Junior downhill competition saw a showdown between “Nicole Megalondis Foundation” driven by Yvenski(GO Kikki) and Tracy Lebrun’s “Flamer” with Yvenski taking 1st place. In 3rd was Joey Gale on his “Hammerhead” skateboard. (We have featured HeadCam GoPro video from Joey Gale we are working on).

The Slalom course is always a challenge, requiring a good handling cart and this year top marks go to The White Rocket, time was 34:41 seconds, Sun Dance Marine a close 2nd with a time of 34:54 and HG Christies “Real Deal” in 3rd with 37:24.
Showmanship honours went to the “Wizard of Oz” cart of Chloe(Dorothy) and Melia (wicked witch) Sweeting. From Nassau Caroline Alburys “Conch Army Fighting Breast Cancer” cart was 2nd with “Colonel Sanders” aka Tom Hazel of the Abaco Inn in his KFC chicken box in 3rd.
King of the Hill (overall) winner for 2012 was Christian Wilhoyte with his very fast, well handling homebuilt boxcart, “White Rocket”.
