Drouin BMX Scooter skateboard skatepark competition


Freestyle now was recently at the Ficifolia Festival in Drouin Victoria to manage a bmx, scooter and skateboard skatepark competition. Drouin is a town in the West Gippsland region about 90 kilometres east of Melbourne. The Ficifolia Festival was a great event with a massive street parade taking place just before the skatepark competition got underway. The Baw Baw shire council put forward $500 toward prize money for the open BMX and scooter classes and with entry fees also added into the prize purse it was just over $800 to share. Drouin Cycles gave out some rad prizes for the afternoon competition. There was only a short time frame to run the competition in the afternoon to fit within the Ficifolia Festival schedule but in true professional manner Freestyle Now got the competition done in time with great accolades from the competitors, festival organizers and parents. In the early afternoon there was some rain about that made the skatepark wet. it dried up before the competition was due to start but this did scare a few competitors away. At the end of the afternoon when all was packed up and set to go home the clouds upened up and let it rain, and rain it did. We were so lucky to have had that time frame on lock. There was a great turnout from the town at the competition with one head count at 400 spectators.

At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competition there are three classes for competitors to enter, beginners (younger and still learning), intermediates (competitors with some good skills) and the open class (consistent and dials tricks) in the three disciplines scooter, skateboard and bmx. We would like to thank the contest supporters Community Bank of Drouin, Drouin Cycles, McDonalds Drouin, The Committee for Drouin, Baw Baw Shire Council for their efforts in supporting such a rad event.

Clockwise from top left – Julian Bailey was on fire during the competition and his skills were enough to score the 1st place in the scooter intermediate class – Dean Anderson was loving the jump box at Drouin so much so that he did this turndown back flip at a first trick in his second run – Justin Brebner took home the 1st place in skateboard intermediate, this transfer over to the other side was done flawless – Ollie Furguson with an Xup fly out on his way to win the bmx intermediate class.
