DarkFEST 2018

The massive Freeride event that was DarkFEST took place at the new Hellsend Dirt Compound in Stellenbosch, South Africa back on the 10th February.

The course was conceptualised and created by Sam Reynolds, Nico Vink and Clemens Kaudela for 12 invited riders to bring their ‘A’ game and fight it out for the competition win.

Overall, Sam Reynolds took the Spank Whip-off win over the 90 foot beast and Nico Vink took the best style award.

We’re still awaiting the official highlights (they generally take a month or so to come out) but, while we’re waiting, I’ve seen Wayne Schell’s post on the Ride, Rate, Review YouTube channel and he’s got some amazing footage of the riders in action.

If you’re wanting more, the official DarkFEST weekly preparation vlogs (plus more) are over on the FEST series Youtube channel.

Plenty of stuff to get your mirror neurones firing.

If you’re going to take the time to practice, practice like the elite.
