This year’s contest at the steel curbs didn’t bring many surprises but did bring some excellent skating and some kick ass lines. Al Yorke successfully defended his title but got a surprise out of the competition he had this year. The open category was the closest ever, with phat runs from Colin Johnston, Geoff Keough, Jan MacLean, Harry Doyle and Craig Davis. Scott MacDonald (kick-flip kid) gave three solid sessions to pick up first in the sixteen and older category. Timmy Cedgan’s crazyass kick-flip of the launch secured him a first place spot in the fifteen and under category and Brandon Porter won a close first in the twelve and under. As long as Jan MacLean is around, the scene will never die. Jan did a lot to make this contest happen and I thank him. Also, he still rips. He surprised me and many others. Here’s to the “King of the Hardcores” (well maybe Grandfather!). And there’s a younger generation for the older guys to pass the torch with pride to when that time comes.
CONTEST NOTES – al yorke still rules and it takes a crowd to prove it … colin johnstonhas progressed the most, by far this year with hiscock running second … bruiser got his name honestly … and last, people know when to leave after a competition, when it’s time to clean up.
FACTS – a reward is out for whoever beat sheldon … chris merritt is still as crazy as ever … I got robbed of a $1000 skins … gillard got robbed.
