UK Champs rips Corby!

There’s no doubt about it, Corby’s Adrenaline Alley hosted the best UK turnout for years this weekend as the UK Championships organised by the UKSA provided the hottest skate comp since the days of Radlands. The semis were the tip of the iceberg for a final that had basically everything in terms of gnar and technical prowess. Vans ripper Chris Oliver took the street honours with an array of hammers that included a double backside flip over the entire middle section of the course followed by Ross McGouran and Kris Vile, who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. It was seriously close.

Bristol’s Dan Wileman won the best trick in the street with a massive ollie over the gap to tailslide down the hubba with a bigspin to get him out. All done at mach 10!

This was backed up by a Vert final that left jaws wide open fueled by the future of British Vert skaters who hucked out back to back 540’s, tech steez and head high airs. Sam Beckett won the honours for his continuous bangers across the various Vert series comps throughout the year with 13 yr old Sam Bosworth (yes really) and the young Alex Halford all taking British Vert to another level.

Claire Alleaume put the comp on the map for the ladies, no surprises there though as she simply rips. Her skills were closely followed by the North’s Lois Pendlebury and and the South’s Lucy Adams who was also riding with a fractured elbow!

This all made for the best UK comp in years. Overall this weekend witnessed an amazing turnout, fantastic organisation and good times for all.
