Matt Buyten Takes Two in Denver
Hometown Favorite Darin Connet Didn't Disappoint His Fans

DENVER, Colo. (January 24, 2004) - Hometown favorite Darin Connet from Littleton, Colo. electrified the crowd and receiving a standing ovation after his final run Friday night. Connet's score of 91.3 was enough to take over the hot seat from Adam Jones but was not enough to hold off 2000 IFMA Champion Jake Windham. Windham's score of 91.9 won over the crowd and the hot seat. The last rider to compete was Matt Buyten, the night's number one qualifier. Buyten pulled the back flip, the base jump and numerous no-handed-lander combinations to take his fourth win of the 2004 IFMA season.

Buyten, Saturday's fifth place qualifier took the hot seat from Mike Mason with a score of 92.9 and held it until the number one qualifier Windham took the track. Windham's hands got mixed up on a suicide disco can and barely had enough time to land, then again got mixed up in the air attempting his next trick. That was enough for Buyten to keep the hot seat and take home another win in IFMA competition. Hometown favorite, Connet finished in second after losing his trick list in mid-air one minute into his run.

"I didn't know what I was doing half way through my run, so I tried landing everything no handed, that way I wouldn't get deducted for repeating a trick, said Darin Connet after his final run on Saturday night.
