Wheels of Steel

Adrenaline Alley, Corby

Special opening time at 10am for vert practice!

Adrenaline Alley, the UK’s largest skatepark is also home to the Europe’s largest indoor vert ramp. At a massive 54′ wide and 13.5′ high, it even has a huge resin practice ramp attached to the side. The park has ramps too numerous to mention, plus a cafe, and nearby hotels.

In 2014 (which didn’t see a UK Vert Series leg at the venue), the ramp had a £3000 facelift which included a fresh surface, safety barriers, platform paint and fantastic new bleacher-style seating stand. These changes have made it one of the best vert competition venues in Europe.

Wheels of Steel is the name of the Corby leg of the vert series and is hosted by Mat Marlow. Get down and experience some serious top-level vert skating.

Round 1 – 2017 – Wheels of Steel

Wheels of Steel III is nearly here, and it’s coming in style. With a massive haul of sponsors backing the comp, now in it’s third year, it promises to deliver the kind of radness we are accustomed to expect from the series.

More info on Wheels of Steel event page.

Along with Vans, Protec and 187 Killer Pads as series sponsors, the following brands have stepped up to support the comp with very generous prize packages.
