Our 2nd ever fastest gate competition went down at stop#3 at Hampton BMX in Hampton Virginia and it was awesome. For this event we pit every rider of all ages against each other from youngest to oldest(we we tried to lol!). Riders are timed from the moment the gate drops till they get to the 30 foot line. Whoever has the shortest time gets to sit in the “Captains Chair” until the following riders can beat the shortest time. The competition continues until all riders have gone, whoever has the shortest time wins. Riders only get one try to get the best time.
Young Blake Powell set the tone early by getting in the captains chair and staying there for a while. Then Parker Respas hopped in the captains chair with Blake with a tied time of 2.10Secs.
After a bunch of riders tried to beat Parker and Blake’s time, James “Zigity” Zajd came out the gate quick and took over and became the new captain with 1.90secs.
It was looking like Zigity was gonna come home with another win but Kris Creech stopped that from happening with a perfect snap out the gate giving him a fast 1.89secs.
