The first annual Crack the Vault Challenge at Brimacombe on Saturday March 17th was a success. With almost $2,000 in prize money and around $2,000 in hardgoods  giveaways, the riders were stoked.  It was unanimous that even with the conditions given to us coming into the event, the setup was unreal. The course had six hits, including 2 up features, 2 urban down features and 2 booters. 

Thirty-one riders competed with many spectators taking in the days event. 686 was present on the hill with their t-shirt press and all the riders and onlookers were pumped to get free custom t-shirts being made for them. The headline sponsor was Oakley donating half the prize money as well as numerous pairs of goggles and glasses, as well as ROME, 686, Monster Energy and Brimacombe’s Slopeside Retail Store.
