Mandurah Action Sports Games – BMX halfpipe battle jam


The 2014 Mandurah Action Sports Games went off in a large way with about 120000 people coming through the event over the two days. Australia’s largest action sports event hosted a round of the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation worlds cup along with a pro only skateboard, scooter and bmx competitions at with so much more over the two days. There were two bmx competitions, the halfpipe battle jam and the park competition. The BMX halfpipe battle jam was an awesome competition, with 12 riders all wanting to take a share in the $4250 prize money. The format was simple, drop in and ride, throw down some radness and stay in the jam. With so many good riders the judging was tough. By the time the top 6 were ready to drop in it was going to be anyone for the win. Laurence Bakewell we throwing down hammers and was looking good for the win but in round 2 he let things slip a bit and was droped out along with Jacob DeAbrue. The top 3 hit it and hit it hard, Brock Horneman had large flairs and smooth flow and he took the win and $1500. Second place went to all round good guy Nathan Phelps with good use of the ramp, flair invert to flair turndown was just some of the radness that he unleashed for his second place and $1000. Dylan Schmidt took out the third place and $700, his superwhips were just crazy.
