Last year Knights Wake was dethroned by a very strong Baylor Wake at Baylor's own cable park. This year could be a whole new story. For starters, there are fewer teams who competed in 2016 in order to qualify for Cable Nationals. The rainy spring seemed to have turned a lot of teams away from qualifying.
Let's hope for great weather for nationals as we are changing pace and taking the Championships to Quest ATX and the Austin Texas outdoor vibe. This means no cushy hotel rooms or cabins. No hot tubs or fancy parties. This is a camping outdoor weekend for all!
Teams and spectators can camp at the park from Friday til Sunday with us. Their are bathrooms and hot showers on site, as well as food and a nice big bon fire. Camping is free for register teams, and $10 per person for guest.
College Cable Teams must have competed in a regional qualifier in order to compete for nationals. Each team will have up to 8 rider slots to fill with 1 of those slots being a female rider. Wakeskaters can compete with the other 7 riders. Teams will be scored as teams for an overall score.
Saturday afternoon will be the Individual Cable Nationals for Advanced, Open and Women riders. Entry fees are $50 a person and will be competing for top rider in the country. These riders will win awards and prizes as well.
Teams must register in order to secure a spot. Registration is due by Sept 7th 2016.
Event kicks off with all teams riding Saturday Sept 17th at 8am. Top 4 teams will qualify for Semi Finals on Sunday morning, followed by the finals right after.
Spectators are free to watch and hang out.
