Dante’s 2016 Battle for Britain

By | Latest News | No Comments

The Battle for Britain is on again this Saturday 12th November at Adrenalin Alley in Corby, UK and current UK Champion and Apex Pro Scooters Team rider Dante Hutchinson is out to defend his 2015 title.

Dante who is 16 years old and whose scooter career has taken him to events in Australia, America, Spain, France, Germany, Czech Rep, and Denmark. But his proudest moment was winning the 2015 UK Title. “It was my dream to Hit the UK Champion Stage, It was the best day of my life” Said Dante when recalling the 2015 Battle for Britan event.  When asked about his thoughts for this weekend Dante said “Hopefully If I get hyped enough I will  try one of my newest tricks  that I have learnt and touch wood it works with the judges”.

Dante started riding back in 2009 when he was 9 years old starting out with a JD Bug Foldy, his first trick was a tailwhip. Since then Dante has become one of the World’s best scooter riders. Dante was ranked 2nd in Europe in 2015 and has finished in the Top 10 at the ISA World Title Events in both 2015 & 2016.

Dante’s advice for those younger riders getting started is that all it takes is putting work in towards your goal and pushing yourself to the best of your ability. Believe in yourself and never think of the worst think of the best. The only competition is you!.

Dante is proudly sponsored by Apex Pro Scooters, Scooter Hut and we wish him the best of luck this weekend defending his UK Champion title.
