Totally awesome event and the team did great, placing top 3 in all our major competitions, best Uninats results so far. Flatland had a great audience in the middle of Civic, Canberra’s city centre where Chris Champion made it to the nail biting finals vs Waylon Batt and was able to bring the 2nd place ribbon home, Mike Padial also scored a cheeky 3rd place. High jump was another classic rolling hop vs side hop (Chris vs Mike) with the boys taking the top 2 spots, a new Australian record was also set by Waylon Batt and then topped again by Joel Gleeson, who came third. Trials which was held at Mount Stromlo, went to Mike Padial who finished all the available lines with the fastest time, closely followed by Joel Gleeson which took the boys to yet another intense Uninats trials tie-breaker. Street which was held at the amazing Belconnen skatepark, with special guest judge Matty P, was an awesome day filled with INSANE riding, Sam La Hood continues to bring home the gold for female Street, knocking out the Aussie female Street champion Ebony O’Dea who came second. Chris Huriwai finally takes another loss but still takes a respectable 2nd place. Waylon Batt was the star of the day, landing some HUGE bangers in finals AND prelims, including some tricks he’s never landed before like quadflip and fifth down a 5 set (wuuuut!?), Aussie vet Dan Cowling was also there to snipe 3rd place.
More coming soon.
