The Tasman Skatepark Tour 2016 edition concluded in spectacular fashion at Richmond on Saturday with a strong field of riders stomping trick after trick, much to the delight of the 200-strong audience.

The unstoppable Alex Moreu was once again in sublime form, and completed a clean sweep in the junior skate section. Reggie McDonald and Alex Scott continued their duel in the senior skate section, but this time it was Alex who prevailed. The field was particularly strong in the open skate section, and it was Ben Short who demonstrated a full arsenal of tricks to secure first place. 

Nikita Turu also showed why she was the most consistent scooter rider on tour, notching up her sixth straight victory. Blenheim’s Samuel Adcock was too good in the senior scooter section, with Blake Eden registering his third first placing in the open scooter section.

On the bike, it was Jye Wilson who nudged Korbyn Wilson off the top rung in the junior bmx, with Tom Basset-Eason massive airs in the senior bmx to claim his forth victory of the tour. Ryan Dando was the regular smooth operator we have come to expect, blowing away the competition in the open bmx, including an impressive series of tail whips.

So after six skateparks, 54 competition heats, 221 competitors and a heap of bails, rails, some fails but mostly prevails, here are the overall champions from the 2016 Tasman Skatepark Tour:

  • Skate: Alex Moreu
  • Scooter: Nikita Turu          
  • Bike: Korbyn Wilson

A big thank you goes out to everyone involved in making the tour a rip-roaring success. From the competitors that jumped themselves out of the parks, to the spectators who cheered them on, to the parents that drove them around, to the event support staff that ensured that everyone was kept safe, had fun and enjoyed - we salute you!
