DAREDEVIL Ant Burgess looks set to be crowned British Free-style Jet Ski Champion 2006-7 at the weekend.
The Malbank School pupil has blitzed the competition in the JSRA championships this year, winning all four of the rounds of the six-round competition so far.
His latest victory, at Tattershall on Sunday, has put the teenager in an almost unassailable position.
He needs only to finish third or better at the Tees Barrage meeting this weekend to lift the title.
Ant, voted Great Britain's most improved rider after wowing crowds across the world last year, had powered to maximum 20 points in each of the previous rounds at Grendon Lakes, Tattershall and Nitrojet Lakes, Oxford.
Freestyle jet-ski competition sees competitors perform spectacular tricks to score points from watching judges.
Ant, who lives in Nantwich, uses his upgraded Yamaha Powervalve engine togetevenmore heightwithhistricks, which include a no-handed barrel roll, submarine dives, monkey jumps and handstands.
He has practiced hard on the River Weaver at Frodsham Watersports, thanks to new owner Jimmy Dyer.
Dad Peter said: 'I'll be surprised if Ant doesn't win the championship, he's doing so well.
'He will hopefully be going to the World Championships this summer at Lake Havasu, Arizona as well.'
Ant would like to thank sponsors Airtime Products, Nitrojet Lakes, just-watersports.com, Jobe Wetsuits,
Gecko Headgear, THC Industries and Kaleido Design.
Visitors to the British International Motor Show to be held at London Docklands Excel UK, later this month will have a chance to see Ant in action as part of the Pierats freestyle display team.
