Steve Bayless Vert Session

Riverside Park, St. Neots

St. Neots in Cambridgeshire is home to the best outdoor public vert ramp in the UK. It’s a good competition size (14ft) metal ramp which has had a new skatelite surface since March 2016. This is a new addition to the series and one of only two outdoor competitions on the 2016 series (with Southsea being the other).

With the train station only minutes away and a short drive from the A14, it’s easy to get to so fingers crossed for some quality skating weather!

“The Steve Bayless Vert Session”

The competition has taken it’s name from a local hero of the park who suddenly and tragically died in 2016. Steve was a kingpin of the skate scene at St Neots and played a pivotal role in working to get the skatepark back in shape. For this reason and many more, with his family’s kind permission we have decided to name our competition after him.

Organised by locals Sam Curtin and Joe Gacon, and sponsored by brands from Lincolnshire based skate distributor G House, this is a real East Midlands gig. See you there for a summer session…
