Dirt jumps, vinyl records and BMX riders, The Night Harvest 2016

February saw the return of South Africa’s most prestigious BMX and MTB dirt jump competition, and for the fourth year in a row Cape Audio College has sponsored The Night Harvest’s sound. As the name would suggest, the event is held at night in the sleepy village of Hout Bay, where a world-class, custom track has been built for the sole purpose of BMX and MTB riders.
