kellyyfise2 You read that right, Kelly McGarry is on the invite list for Crankworx Whistler VW Trick Showdown. It looks like last year, where he went to both Crankworx Colorado and the Highland Jam in the hopes of qualifying (which he did in Colorado). He can now chill a little knowing that he's in, although he still needs to qualify for the Slopestyle... But he's not really chilling, comps every other weekend, different countries every other day. Stay up to date with the McGazza's whereabouts on his blog. The following athletes will be invited to the 2009 VW Trick Showdown:

Amir Kabbani Germany Andreu Lacondeguy* Spain Andrew Taylor* USA Ben Boyko* Canada Benny Korthaus Germany Brandon Semenuk* Canada Cam McCaul* USA Cameron Zink* USA Darren Berrecloth Canada Graham Agassiz Canada Greg Watts  USA Jamie Goldman* USA Kelly McGarry New Zealand Lance McDermott* UK Paul Basagoita* USA Sam Pilgrim UK Trond Hansen* Norway Tyler McCaul USA *denotes automatic invitation to Monster Energy Slopestyle
