Stettler’s Jared Fraser had a heyday competing with his opponents as he came out on top, placing first in the intermediate category of the North American International Scooter Association (ISA) Championships on Saturday, April 30 at Town Centre Skatepark in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
Prior to the final round there were five competitions across North America that served as qualifying rounds.
Beating 20 riders, Fraser won the competition in his category.
Each competitor had to do two one-minute runs to show the judges their best, with the riders being judged on difficulty, diversity, consistency and style.
Although Vermin Scooter is Fraser’s local sponsor, his international sponsor is Madd Gear Pro (MGP) and he is on the Canadian FLOW team.
There are only two riders in Western Canada that rides for MGP and Jared is one of them.
At 12, Fraser is quite advanced than many of the kids pursuing the sport.
“Jared started scootering at the age of eight,” said Heidi Fraser, his mother. “His passion and dedication to the sport are like nothing I have ever seen, he never quits, and is continuously working on the next big trick.”
