Pedro Barros claims back to back Vancouver title victory at 2018 Vans Park Series Canada Qualifiers. Higher, faster, stronger, and full of surprises - this weekends' Vans Park Series men’s professional park terrain skateboarding competition at the iconic Hastings Skatepark in Vancouver, BC saw some of the best skateboarding in VPS history.
Vans Park Series congratulates defending VPS Men’s Pro Tour, Canada winner Pedro Barros for the Brazilian native’s back to back Vancouver victory. Barros’ sharp focus delivered massive runs at unstoppable speeds (including a monstrous backside 540 on the hipped spine), achieving the only 90-point run in the Mother Hastings course. Barros celebrates two podium appearances in the 2018 VPS season so far after earning 2nd place at last month’s VPS Pro Tour, Brazil event, with no signs of slowing down.
2016 VPS Pro Tour, Canada winner Ivan Federico makes a comeback onto the VPS podium, landing difficult combinations and consistent lines to claim second place. And in a last-minute podium shakedown, Trey Wood saw glory snatched away by veteran Alex Sorgente, who squeezed into third place with his final run of the contest.
Driving the pressure throughout the event, hungry tour rookies such as semi-finals leader Jagger Eaton and contest prodigy Keegan Palmer, left the field shook, bringing a new level of technicality and unpredictability in the race to the VPS World Championships. Next stop, Huntington Beach!
