World's best professional skateboarders are going to attend the biggest contest of the season - GrandPrix Beroun 2018, one of the biggest skateboard events in central Europe with a truly global attendance, will take place on Saturday, June 23rd, in the Beroun skatepark and surrounding venue, only 15km away from Prague. Both local and international visitors will have a chance to experience this incredible show and see their favorite athletes, competing in this prestigious event.
The event's schedule of GrandPrix Beroun 2018 starts on Friday, June 22nd, 2018 with our professional athlete's arrivals and the official practice before saturday's Main event. The star filled list will feature the entire czech national skateboard team, consisting of Tomas Vintr, Maxim Habanec, Martin Pek and last year's GrandPrix Beroun 2017 winner, the slovakian skateboard star, living in Prague, Riso Tury.
"GrandPrix Beroun not only is a major skateboard competition with a global attendance of the world's best Pro skateboarders, happening in the central Europe, but it also is the only event of it's kind, broadcasted officially by the Czech Television TV channel. This year, we would like to organise and bring an event, that will fulfill the expectations of both the finest viewers and athletes", says Tomas Vintr, the founder and main organizer of the event, who also is part of the Czech national skateboard team.
GrandPrix Beroun was founded in May 2010, as a part of the Grand opening of the famous, concrete skate plaza in the city of Beroun, which is the most modern skateboard plaza in the Czech republic and the event quickly became an important stop for professional riders and media on a global scale. Since then, the event multiplied in size and experienced major changes and upgrades. Thanks to it's size and reputation, the event could potentially become one of the qualifying events for the OG in Tokyo 2020. These events are still being determined.
This June, we will welcome some of the World's best professional athletes from more than 25 countries from literally all over the World. Our spectators will have a chance to see several X-Games medalists and other WCS winners from the USA, Canada, Japan, South Africa, Malaysia, Brasil and the entire Europe. Saturday's main event in the PRO category will feature 20 of the best invited riders, who will be joined by 5 wildcards and top 5 ranked AMs and will be broadcasted by the CT Sport public TV channel. The entry for the skateboard event is free.
The Music festival part of the event, starting at 19:00, will be happening in the surrounding area within our event venue and will offer Czech and Slovak hip hop stars such as MARPO & TROUBLE GANG, PIL C, REST & DJ HERBY.
