Keelan Phillips just hit me up with news of a contest he is having on Sunday 3rd November at the International Centre in Telford, UK.
If you can’t make the Fise and UCI world Champs this one could be for you.
Keelan says “The idea behind this comp is to bring back the excitement and fun, no judging for consistency, riders wont be marked down for attempts only for what they land, quality over quantity. The comp will be held on November 3rd, one class to see who the ultimate freestyler is. Qualifying will be 2 x 2 min runs, finals will be 1 on 1 battles. Hotel at a discounted rate if needed. And held at one if the biggest car shows in the UK! For any info please get in touch with Keelan on his social media or insta page @ultimatefreestylecomp.”
