With NASS just a couple of days away we are stoked to announce the confirmed Skate, BMX and Inline riders that will tear up the 2013 event. With two whole days of intense competition,the crowd is in for a treat…
With over 60 of the best international BMX riders competing for the £12,000 prize purse NASS BMX Pro will once again boast the absolute best in action sports on a Pro Course like no other.
This year in the BMX categories, NASS are proud to be welcoming the strongest Australian contingent in NASS history with Oz riders representing a massive 50% of the top ten spaces.
Hailing from Oz and making his NASS debut Ryan Guettler is the one to watch. A name consistently at the top Ryan will no doubt have the crowd cheering every time he drops. Having just landed the worlds first 1080 barspin, Logan Marin is another threat from down under, alongside Todd Meyn, Matt Whyatt and Brandon Loupos.
Elsewhere on the BMX riders list British rider Jack Watts is one hell of an up and coming teen who is not afraid to go big and keep an eye on Britain’s Francis Wright, Dean Cueson and Russia’s Greg Illingworth for what is to be a truly spectacular competition.
Interweaving with the BMX practice, qualifying and final schedules is NASS World Cup Skate, another competition that is simply unmissable. With a massive £12,500 purse up for grabs there is no doubt that the 103 confirmed skaters will be competing doggedly for the big prize and podium glory.
The Brits are repping hard with Josh ‘Manhead’ Young, Will Golding, Kris Vile and Ben Grove, just a few of the GBR names on this years list. NASS 2013 will see the return of the Welsh contingent Sam Pulley and Jake Collins who will once more give the rest of the competition a run for their money to get their piece of the pie.
Austen Seaholm (USA) is also confirmed to attend alongside Brazilian heavy weights Kevin Hoefler and Rodil Araujo Jr and one of Spain’s leading skaters Danny Leon.
The action sports don’t stop there with over 50 of the world’s foremost bladers confirmed for the Inline competitions.
CJ Wellsmore (AUS) is a name to remember. The Australian and NASS virgin is hotly tipped for this years event and is one of the sickest guys in blading right now. Watch out for Great Britain’s Nick Lomax, Jamie Stenner, Scott Quinn and Joey Egan, France’s Roman Albrate and Belgium’s Jeremy Suarez.
The Kingdom Crew manage Inline to the highest standard and have one hell of a show planed with ams, pros, pros final and the legendary Richard Taylor Best Trick Comp on the menu. It’s a crowd favourite so be sure to check it out.
