Aktion Parks Manager Ryan Malone stated, “We are absolutely thrilled to be taking home trophies for both major Points Chase competitions! The atmosphere at the event was electric and it was great to see our team pull together and dominate the competition.”
Team Captain Theo Koester added, “It’s great to bring home a win but the time we share on and off the water is even better. We are very fortunate to be supported by Aktion Parks and all the riders and families that supported the OWC Team to make it to Nationals – without them, none of this would be possible.”
