DC´s ZIP6020 Open Skateboard Contest powered by Dickies
For the sixth time Innsbruck`s Skateboard Association “ZIP6020” holds their Street Contest in Austria´s largest indoor park.
Unsponsored riders in three age groups, a women`s category as well as more than 50 sponsored riders and pros competing for 4.000 Euros of prize money - the two-day-event is definitely the place to be for skaters in Austria and neighboring countries. Friday, 8th of December, is dedicated to unsponsored riders and the women`s division.
There are three age groups for the boys and men. In addition to an incredible amount of prizes such as shoes, skateboards and apparel the best riders can win wildcards to enter the event on Saturday. In the women`s division riders can win 500 Euros plus a lot of goodies. Dutch ripper Candy Jacobs has already announced to enter the event. But also the unsponsored guys can win some cash: There are 200 Euros in the pot for the “Kape Best Trick Session”.
On Saturday, 9th of December, the park belongs to sponsored riders and pros – and the few lucky owners of wildcards. A great park, dedicated organizers and 3000 Euros of prize money plus a minimum of 300 Euros for the Best Trick Session have not only drawn top skaters from Austria and neighboring countries to Innsbruck in the last five years. Some riders, like last year`s winner Maxim Kruglov from Russia, are prepared to take a longer trip to be part of the ZIP6020 Open Skateboard Contest.
