The winds fired up late in the afternoon on the second day of the event window delivering typical Hood River thermal conditions and the chance to get through the first could of heats. Riders in mens heats one and two both completed two features each; the left kicker and the Duotone Rooftop to the right.



Both heats displayed a high level of competition and it was an interesting spectacle for both the public and homie-stream viewers alike. There were standouts in both heats with Sam Light and Ewan Jaspan landing clean Heelside Backside 720s off the Slingshot Kicker and they both looked strong on the Duotone Slider as well. They rode in separate heats, but were matching each other trick for trick and it looks like theyre going to be watching one another closely as the comp continues. #Rivals



Then, both Noe Font and Christophe Tack stomped some big Frontside 720s whilst Sam Medysky and Alex Maes opted for a different approach; Sam stuck a clean tootsie on his third attempt and Alex went big with a Fronside 360 Stale Backside 180 off the Slingshot Kicker. Its clear that once again at this event, the riders abilities off the kicker will be a major deciding factor.



Competition is due to restart this morning local time if conditions allow. You can find the KPLs unofficial homie-stream on their Facebook page and youll get regular updates via their Instagram feed @KiteParkLeague.
