2009 Red Bull Manny Mania Lineup Announced
RED BULL MANNY MANIA BRINGS IT BACK TO THE BRIDGE WITH ALL-STAR LINEUP OF SKATEBOARDERS AND NEW YORK SWAGGER
THE 3RD ANNUAL MANUAL PRO CONTEST RETURNS TO MANHATTAN JUNE 7TH
MAY 7, 2009 – Santa Monica, CA – New Yorkers should prepare for a two-wheel rumble, as Red Bull Manny Mania returns with a heavy-hitting line up of pro skaters ready to fight for the crown at the capstone event of Skateboard Weekend in Manhattan.
Last year, skateboarding pro Joey Brezinski battled it out with Brandon Biebel for top honors, after taking second place in 2007 to Ronnie Creager. Competition will be in the air as this year marks the return of Creager as well as Biebel and a number of newcomers. Last year’s reigning champ will sure feel the pressure with returning guests like pro Stevie Williams, who admits he’s been training for months, revving up the competition.
In its third year, Red Bull Manny Mania will showcase more pros and bigger names involved as the Skateboard Weekend progresses to a four day affair. Skate scene legends Jeff Pang and Dave Ortiz return to MC the event and three generations of East Coast talent will serve as judges: Stereo’s Chris Pastras, Zoo York’s Donny Barley and Queens native Rodney Torres. Also on the 1s and 2s is no other than NYC music luminary, Bobbito Garcia.
Red Bull Manny Mania caps off a weekend full of festivities, starting on Thursday with the premiere of Zoo York’s “State of Mind,” the 5boro 13 Year Anniversary Party on Friday, and Saturday’s 5Boro’s Back To The Banks Jam.
Come Sunday, June 7th, the Manhattan Bridge will be rocking with all the skate talent gathered in one spot. They might want to reinforce the pillars.
