After last year’s successful debut of the Yardsale at Valdosta Wake Compound, there was plenty hype leading up to this year’s event last weekend. The best cable and features riders in the world along with a handful of up and coming hopefuls descended on to VWC last Thursday looking forward to weekend of riding. While last year’s contest focused solely on the multi-levelled Sesitec System 2.0 set-up, the main contest went down this year on the full sized system. Saturday morning 36 riders battled it out in 6 heats to make a 6 make final. Daniel Grant, William Klang, James Windsor, Liam Peacock, Dary Znebel and John Dreiling were given one run to lay down their best line. In the end, it was Liam Peacock who had to qualify on Friday morning, taking the W followed by William Klang and Dary Znebel.
New for 2018 was a team video event featuring team captains Steffen Vollert, Daniel Grant, Wes Jacobsen, Trever Bashir and Trever Maur picking their team out of a hat at random. The teams were given the entire weekend to film on the System 2.0 and full sized set-ups. The videos will be released in a few weeks online for everyone to watch.
