Red Bull‘s latest creative contest event, sponsored by Etnies, is the Paris Conquest competition, which is scheduled for August 17 and 18 and will be held in front of the Eiffel Tower at the Jardins Du Trocadero. But, guess what? EVERYBODY is there already (including key Berrics personnel… see today’s ‘Skate Or Dice’, below)! The brand released the first edit from the pre-event this morning, and the party vibes are strong: TJ Rogers, Jake Ilardi, Vincent Milou, Lucas Rabelo, Gustavo Ribeiro, Jake Wooten, Angelo Caro, and many more get busy for a le Jam Session. This looks fun!
In case you haven’t heard about Red Bull’s amazing ‘Paris Conquest event: For the first time in history, four well-known historic Paris spots will be recreated: Bloc de Bercy; Quais de Seine and Ledges de Republique; Curb du Luxembourg; and Cadran Solaire Chatelet Les Halles. Aside from the eye-popping location of Paris Conquest, the contest will also be notable for its equity. Women’s and Men’s pro prize purses will be equal, and there will be a pre-event am contest with the winner getting a wildcard entry to compete against the pros. Skateboarders expected to compete in the pro contests include Trevor McClung, Nassim Lachhab, Aurelien Giraud, Leticia Bufoni, Milou, Wooten, Tiago Lemos, and Rogers, just to name a few.
Look out for some special Berrics videos from the event very soon!
