Here’s what happened at the 2017 Vans Park Series Canada

Claiming victory on his first time at Hastings Skatepark in Vancouver, Brazilian Pedro Barros annihilated the park course, stoking crowds wild with trademark huge airs, high speeds, and countless trick after trick combinations. Barros’ Canada victory is his second event win on the 2017 VPS Men’s Pro Tour this year.

“Fortunately, I was able to come to Canada this year,” said Canada event winner Pedro Barros. “This place, everybody, the energy, these guys are true skaters. Thank you, we are all united together!”

Placing second, Sweden’s Karl Berglind proved his potential as a new threat to the field, demonstrating impressive trick creativity, fast runs and consistent style from leading the prelims all the way through to landing the second highest score in the finals. Berglind secures a noteworthy back to back podium placement, after celebrating third place finish in Sweden last month.

Finally, the tour’s highest-ranking Men’s Pro Tour Challenger in the 2017 World Championship race, Tom Schaar takes third, protecting his lead, and remaining focused stop after stop.
