As usual, the vibe in Virginia Beach at ECSC was laid back, but the riding wasn’t. With the Vert ramp deck and the course roll-in sharing the same deck, some guys would do a vert demo run, pop out, and roll into the course. Ryan Guettler rode awesome all weekend with clicked turndown flips and turndown 3’s to land in 3rd place. Last year’s winner, Daniel Sandoval, ended up in 2nd and Kevin Peraza took the win. Kevin and Daniel are that new breed of rider that can whip and bar into and out of whatever they want. So many crazy combos from both done at height with classic variations thrown into the mix.
Due to strong winds, the results from Friday’s Qualifier would stand as the Final results. On Saturday, we shifted pieces of the course around for a makeshift mini-ramp tech session demo and added some flatland into the mix.
The highlight of the weekend was having Brett Banasiewicz at the event. He’s come such a long way since his accident last year. Steve Van Doren presented Brett with a custom Vans guitar and a check for 5 grand. Everyone was stoked to catch up with Brett.
Another fun event thanks to Steve Van Doren and Vans – first in BMX.
