The 2015 World Rookie Tour kicked off last weekend in Helmos – Kalavrita, Greece with the 1st edition of the Hellas Rookie Fest, won by the bulgarian rising star Kamen Petrov from Pamporovo TRS Team.

Among the male grom, Kamen Petrov from Bulgaria resulted the best rider of the day and got the title of Hellas Rookie Fest overall champion with a run including front side 720 by the biggest jump, boxing 50-50, 50-50 to 180 and out of Spite – 360 cab with bonk.
