The Scion RAT Skate Tour just wrapped up another stop in Oklahoma City, OK. Check the recap below along with a video from this stop.
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – May 21st , 2013 – The 3rd stop of the 2013 Scion Regional Amateur Skateboard Tour (The RAT) took place on Saturday, May 18th at the Mat Hoffman Action Sports Park in Oklahoma City, OK. Sixty of the top amateur skaters in the region competed in street and bowl competitions for over $2500 in cash and prizes.
In the bowl comp, ten-year-old ripper Evan Doherty carved and spun his way to the top spot on the podium taking down two previous RAT Tour series champions. Pat Donivan took second place and 2012 overall points champion Will Cortez rounded out the top three.
In the street comp, 2013 overall street champ Dakota Camp bested 40+ riders to lock down 1st place. Camp was joined on the podium by Pat Donivan (who also took 2nd in the bowl comp) and Daniel Yeager in 3rd.
“It was a great event to wrap up the Spring leg of the series” said tour organizer Bill Geiger. “We dodged a bullet because one of the worst tornados in the states history rolled through very close to where the event took place just hours after we left town!”
