Monster and Under Armour present War of Rails at Bear Mountain, February 23-26

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

War of Rails is set to return to Bear Mountain, CA for the third straight year, February 23-26, 2012. Coming off two successful go-rounds, the event is poised to be bigger and better than ever with the heftiest prize purse yet—$20,000—on the line. Additionally, changes have been made to the schedule: An amateur event will now be held as a qualifier for a pro showdown. Furthermore, a weather day has been included to the event schedule allowing organizers to be flexible in the event of inclement weather.

Here's what to expect: Sunshine, hot dogs, Land Sharks on the patio, live DJs, and absolute rail destruction by many of the sport's top athletes on one of the year's most progressive features. Surely, we're in for yet another highlight event. For coverage from last year's War of Rails, see our post here: http://frsk.me/0ux.
