Newthorpe freestyle skier Bradley Fry has been crowned under-12s champion at the Scottish Slopestyle Championships in Glasgow.

Bradley, who at only nine-years-old competes against youngsters much older than him, produced two excellent runs to secure the title - adding to the English Slopestyle Championship he won earlier this year and a silver medal from the BRITS 2014 event held in the French Alps.

The week leading up to the Scottish championships saw Bradley training in both Tamworth and Manchester before heading to Glasgow for the main event.

Following a one-hour warm-up session to get used to the slope, it was then down to a two run competition format.

The slope had four zones with a mixed bag of rails, pipes and kickers.

On run one he hit the top rail landing switch, continued to ski switch (backwards) on to the gas pipe and then landed a 360 degree mute on the kicker then hit the gap rail.

Run two saw him hit the top rail natural, then land switch off the gas pipe and on to a switch 180 tail grab on the kicker then hit the gap rail.

His runs saw him claim top spot in the under-12 category and secure another title.

Bradley wishes to thank his sponsors Planks Ski Clothing, Butta, Chillifactore Manchester and also britishfreeskicamps.com and salomongromcamps.co.uk
