Evolution Skatepark in Stevenston enjoyed a visit from one of the world’s top BMX stars – and the riding heavyweight described the facility as “potentially the best” he had ever seen.

Pro-BMX rider and YouTube sensation, Harry Main, is well known for his mix of technical skills and ‘go big’ ability. He visited the local skatepark last week and spoke to staff and riders.

A spokesperson for Evolution Skatepark said: “Harry arrived at Evolution on Tuesday [March 5] in beautiful sunshine and was suitably impressed at the size and facilities of the park.

“He stayed the afternoon working with park manager, Debby Behan, and park supervisor, Craig Hankinson.

“Harry then had a chat with some local riders. He has vowed to come back and ride what he called ‘potentially the best outdoor skate park he has ever seen’.”
