Video: Hydro-Turf’s Mark Gomez Takes Multiple Wins in British Freestyle Event


Hydro-Turf team rider, Mark Gomez submitted filmed runs to compete in the 800 and 1200cc international classes in the virtual British Freestyle event. The event was live on Facebook on July 10 and the recap is available on the British Freestyle Championship page. Check it out. It’s very well done, and action packed without a lot of down time or filler.

Competitors from around the world submitted clips of their rides in their respective classes. The rides were viewed and scrutinized by a panel of world class judges stationed around the world. Criteria for judging was based on degree of difficulty, variety, execution, and how many tricks were completed.

Gomez placed 1st in the 1200cc International Class on his Rickter Ninja Pro V2. He picked up an award for the Best Trick on a 1200cc. He won for pulling off his super 540. That is one crazy trick! He also won the Best Trick in the 800cc Open International Class for making a big Barrel Roll on his Lite Class Super Jet. He grabbed 2cd place in the 800cc International Class. He couldn’t have landed all his super high-flying maneuvers without his Hydro-Turf traction!

It looks like the guys had a great time making their videos. The event looks like it was a lot of fun, regardless of being virtual. “These are weird times without many events,” writes Gomez. He is super stoked to support events like these that make it possible for everyone to compete.

Until all nations get back to competing on a world track, we will take in all the virtual events we can get.
