Hometown heroes

Both Austin Hironaka (left) and Megan Ginter (right) are about as local as it gets here at Snoqualmie. These two learned to ride in these mountains and they can still be seen lapping on the regs. And it seems that the home court advantage helped them win big at the Ride Shakedown. Hironaka had his night at Friday's rail jam, winning first place and $5000. Ginter got that top spot in Saturday's final and also left $5000 richer. (Liam Gallagher)
