Laced was back for another year at the UK’s biggest skatepark, Rampworx! Some of the best riders on the planet from 19 different countries flew in to compete for the number one spot. With hundreds of riders under one roof the level of skating was just insane, everywhere you looked next level tricks where going down.
The much deserved #1 spot was taken by UK Pro Steve Swain. Who produced an insane performance throughout his runs.
One things for sure, you don’t want to miss next year!

Indy Clayson has been coming to Rampworx Skatepark for the last few years killing it on his scooter. He is an all round rider who has been making a name for himself on the completion circuit winning the scoot gb event. So we invited him down to the skatepark for some closed door sessions so he could get some clips and he did not disappoint.
Be sure to remember the name as this guy is going places! You can find out more about Indys Scooter in this video review here.
The guys at DUB BMX came in to session our NEW Street Plaza in the skatepark. We have recently overhauled our existing Street Plaza with the help form the guys at Vans Rebel Jam and it’s gone down treat! We have added a bunch of new obstacles in there including a huge curved wall ride, concrete down ledge, triple hand rail and a bunch of other cool stuff. So naturally the guys at DUB, who have some of the best street riders on the planet riding for them wanted to come in a test this beast out.
Sit back and watch Benny L and the crew kill the new obstacles.
The NEW Limited Edition MFX Deck‘s from MGP have just landed in the Rampworx Shop so we thought we would give you our two cents on why these decks are on everyones wish list.
1. The MFX Deck has been tested by one of the best rider on the planet for over two years before production.
Now, there is not a much better seal of approval than having Ryan Williams throwing one of these MFX decks over a mega ramp day in day out on a world tour with Nitro Circus. If it can handle the demands of R Willys insane level of riding and 100 ft disaster gaps on a daily basis then you can be sure it can take whatever you can throw at it at your local spot and then some.
2. It’s the prefect width for street or park riding.
The MFX Deck ticks all the boxes in this area, no matter if your a street head and only hit up ledges and rails or if you prefer to bust out a flair at your local skatepark the MFX is built for it all. The super wide flat bottom available in two sizes 4.5″ and 4.8″ and comes in 21″ long which makes it perfect for locking into boardslides and lipslides. It also comes with boxed edges making those fingerwhips and grinds easier than ever before. The wide deck also ensures your feet have maximum room when grinding and with a nice subtle 3mm concave throughout the deck for extra grip and comfort. This is also a huge plus when you come to landing air tricks as your landing area just got that little bit bigger.
3. It’s super light and strong!
The tricky part when it comes to making a deck is finding the perfect balance between strength and weight. Too light and it bends and cracks and too heavy and it’s not rideable. With MGPs extrusion technology they have managed to get the MFX Deck weight to just 1.8Kgs! The MFX deck has shaved off all that extra weight found in traditional older decks but without compromising on the strength and reliability that MGP has become famous for. All the stress points in the deck have been reinforced to give you a guaranteed solid ride and it even comes with a new Scalloped 3D Forged 84 degree DownTube!
4. It’s worth way more then £100!
Now some people think £100 for a deck is expensive, but for the amount of quality you are buying you can be sure it’s money well spent. The only reason the MADD scientist behind the MFX deck are able to make this deck so cheap is because of MGP’s extensive production and distribution network. If some other companies where to release a scooter deck with this much research, development and new technology (not to mention years of testing) It would cost twice the price! In our humble opinion this deck is worth closer to the £160-£200 mark. The MFX is great value for money at just £100!
5. It’s super Limited Edition!
Let’s face it. You don’t want to be riding the same scooter as every other guy in the skatepark. The MFX deck is super limited edition, so make sure you grab one before they are all gone!
