Bispingen is the past and the Burton AM Tour is on the road with a new mission. Bring the pleasure of join, create and progress to the British soil.
After another day in the fridge all shaping and tuning was through and the park was ready to get rocked. Competition day, Saturday the 22nd of November: After the boarding time at the inscription was over, it seemed that only 29 British competitors were about to arrange this contest among themselves.
In the finals one wicked run followed the other but in the end it was Jamie Nicholls who grabbed the gold medal in the Junior Boys category with some awesome rail action on the Double-Kinked followed by a Cab Underfilp over the Kinked, a Backside 720 and a sick slide 180 on – 180 off on the gas pipe rail. Within the Junior Girls category the main protagonist and winner of the finals was Sophie Bradshaw-Turner. In the younger categories, the Youth’s, it was Gino Rupp and Katie Ormerod who convinced the judges with their skills and celebrated their second triumph on the current Tour.
With the second win on the Tour Jamie, Gino and Katie moved themselves into a brilliant position to become the Overall Tour Winner and snatch the BEO Package provided by the main partner Volvo and Burton.
The second stop of the Tour, a captivating battle between the British and the Dutch was a delightful feast. Yes ma'am we are hungry for some more “international cuisine”. Let’s see what Landgraaf offers on December 6th.
