Red Bull Manny Mania broke North of the border to Edinburgh for the second UK round of the qualifiers last weekend. The Scotland qualifier took place at Meadowbank Sports Centre which was home to the 1986 Commonwealth Games. With a retro atmosphere in the air and very smooth floor beneath, Manny conditions were looking ideal.
Doors opened at 12pm and the day began with an two hour jam session. 36 entrants got their name down before the first heat and, as judges Rob Selley, Dan Cates and Rodney Clark took their positions and readied their score sheets, the comp got under way.
Competition in the final heats was very tight and some solid tricks were thrown down but it was the style and fluidity of the following guys that secured them the cash prize and place in the Grand Final:
1. Keith Allan
2. Daniel Nicholas
3. Will Greenfield
4. Daniel Main
