Vert Attack 4 - The First Blood Session

For the fourth time Bryggeriet Skatepark presents what is known as the European Championships in Midvert, Vert Attack 4 - The First Blood Session. The competition will take place at Bryggeriet Skatepark in Malmö Sweden on the 30th of January 2010. This year we will see a newly designed midvert with new riding surface, new coping, more viking blocks, a channel and a slight corner that makes one side of the ramp a bit wider. We have confirmed riders from all over Europe, great prizes and lots of visual entertainment.

Love the fact that many more have confirmed their participation, but evidently have withheld their names, competing anonymously. Aslo, when you look at the list, you get an idea of where dudes are riding vert these days. Make the effort and get there if you can, this is promising to be one hell of a session.
