Dylan Morrison Wins King of Park at ScootFest

The final event of the 2018 King of Kings competition was King of Park. This event, held at the legendary Adrenaline Alley in Corby, UK, ran a bit different than the first two. They had seven heats of three or four riders running in a soul jam format. Soul jam is a one-at-a-time format, but if a rider falls, they must exit the course and wait for their turn to come back around. This ensures a lot of flow and high energy in the competition. Watch the entire event right here, then keep reading for more analysis and highlights:

Only the top 5 riders from the qualifying heats were chosen to compete in a final 10-minute soul jam with a chance for one final banger after the clock ran out. The top 5 consisted of Dylan Morrison, Roomet Saalik, Cody Flom, Leo Spencer, and Jordan Clark. What a lineup!

Man, the finals were absolutely insane. Roomet really stood out to me. He was throwing down some really crazy 720 combos and even a few 1080s! He tried a World First for his final trick, a 360 backflip drop-in. My jaw nearly hit the floor, but unfortunately, he over-rotated by centimeters and ended up faceplanting pretty hard. But his runs were good enough for a second-place finish! Jordan rounded out the field.

I would have to say the highlight trick of the day was Dylan’s massive, ceiling-high, 540 flair barspin. It is such a hard trick to perform, let alone doing it as high as he did. Dylan had some other crazy tricks as well, and in the end he earned his first-place finish. Check out the highlights from him right here:
