Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy 2012 Schedule Announced

STREET LEAGUE DC PRO TOUR FUELED BY MONSTER ENERGY

2012 SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

Los Angeles, CA – March 20, 2012 – The world’s premier professional skateboarding series, Street League Skateboarding, announced today the 2012 schedule for the DC Pro Tour fueled by Monster Energy. This summer, the league will feature a four-stop nationwide tour:

· Stop One: May 18 – 19th – Sprint Center, Kansas City, MO

Live on ESPN2, May 19 – 9:00PM ET

· Stop Two: June 15 – 16th – Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario, CA

Live on ESPN2, June 16 – 9:30PM ET

· Stop Three: July 14 – 15th – Jobing.com Arena, Glendale, AZ

Live on ESPN2, July 15 – 7:00PM ET

· Championship: August 26th – Prudential Center, Newark, NJ

Live on ESPN2, August 26th – 5:00PM ET

The Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy continues to present the largest purse and highest stakes in all of competitive skateboarding with 24 of the best professional skateboarders in the world competing for more than $1.6MM in prize money and the title as Street League Champion.

As the only tour with street skating’s biggest stars, Street League has had astounding growth since its launch. The 2011 season was the highest attended and viewed contest series in skateboarding history with nearly 50,000 fans in attendance and over 1.4 billion global impressions. Last year’s champion, Sean Malto, emerged above the world’s best to walk away with the Championship, and in the process denied teen phenomenon Nyjah Huston a first-ever season sweep. Huston enjoyed an historical year winning the first three events, giving the 2010 League Champion an unprecedented four career Street League victories. Along with Malto and Huston, the heavy hitting roster of Street League remains stronger than ever with stars like Chris Cole, Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler, Chaz Ortiz, and Torey Pudwill ready to stake their claim to the 2012 Championship

One of the most exciting additions to Street League this year is the qualifier for the newly open spots that will replace the bottom six ranked pros from the end of 2011 season. In April, the league will release a video-based qualifier that utilizes votes from fans, Street League, and its pros to select the winning entrants. A similar qualifier will be launched at the DC Embassy Park in Barcelona, Spain for one European Pro to join the league. Further details on the first-ever Street League Pro qualifier will be released in the upcoming weeks.

“Our goal is to continue to refine the series and make it better year-after-year,” said Street League creator Rob Dyrdek. “Beyond the evolution of our courses, format, and qualification process, 2012 will mark significant expansions in Street League’s licensed products, permanent plaza efforts, and international presence as we solidify our position as the definitive professional skateboarding property.”

This year the one-of-a-kind skate plazas built in each arena will expand the number of features in its design, to allow for full timed-runs on every obstacle of the course for the Line Section. The Tech Section will highlight the single best trick out of five attempts. Concluding each event, the reformatted Big Section will count the top four scores of six trick attempts. This will allow the Street League pros to push the boundaries of competitive skateboarding even further while maintaining the easy-to-follow format that Street League is known for.

Tickets for the Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy will go on sale April 2nd at www.streetleague.com. The series will be available live on ESPN2, ESPN3, Street League’s official Facebook Page, and distributed to over 198 countries via the ESPN Family of Channels.

(Sean Malto)

Street League pros pulled no punches throughout the Stop Two Finals, landing innovative and technical tricks to avoid elimination. In the Technical Section, Mikey Taylor rolled away from an amazing Switch Frontside 180 to Frontside Feeble Grind down the handrail on his last attempt to jump ahead of Paul Rodriguez and Shane O’Neill. In the Line Section, Billy Marks put together one of the best lines of the contest with a Double Kick Flip down the stairs followed by an incredible Triple Kick Flip over the flat gap. Although Marks’ line just wasn’t quite enough to get him to the Big Section as he and Taylor were eliminated.

 

Another crowd pleaser was Ryan Sheckler, who won the last remaining spot in the Stop Two Finals during the Make Your Own Luck Last Chance Qualifier that was held immediately prior to Sunday’s Finals. Sheckler landed a Caballerial Kick Flip in the Big Section for 9.4 points. He went on to place fifth overall with 61.8 points and took home the Monster Energy Best Trick Award worth $15,000 for landing highest scoring trick of the day.

 

Huston was not the only pro with consecutive wins as collectively the 24 SLS pros voted a second time for Billy Marks to win the Zumiez 24-7 Award worth $7,000. After the finals, all the skaters had one more chance to skate in the Wonka Free Ride for a chance at $10,000. Tommy Sandoval, Torey Pudwill, Nyjah Huston & Billy Marks all skated solid, but it was Chris Cole who ended up with the prize, doing amazing tricks all over the course including a Backside 360 to Backside Nose Slide on the bump to hubba ledge.

 

Street League’s $1.6 million purse is the largest in skateboarding history and almost double the combined winnings for all other skate contests. Nearly $400,000 will be awarded at the next stop in Glendale, AZ at the Jobing.com Arena on July 16-17 with the SLS tour culminating in a winner-takes-all Championship in Newark, NJ at the Prudential Center on August 28. The SLS Championship will feature the winners of the first three stops of the 2011 tour along with the remaining top eight qualifiers who will compete for $200,000 as well as the title of Street League Champion.  Finals for the next stop will air LIVE on ESPN2.

Huston Scores 104.6 Points and Highest Trick Score in History of Street League Skateboarding

 

Seattle, Wash. (May 8, 2011) – The first stop of the 2011 Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy lived up to the hype with thousands of fans witnessing the world’s best skateboarders competing for a top spot worth $150,000 and a golden ticket directly to the SLS Championship. When it was all over, 2010 Street League Champion Nyjah Huston was the winner, edging out Shane O’Neill and Chaz Ortiz for the top spot. Perhaps the most memorable moment was on Huston’s last attempt, when he landed a backside 270 nose bluntslide on the big section rail for the highest scoring trick of Street League to-date and ending the event as the crowd roared. With that trick, Huston also took home the Monster Energy Best Trick Award worth another $15,000.  Stop One’s finals also showcased some fresh faces in the series, with Mike Mo Capaldi, Mikey Taylor, and Billy Marks making their finals debut.

Hyjah Huston – backside 270 nose bluntslide

“It’s the best feeling in the world to win the best skateboarding contest,” said 16 year-old Nyjah Huston after taking home the top prize in the Street League Stop One Finals.

 

“Today was the ideal way to kick off our 2011 series and first-ever live ESPN broadcast, said Rob Dyrdek, Street League Founder.   “We got to see some fresh faces in the finals battling it out with the top Street League pros from 2010 in the grandest stage possible.   Nyjah is clearly a star and his performance today will be remembered for years-to-come.”   

It was a trick-for-trick battle throughout the entire three sections of the Stop One Finals. In the first two sections, the Street League pros held no punches as they landed undeniably difficult tricks one after another in order to not be eliminated. Mikey Taylor, Mike Mo Capaldi, Billy Marks, and Paul Rodriguez got bumped out before they could get their shot at the final seven attempts in the big section of the course.

 

It was Billy Marks, however, who squeaked into the finals during the Make Your Own Luck Last Chance Qualifier held immediately prior to Sunday’s Finals, to win the last remaining slot. Marks landed the highest scoring trick with a switch bigspin heelflip on the big section to land the 10th and final spot. He would go on to skate his way into 7th place with 41 points and capture the 24/7 Zumiez award worth $7000 cash, which is decided by a collective vote from all 24 street league pros.

Street League’s $1.6 million purse is the largest in skateboarding history and almost double the combined winnings for all other skate contests. Nearly $400,000 will be awarded at each of the remaining three stops beginning with Kansas City, MO (Sprint Center) on June 11-12, Glendale, AZ. (Jobing.com Arena) on July 16-17 and the SLS Championship in Newark, NJ. (Prudential Center) on August 28 featuring the top ten pros. Finals of each stop will air LIVE on ESPN2.
