2012 Rip Curl Canadian Cable Championships

Posted: Aug 30, 2012

Yannick Thibault took the gold medal at the second Canadian Cable Championships held at the Beach Club in Pointe Calumet, Quebec. Riding the full cable system at the Beach Club, Thibault ascended to the top of the podium in the Men’s Pro Expression category.  His victory came in a very tough final heat including Manitoba’s Jess Polley and fellow Quebecois Ben Leclair who captured the silver and bronze medals respectively.

Thibault’s National championship victory is a vital launching point for his debut on the international stage later this month.  Thibault, and fellow Canadian rider Ashley Leugner will be competing in the IWWF Cable World Cup in Tokyo, Japan. The event will be one of the premiere events leading up to the World Championships in November and provides a relatively rare opportunity for Canadian athletes to ride for Team Canada.  The World Cup tour is one of the centrepieces to the IWWF effort to have cable wakeboarding added to the Olympic Games in 2020.

In other cable events, Braden Ioi (Toronto, ON) took the top spot in the pro wakeskate competition.  He was joined on the top of the pro podium by Carmelle Oullett in the women’s expression category.

The Canadian Cable Championships, is the second version of the event after the 2011 edition in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  The event featured over 60 riders competing in the exciting and relatively new discipline of cable riding.  With a mix of air and rail tricks, the riders wowed a crowd of thousands at the Beach Club facility in Pointe Calumet, just north of Montreal.
