Last March, Dr. Rob Gaffney manipulated 20 innocent freeriders into playing Shane McConkey's highly inappropriate game of G.N.A.R. (Gaffney's Numerical Assessment of Radness) for a 25,000, winner-takes-all prize. The result was utter debauchery slathered all over Squaw, Mammoth, Kirkwood, Snowbird, and every road in between.
