The weather and a few unexpected interruptions didn’t make the organisation of Vans Shop Riot Italy too easy, but there’s no doubt that the end result was amazing.
Despite weather forecasts, twenty-two teams arrived from all over Italy to make an epic day of skateboarding, highlighted by the best trick session on the big rail which Alex Cageggi kicked off with a flip over rail, first try.
After a sequence of crazy tricks, the Nixon Best Trick award went to Adalberto Rinaldi from Acriminal G with a Front Side Crooked.
The contest overall was won by Flame Shop Team – consisting of Fabio Montagner, Jacopo Picozza, Alvin Francescato and Samir El Kerdoud, who have now gained the opportunity to fly to Spain for the European finals which will be held in September. And in the end a little rain helped to cool everyone down after a day of explosive skating on the ramps.
