qualifiers for Sunday's finals. The riders all liked the format, even those who figured out what areas they need to work a little harder in.

The Pro Cable wakeboard event was won by newcomer, Tom Fooshee. Tom, known more for his boat wakeboard abilities, recently began working at TSR and has impressed everyone with how quickly he has picked up cable riding and vaulted to the top of the scene. Tom who was second of nine off the dock, threw down two incredible runs. Mixing in the kickers, sliders and air tricks on the TSR cable. Event organizer, Blake Hess, said "That is one of the best performances I have ever seen in a cable competition." Tom's run consisted of a Double S Bend, S-Mobe, Swith HS 720, 540, Pete Rose, Method Crow Mobe and much more. Similar to the format use in the boat lake, Tom's versatile run proved that you must be a great all around rider to progress with the sport of wakeboarding. Proving that point even more, Keith Lidberg, took home another check with second place finish in both the cable and boat competitions. New tour points leader, Josh Rice of Canyon Lake Texas, finished third.

Wakeskate saw two new faces in the top spots. Justin Dahahn won the cable competition. Brett Little took second and performed one of the most memorable moments of the weekend, by successfully landing an indy toe side back roll dock start on the cable. The boat wakeskate comp was extremely close. In the end Sammy Woodson edged out Ryan Doyle, with an impressive backside big spin. Stefan Shriewer placed third.

What arguably might have been the most exciting event of the weekend, the Skateboard contest closed out the weekend festivities. The jam session format pitted 5 skaters against each other, on the park at the same time for five minutes. The top two advanced while the rest went to the LCQ (Last Chance Qualifier). 25 skaters battled it out for 12 spots in the finals, 10 earned the easy way and 2 through the LCQ. With DJ Jack Scanio spinning throughout the comp, the crowd enjoyed the constant action of a jam session format. In the end experience won out with former champion Andy Mack adding another title to his list of accomplishments. TSR's own Steve Moreno took second and Jeff Little took third. Garrett Young, the events youngest competitor at age thirteen, took fifth.

As Cablestock 2005 came to a close, athletes, spectators and the staff were drained. The repeat athletes that fly in from all over the country were left with just enough energy to float the Guadalupe River. A tourist attraction that has become a tradition for many of the competitors who continue to make the trek back to TSR for events like this one. TSR would like to thank our sponsors who help us put on events like this one: MasterCraft, Burger King, Liquid Force, Jet Pilot, DaHui, No Fear, Nissan Cars and Trucks, KNGB sports radio, Classic Honda, Reeg, Balistik Skateboards, Thump, and Sik 50's.
