With Ultimate X & The Night Harvest the previous 2 weekends The Rich Ditches was the 3rd & last comp of the BMX madness & it definitely didn't disappoint! Wayne, Seth & crew got to work well before cutting wood to make some ramps & spice the ditch up a bit. On the menu was a curved wallride, big box jump, huge vert wall, sub box & a few ditch extensions. With Baz Keep, Kevin Kalkoff, Ben Hennon, Matt Priest, Alessandro Barbero, Paul Ryan, Greg Illingworth & Malcolm Peters on the list of riders we were in for some serious riding.

It was a scorcher of a day & any spot of shade was a goldmine, but it meant that the ditch was dry & looking good to go. Guys started warming up early to test the new obstacles while the finishing touches were done. Jason started off with an unlucky 5 to jack knife & improved his smile a bit. Luckily other than that there were no serious injuries besides a bit of skin deposited in the Ditch bank. Once everyone was warmed heats were organised & the stunting began. Anyone that's been to the ditch knows it's rougher than a rasp, so you really want to be sticking your shit. In spite of this, the riding was probably the best & craziest I've ever seen at a comp in SA & was a real treat to witness.
Feel free to feast, but please leave these eggs in their nest. Thanks
Huge thanks to Wayne & Seth for all their hard work organising one of the best events I've had the pleasure of absorbing! Not only that, but for keeping us hydrated, feeding us & hooking up tents for everyone.

Thanks to all the gents for making it a rad weekend, she was a special one!
