So, once again a load of smiling faces!
This years gap nation was set to be a banger with the return on the channel gap. Shout out to the DWA park crew at The Snow Centre who worked till the early hours digging through the mammoth landing and shaping the 32 foot jump.

Yes you read that right, from the lip of the jump to the knuckle measured out at 32 foot for the big jump and slightly smaller for the right side.

Everyone seemed to be having a great time and the atmosphere was set by the dj's and Mikee Cee on the microphone.

It was great too see so many people from beginners to sponsored riders throwing down in order to claim those extra points or on the spot prizes! In the end the results table looked like this:
