WAYNE, Indiana (September 25, 2010) —
Dubbed the "Zack Attack" by friends and family who waved signs and
cheered him to a victory during tonight's MegaRamp ASA Triples
(Triples) event at Fort Wayne's Allen County War Memorial Coliseum,
Zack Warden (O'Fallon, IL) claimed his first ASA Entertainment event
title by beating favorite Brett Banasiewicz (South Bend, IN) in the
The competition was close and came down to the last run of the
event. Both men took spills on their first run of the two-run
finals; Warden crashed attempting a back-flip bike-flip and
Banasiewicz failed to complete a front-flip tail-whip. Knowing that
Banasiewicz was the event favorite having won the last two Triples
events (Augusta, GA and Sacramento, CA), and was performing before
an audience filled with his Washington High School classmates and
family, Warden knew it would take a great run to win. He threw a
360* bar spin tail-whip, back-flip bike-flip, then a double
tail-whip off the quarter-pipe and landed everything, surprising
himself and thrilling the crowd with the back-flip bike-flip which
he had never done.
"I've been working on that trick for the last three and half months.
I knew I had to pull that out to win," said Warden.
For his last run, Banasiewicz triple tail-whipped the first jump,
landed a cash roll over the second jump and double downside-whipped
the quarter-pipe, but slipped slightly and his feet hit the ramp. He
then regained his balance, finished the run and waited for the
results. Warden's skillful performance and Banasiewicz's slight
misstep put a new man atop the winner's podium.
"I feel good!" said Warden lifting the trophy above his head in
celebration. "I'm really pumped that I did the trick that I wanted,
and walked away with this sweet trophy."
Warden met Pat Casey (Yorba Linda, CA) in the semi-finals. Casey
recently placed second at the Triples event in Sacramento and
set to roll into the finals tonight, but with everything clicking
for Warden, the pressure was on. Casey fell in both of his runs and
had to settle for third place along with Colton Satterfield (Salt
who, not only for the second consecutive Triples competition, but
also for the second time tonight, was eliminated by Banasiewicz.
Satterfield first met Banasiewicz in the quarter-finals, then had to
best all of his opponent's in the Battle Back round to return to the
main competition, where he found himself matched against Banasiewicz
again, this time in the semi-finals. Satterfield's best semi-final
run was no match for the front-flip tail-whip, corked out 720* and
inverted flair that Banasiewicz executed, so he had to accept third
