Clearwater, Florida — For the past two years, 15-year-old Noah Built has lived a seemingly floating life.
“Just enter there and you can go outside and explore,” Bilt told ABC Action News sports caster Kyleberger. “That’s what I enjoy. It releases my mind.”
Bild has been at the forefront of the growth trend of riding the “One Wheel.” An electronic skateboard with one wide wheel.
“If you want to move forward, you lean forward and start moving forward,” Bilt said. “If you want to go back, lean back and go back. Also, to break, it depends on which direction you are heading, but in most cases you lean back to slow down.
Built’s mother, Traci, has also become an avid rider on “One Wheel.”
“When I asked him why he was so fast, it was an extension of his body,” Traci said. “He has literally put 15,000 miles on the board in the last two years.”
The built-in rides through a bike path that touches speeds of 25 mph. His skills in “One Wheel” have allowed him to compete in the “Race for the Rail” World Championship in the Men’s Pro category, where he will face 19 other top players.
“It’s the best of the best riders in the world,” Traci said. “It’s going to be tight. A single move makes a difference, but the winner has a $ 10,000 jackpot.”
A built-in train is here in a park around Tampa Bay at an altitude of about 30 feet. The world championship in Snow Basin, Utah is about 10,000 feet above sea level. The championship tournament is scheduled for July 31st. To adapt to altitude, Built and his family depart a few days early for training.
“Salt Lake terrain, we use ski lifts that far,” said Built. “It’s definitely not here. I have to get used to it, so I don’t start to feel a little drowsy up the hill.”
The built-in “One Wheel” stardom is rising and descending the bumpy road of the world title.
