The 1997 Pioneer Comp was almost called off due to condensation, but when it eventually dried Mark Nicolson was on hand to capture the shredding which went down. Mark's edits are one of our favourite things on the web at the moment and this doesn't disappoint, with Rattray's winning run madness the icing on the cake. Press play and, depending on your age, get all misty eyed about how good these comps were or get an education in who was ripping on these shores when you were just a glint in your dad's ballbag!

Featuring amongst others Alex Moul, Nick Zorlac, Dan Cates, Lee Dainton, Dave Chesson, Mark Brewster, Alan Rushbrooke, Mike Manzoori, Rodney Clarke, Paul Shier, Tom Penny, Dave Allen, Matt Fowler, Chris Oliver, Will Gilbard, Greg Finch and John Rattray
