Scenes From: PALAPALOOZA! 10/6 2018
USA’s Winter Series II kicked off with a BANG! Attracting athletes of all levels, including some of the most prominent PRO riders! We were really happy to see the level of support as so many families and even some of the local Scoot OGs and Sponsors came to hang out and enjoy the day. Notably Raymond Warner, Cam Ward, Andrew Broussard (Proto & River), Pierre Camoin (S1 Helmets & Fuzion), Shelby Grimnes (Fuzion), our Platinum sponsor Tony Portelo of PORTTECHCO, Affliction Industries, Keith (Tortoise Pads), Lacey Anderson (Tucson Scooters), and of course photographer to the stars of the scoot scene, Craig Purkis of Purkoscootpics! Special shout out to the volunteer Scoot Mums who helped us keep registration, prizes & scoring on track! Sarah Parks, Jeannie Ortiz & Donna Oldham! You ladies rocked it, thank you!
Add to that our star lineup of judges: Clayton Lindley, Derek Seay & Nolan Shoemaker, throw in a dash of MC Chris Farris and our sub judge (filling in when Chris rode in Pro) Mr. Anthony Richley, and it was quite the star studded day! But apart from the great turnout, it really came down to some GREAT riding and sportsmanship that made the day fantastic! FULL RESULTS HERE Lots of riders challenging themselves by riding up a level, which helped all riders enjoy the day as the levels were more balanced and skills were within a reasonable margin across the board! Plus some cool tunes and good vibes added to the ambiance. All in all a great first event! But we can do better! If you haven’t yet done so, take a minute to complete our event survey and let us know how we can make these events even better. PALAPALOOZA SURVEY
We thank everyone who came out to support the event and the sport! When times are tough in an industry it takes everyone to do what they can (ride, watch, sponsor, produce events, buy products, but mostly just keep the faith, support and promote each other in a positive way) to make sure the industry recovers and prospers for our riders & all who support them. And our sport is really good at doing just that so LET”S GO! We will see you in Tucson for Stop 2: AZ TURKEYJAM! Nov. 17th! Until then, #getoutsideandride - Team USA
