After the great and successful year of 2019, when pro skaters from literally all over the world came to GPB and the race was won by the American Mike Piwowar, we were all looking forward to where the event can grow in 2020. Due to COVlD-19 restrictions, the 2020 GPB was eventually cancelled and this year a smaller GrandPrix Beroun was planned with the subtitle "back to the roots." The situation during the year was still uncertain and the only possible date coincided with another skateboard event, so the organizers finally decided to do it completely differently this year. They took advantage of the presence of the world's top skateboarders in the Czech Republic and together with Monster Energy organized Grand Prix Beroun The Session.
A group of 14 TOP skaters came to the session with a prize money of CZK 50,000, who could ride without stress in a small circle of friends, have a pizza, a Monster or a few beers and listen to great music from DJ HERBY (Eda Synák), who took care of fun throughout the afternoon.
GPB Pizza Party Session was visited by names such as Rišo Tury (SVK), Matias Dell Olio (ARG), Egor Kaldikov (RUS), Zander Gabriel (USA), Kiko Nguyen (SVK), Mauro Iglesias (ARG), Alex Decunha (UK) or Keet Oldenbeuving (HOL), who is by far the best professional femal skater in Europe.
Skaters were given complete freedom in choosing the format of the race, and they all agreed that they would prefer the format of 10 attempts, with the TOP 3 tricks to be included in their final score. Incredible bombs fell in the park as usual, and for those who came to see the Session, whether it was a small circle of families, friends and acquaintances, or passers-by who accidentally found the event, it was absolutely TOP afternoon spectacle.
