Jul 012019

10th annual Grand Prix Beroun skateboarding competition took place in Beroun skatepark on Saturday 22nd of June. Riders from twenty different countries arrived to the event to compete in the battle for prize money of 400 000 CZK. The competition included invite only category PRO, amateur’s category AM, women category and of course spectator's most attractive discipline BEST TRICK. US rider Mike Piwowar deservedly won the PRO category with Kristoffer Kroon from Sweden winning the AM. Our rider and winner from 2017 Richard Tury showed a solid technical skateboarding, however in this year’s tough competition that was only enough for 9th place.

The Beroun skate park was completely packed with a few thousands of cheering fans, who despite the rainy weather managed to create an incredible atmosphere and drove all riders to maximum performance all day long. They were rewarded by perfect skateboarding and concerts of local project Kapitan Demo and Slovak rap legend and Monster ambassador Ego.

 

The great atmosphere throughout the day continued until the night hours and everyone left the area after midnight with a feeling of a great day off.

“I am absolutely excited about this year's 10th edition. We have moved the bar a bit further again. An incredible number of viewers created an atmosphere that I haven’t seen anywhere else in the world for a long time. I would like to thank everyone who worked hard on the event for months in advance and, of course, the fantastic fans, who made it clear to us that they enjoy what we do and that is the best reward for us and a challenge for the next years,” said organiser Tomáš Vintr.
