The Night Harvest 2016
Saturday evening saw the return of the most prestigious dirt jump competition in South Africa, The Night Harvest, for BMX & MTB.
Locals & loads of international pro's made it out to Hout Bay for the evening which promised to deliver some of the best riding to Cape Town. Riding masterfully sculpted trails into the night with lights set up makes it such a unique event. The crowds swarmed in & 1500 people came to absorb the craziness.
With so many amazing riders, the crowd was treated to many tricks that had never been done in SA & a few that had not been done anywhere in Africa before. Kevin Peraza blew everyones minds with combos most only see in edits online & ended up taking 1st for the 2nd year in a row. Declan Brooks flowed through the trails effortlessly all evening, tricking every jump all evening & earned himself 2nd. The local hero Malcolm Peters was on form & stomped a triple whip into 3rd.
After riding the line of jumps, the boys moved over to the big trick jump for best trick. BMX & MTB together & just sending the most massive tricks they could. Tricky Nicky fought hard & managed to tame the beast & landed a flip barspin to tailwhip, but that wasn't enough to take it from Declan Brooks, who did a flip triple barspin.
The Trails Crew & Monster Energy really out did themselves this year & was by far the best Night Harvest to date!
