Erik Babcock 2x Duals Champion at 2022 Sun Valley Freestyle Spectacular

The Sun Valley Freestyle Spectacular provided a stellar showcase under bluebird skies on Roundhouse Jan. 29-30. SVSEF hosted the event, with more than 90 athletes competing from across the western region. Erik Babcock from the SVSEF Freestyle Team led the charge with a 1st place overall on Sunday in singles and pushed repeat for the win in men’s duals on Sunday to become the event’s two-time Duals Champion. Marek Ruttler landed in 8th place overall in Sunday’s duals. Tillie Babcock took home 3rd overall for the women in singles on Saturday and 6th overall in duals on Sunday. SVSEF had athletes on the podium in nearly every age group.

SVSEF Freestyle Program Director, John Grigsby said “It was great to see such a big turnout for this year’s Sun Valley Freestyle Spectacular. We’re incredibly grateful to Sun Valley for allowing us to build a world-class venue, and to all the parents and volunteers for their support over the course of the event. We had 30-plus athletes from SVSEF, which is the largest showing ever from the club. It’s exciting to see the growth in our program at every level with kids across all age groups from never-ever to the defending duals champion.”
