Esteban Cabral Named Colorado’s Best Bricklayer

Lakewood, CO – The best masons in Colorado came together to test their skill, speed and stamina by battling to see who could build the biggest and best 26-foot-long brick wall in one hour. The competition was one of several SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® Regional Series competitions to be held across North America in 2020. The winner of the each regional qualifies to compete in 2021 World Championship at the World of Concrete expo in Las Vegas.

10 teams of masons and tenders lined the arena at Summit Brick Company in Lakewood, CO ready to prove they’re the best craftsmen in the region. Mason Esteban Cabral and mason tender Óscar Gausin of Denver, CO took home top honors with a brick count of 748 and no errors. The masonry team also won the coveted SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN award, which goes to the mason who built the best wall. In total, Cabral and Gausin won a free trip to Las Vegas for the World Championship, $1100 in cash ($750 for first place, $350 for TOP CRAFTSMAN), a $200 gift card from Ford Trucks, a Marshalltown tool bag, Stabila Level and the title, “Colorado’s Best Bricklayer.”
