High Wycombe skatepark hosted round 14 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series. This was the last competition in the 2017 series. The Ramp it Up event put on by the City of Kalamunda was a great day. With 59 competitors spread out over the three disciplines of bmx, scooter and skateboard and having a great number of spectators it was nothing but radness all day. Who would have guess that having a skatepark competition in December you would have problems with rain, but there was. On a few occasions the competition was halted while it rained for a few minutes. Once the skatepark was dry again it was all systems go. The day was seamless with all of the disciplines alternating their time on the skatepark. Going into the day Luke Tooze and Jack Carwardine in the bmx open class only had 5 points between them for the year end title. It was close going but this year Luke has seen much progression. With large gaps and fast riding taking place he took the win in the open class and the year end title. We would also like to thank our other supporters Colony BMX, The 4 skateboard company, Modus, Grit scooter, and The City of Kalamunda. The 2018 series kicks off at Bassendean skatepark on the 16th February.
