Grass Roots Tour Stop 3 – Hannam’s Wake Hub, 14th June ‘14

Hannam’s Wake Hub joins the Grassroots Tour Party

HWHGRT2014-11

It’s only fitting that a crew of the most passionate wakeboard and skate fans should have their own park to help pass on this passion. It also, therefore, makes complete sense that this same crew should be apart of the entity that is pushing, promoting and growing the sport more than any other here in the UK, the Grassroots Tour. Well this very situation arrived when Ben, Jess and Terry Hannam, those folks behind the wondrous park that is Hannam’s Wake Hub, hosted their first ever stop of the Grassroots Tour in June.

Just Wake Park kick the Grass Roots season off

The weekend of the 10/11th May was a great stat to the season at Tattershall. A full weekend of riding was on with the Rider League boat contest on the Saturday and the first stop of the 2014 Grass Roots Tour on the Sunday.

43 riders turned up to ride, braving all the elements, for the start to the second Grass Roots Tour season. Luckily, the System 2.0 set-up at Just Wake is pretty sheltered and so didn’t suffer from the full on winds as the boat contest lake did. The wind and some showers aside, the riders pushed themselves hard all day, in the Grass Roots pro coaching sessions in place at every tour stop. Pros CK and Lee Debuse taking doing an expert job with every single rider, getting them ready for the afternoon’s competition.
