The 2018 Venice Lyon Slappy Challenge went down last weekend, and the world’s most spectacular double-sided curb got quite a workout. Free Skate Mag covered the event—sponsored by Nike SB, Film Trucks, Wall Street Skateshop, and ABS Lyon—which spanned two days and introduced a brand new obstacle to the celebration: a deadly pole jam with a cobblestone landing… a bumpy ride, to say the least. But not too bumpy for Jarne Verbruggen to roll away from a gorgeous switch front three pole jam.

Expectations are now pretty high for next year’s low-key Slappy Challenge. Read the full story at Free Skate Mag.
