Over forty riders registered in the cozy stove heated Stash Cabin to participate in this unusual contest. The riders showed amazing skills, especially considering the difficulty of throwing technical tricks on wooden features.
At the end, Declan Power claimed the Stash Gathering men’s title taking home a Season Pass as well as Stash Limited series board and other goodies, followed by Michael De Rose in 2nd and Antoine Aubri in third place. The women also showed some serious skills and Sarah Fish took first place which earned her a Season Pass, followed by Sabrina Burham and Diane Jouvet. All top three placed riders earned also a limited edition Stash board as well as more goodies.
The Youth category literally killed it! The kids under fifteen years old took on every feature the men did, showing stylish tricks and stomping them like pros. At the end Alex Briand claimed the top spot winning the Season Pass followed by Tim Baisamy and Raphael Villa winning a backpack filled with Anon Goggles and other cool stuff. The discovery of the day was the 10 year old Nicola Cleusix who did not make it on the podium, but deserves props for taking all obstacles with perfect style and landing everything despite of his young age. Watch out for this kid in the future!
