The weather wasn't on our side this weekend in Newquay for Canna BMX Baoardmasters 2018 Mini Ramp competition. There was lots of stop start action all weekend in between the rain and the wind. Luckily with the patience of the Skateboarders, the crowd, and the most importantly the riders we managed to get the contest done! Alfie Heming won the under 16s contest with some great flow and back to back tricks from the small part of the ramp to big airs on the 8 foot extension. Reef Way was a close second with a 540 and some 360 to fakies in between some good tech tricks.
