Pat Casey Victorious at The Night Harvest 2019

The Night Harvest is arguably one of the sickest dirt jump events on the planet and the 2019 edition was no exception. Some of the most notorious BMX and MTB riders were in town to compete on the perfectly primed Potato trails, with the picturesque mountains of Hout Bay in the background.

As the sun started to set, the riders made their way up the roll-in tower. The Night Harvest runs a little different to most contests, with a jam session format. This enables riders to work on those dream runs and makes the usually competitive vibe much more conducive for bringing out the best riding possible.

In the BMX division Brazilian, Leandro Moreira was no stranger to this type of terrain and sent it higher than any other rider on the night. His signature bag of tricks which included cranked Turndown Flips, Flip Double Whips, Triple Whips and the hugest dumped 360’s in the game saw him walk away with 3rd place.

Mike Varga was on fire finishing in 2nd place. The Canadian annihilated the course tech wizardry and burly combos. Not only did Varga dominate the line, he proceeded to Ice-Pick Bar the wall-ride at the bottom of the course, which was a first for the event!
