Redbull Manny Mania News and Notes
Around the Country, Around the Globe:
Red Bull Manny Mania 2010 Takes Over the Planet!
April 14, 2010 – (Santa Monica, CA) – From its humble beginnings in the mind of skate pro Joey Brezinski to its growth as the premiere skateboard event in New York City, Red Bull Manny Mania has always been about connecting skaters through a mix of fun, relaxed contests with the highest level of technical trickery on two wheels. In 2010, Red Bull Manny Mania will expand around the globe to an epic series that will take amateur winners from countries as far ranging as South Africa to Oman to Japan and throw them in the mix in the city that never sleeps.
U.S. skaters will battle it out in local competitions to earn their spot at the National Final taking place at Woodward East in July 16, 2010. The winner of that contest will represent the United States at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs in New York City on August 21, 2010. The one amateur skater who defeats every other in the global field will get their chance to step into the big leagues – a spot in the invite-only Red Bull Manny Mania Pro Event, on Sunday, August 22. Now entering its 4th year, the pro event has brought some of the best skaters to New York City, including past winners Brezinski, Ronnie Creager, 2009 winner Eli Reed as well as other top skaters such as Brandon Biebel, Mike Mo Capaldi and Eric Koston among many others.
WORLD CUP ON WHEELS
With 32 countries hosting Red Bull Manny Mania stops, it’s time to take bets to see which skater’s small town dreams turn into big city reality. On the line is a $30,000 prize purse including $10,000 for first in Sunday’s Pro. With a chance for one amateur to compete against skateboarding’s top professionals, this August will quite possibly see a manual pad turn into a launching pad for one tenacious two-wheeler.
