This past weekend saw Am and Pro BMX riders gather to take part in the Redemption Jam 2015 contest. This was the first contest to be held at the Stoneridge Skate Park in Joburg in over six years. The contest was well received from all that took part and resulted in positive vibes throughout the day.
The Am’s were the first to take to the park progressing through their runs and putting down their biggest tricks. In the end it was Doran Mathewson who took home 3rd place, Matt Meyer in 2nd and Martin Dejager in 1st.
The Pro jam saw a host of massive tricks and lines. Barspins, Double Whips, Flairs and huge gaps were all thrown in for good measure. Vincent Leygonie walked away with 3rd place while Matty Duffy and Kyle Kiewiet took 2nd and 1st respectively.
The Best Trick contest was a crowd favourite. Vincent Leygonie pulled a Cliff Hanger, Kyle Davey landed a Barspin Drop but it was Matty Duffy’s Double Tailwhip to Tyre Tap that took the win.
Thanks to the sponsors for making this event possible; Monster Energy, BMX Direct, Mongoose and Dope Industries.
