The first of The Feeders events went down in Portland, OR last weekend, and Team Vans showed up strong to support the local scene. The Feeders are exactly that—3 smaller rail jams sponsored by Zumiez to give local riders at each stop an opportunity to win an invitation to the main Downtown Throwdown events. The first DTTD is in Seattle on Oct. 9th with another in San Francisco on Oct 29th. Both contests have 25 riders competing for $8000!
