http://mpora.com/videos/8jM0SQrpa Nike 6.0's Stairset Battle Tour hit up the Spanish resort of Vallnord the other day and the rail setup got a good seeing to. Check the video and read the haps...
Vallnord was where the Spanish rippers came out to play and prove the level of their scene. Blending difficult tech tricks with a high emphasis on style, competitors brought bangers like 360s both ways to the stair set, but also unexpected gems like a front flip out on the Kinked Ledge. After a raging qualifying session, the finals were held in complete darkness as night session under heavy-duty spotlights.
Standouts included Julien Vilmin’s 50-50 to Frontflip out on the Kinked Ledge, while Juan “Polan" Polanco took first place by dropping hammers and oozing bags of style. Juan’s bag of tricks included bangers such as Cab 360 to 50-50, BS 360 to 50-50 as well as the most stylish backside lip of the entire tour so
By securing the win at this official TTR 2-Star event, Juan has also earned himself the Ticket to the Big Final of the Tour at Nike 6.0 Air & Style 2011 in
Munich on February 12th, 2011, where he will compete against the other winners of the Tour, and the world’s best jib riders in a Best Trick Rail Battle for a
total purse of $20,000 in front of 25,000 spectators!
