North East Skatepark Se­ries all wrapped up

Mansfield Courier - - Sport -

Ri­ley Adams was one of 12 com­peti­tors in his age group for scooter­ing and was ab­so­lutely rapt to find out that he had placed sec­ond to his great mate Ned But­ters.

Once each of the age groups for each cat­e­gory in BMX, Scooter and Skate­board­ing were pre­sented it was on to the Over­all Se­ries Win­ners.

Lis­ten­ing to the other cat­e­gory win­ners be­ing an­nounced, it was then time for the scooter sec­tion.

While a lit­tle ner­vous lis­ten­ing to them call­ing the name for third, sec­ond and fi­nally, first place – Ri­ley Adams.

“To say I was over the moon for him would be an un­der­state­ment,” Bec Adams, Ri­ley’s mum, said.

“He has worked very hard over the past 10 months and 13 rounds to fine tune his tricks as well as learn some new ones along the way.”

Ri­ley would like to thank his spon­sor, Catch­waves Aus­tralia, as well as all of his friends and fam­ily that have given sup­port along the way.

He would also like to say thank you to Josh Payne for tak­ing the time to come to ei­ther the lo­cal skate park or comps to take photos of him.

And last but not least his num­ber one fans, his Mum Bec, Dad Ben and older brother Bai­ley.

Up next for Ri­ley is fo­cus­ing on his next ASA event in Melbourne early next year, so need­less to say the Adams fam­ily will be spend­ing plenty of time at as many skate parks as pos­si­ble over the Christ­mas and New Year break.
