adidas skateboard clash: Skate-action in Berlin
The adidas skateboard clash is rolling into the fifth round. On May 23rd and 24th skateboard europe will meet up in the “skatehalle berlin” to enjoy the unique and relaxed atmosphere of this extraordinary contest.
For 2009 we are awaiting a top notch field of professional skateboarders Europe and overseas, such as Dennis Busenitz (US) and the wild Russian Connection from Schützi (IOU Ramps). Right in time, the whole street course will be redesigned by german skate-pro Jan Kliewer. So be prepared for more street-flavoured sessions and some obstacles which have never been seen before.
The street contest will be „invitational only“ for 60 riders. But there are still 15 lucky guys who will have the chance to participate, by winning the pre-qualifications on saturday morning. 20 Riders will compete jam-style in The “Death or Glory Bowl Jam”, with 3 riders per run. There will be a total prize money of 9.000 Euro to win.
Saturday night will cool everybody down with an awesome aftershow party and the premiere of the new adidas video „Diagonal”.
The Street Session 2008 resumé reads like this: twice as many spectators as last year and roundabout 15.000 fans witnessed this year’s hattrick session Europe’s most successful extreme sports event series has to offer.
