Event Coverage: Battle At The Bridge 2014 – Pt. 1

Photography By: Mike McConnell and Jesse Schinkel - The Dub Dynasty

Occasionally people ask what I think makes a great show, and my answer typically centres around variety and  the feel of a backyard BBQ.

As someone who likes a wide variety of cars and tuning styles few things are better than an event where a minitruck is parked a stones through away from a hot rod, that is parked just around the bend from an Import, and so forth and so on.

Since it’s in Calgary and I’m here in Toronto I’ve never been to Battle At The Bridge personally but Mike McConnell has been submiting coverage for a few years now and with each passing year Battle looks more and more like a show I would thoroughly enjoy.

Trucks, cars, rods, lead sleds, imports, and vip cars, Battle has got everything along with a loyal following, and awesome venue, and a variety of sponsors. Jesse and Mike took a huge number of photos so expect at least one more follow up post to this one.

If it were possible for me to own all the wheeled objects I want I would totally own a Honda minibike

While the DSM scene here in Toronto seems have hit a sharp decline Calgary looks to be keeping it real

Personally this to me will always be VIP, tasteful, minimal camber and subtle body mods

Thought it might not be everyone’s style I’m pretty sure none of you will question the quality of work
