Pierre-Luc Gagnon and P-Rod win the Maloof Money Cup

The facts are finally coming through (no, I did not watch the webcast here in Hamburg as it started at 10 in the evening and went on till around 4 in the morning!) and Paul Rodriguez came through to win the men’s street event and take home the $100,000 dollar prize purse. Nyjah Huston took second and Chris Cole took third.

In the vert contest it was Pierre-Luc Gagnon who walked away with $75,000 bucks for his day in the ramp. I did find out though that it’s not like he’s not used to getting paid well: he had already won $66,000, after he won the vert and finished second in big-air at the 2005 X Games. Good for him – skate well, get paid well. Sure sounds good to me. That wasn’t all that was going on this past weekend as the World Industries U.S. amateur street and vert championships took place as well.
