So the Scooter Hut Pro Scooter Series for 2018 has come to an end, and we had a blast!
This three event series brought 24 of the world's best riders together to compete for a $25k prize pool, making this Scooters' Biggest Prize!
Round 1 was held at Five Dock skatepark in Sydney. The course consisted of a three part bowl with two spines and plenty of vert sections. Many riders soon realised that maintaining speed was the key here because the minute you stopped or slowed down it was hard to get back. This round ended with the top 3 spots going to Chris Farris, Cody Flom and Leo Spencer.
With the 2nd and 3rd rounds taking place in Melbourne, the competitors and event crew embarked on a road trip. There were plenty of stops and sessions along the way at places like Canberra, Gundagai and Bonny Doon! How's the serenity?
Empire Ride was the location for Round 2 and it became obvious that some of the local riders knew this park like the back of their hand. The indoor park was a great spot for the pros to show off huge flip tricks and massive transfers. After some tough deliberation for the judges, Leo Spencer, Dylan Morrison and Chris Farris were the highest scored riders for this round.
The 3rd and final round was set to go down at Rampfest Melbourne. It was starting to get real that one of the riders was leaving the park with $15k that very day. Everyone was throwing down their best which also saw some hectic slams go down. Rampfest also has many sections of different styles so it was important for the riders to hit them all to maximise their scores. But after a insane day of competition the winners of the series emerged. 1st Leo Spencer, 2nd Chris Farris and 3rd Angus Hughes.
We had the best time ever at the Pro Series this year and send a huge thanks to the amazing sponsors, judges, hosts, competitors and everyone who watched at the events and on our livestream! We hope to see you all again in 2019!
