On Saturday, August 4th, at the RDM Summer Classic scooter competition in Redmond, OR, Paxton Swygard took second place in the Intermediate 14 & Under division. After receiving his awards, he was approached by Tom Floyd (owner of Phoenix Pro Scooters) and Dan Barrett (Phoenix pro team rider) who asked him if he would like to be part of the Phoenix Flow team. Paxton eagerly accepted the opportunity to become part of the Phoenix family.
As the youngest rider to ever be selected for the Phoenix Flow team, Paxton is excited to begin representing the team. However, he also wants to thank those who have supported him on the way to this next chapter in his scootering career. There's no question that he wouldn't be where he is today without the support and help of the Lil' Lucky team organized by Lucky's own Brian Jeide and NW Scoot's Korey Kier. Lucky and NW Scoot have been and always will be part of Paxton's scooter family. He and his family continue to support and encourage the Lil' Lucky team and the rest of the Lucky family. It was with a heavy heart that Paxton respectfully resigned from the Lil' Lucky team, but they all remain friends.
Moving forward, Paxton is now rocking his full factory Phoenix Pro Scooters ride and he's working on his "Welcome to Phoenix Flow" edit, so watch for that soon. In the meantime, here's a little teaser:
