It is going to be one busy skateboarding weekend in Europe starting today, August 19th until August 21st. The Vans Downtown Showdown 2011 returns to Europe and to no smaller city than London, England. The Old Spitalfields Market in East London (UK) is the venue for the third edition of the Vans Downtown Showdown 2011 tomorrow, August 20th. The event runs from 12:00 to 18:30 with the contest beginning at 13:00 GMT.
Twelve of the best skate teams from all over Europe are arriving in London as I’m typing this to test their skills on the custom built ramps which are all designed by the invited teams themselves.
After Torino, Italy and Hamburg, Germany hosting thr event, we can expect to see the top pros from Death Skateboards, Element Europe, Antiz, Superdead, Cliché, Blind Europe, Blueprint and many more teams putting their skateboarding skills to the limit. A combined prize total of 50.000 Euros is up for grabs at this year’s Vans Downtown Showdown and luckily enough, everybody can watch it through the live webcast – right here on Europeskate thanks to Freecaster.com – if you can’t make it to London. Lots of action so tune in tomorrow!
