On May 17 and 18, the 2014 Vans Shop Riot Series rolled into action with teams from skate shops in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Netherlands competing at a national level to find the best skaters in retail. The winners in Slovakia (including Czech participants) were the staff of StreetMarket CZ, followed by Picnic Skateshop and StreetMarket SK. The new Dutch retail champions are the Burnside store team from Deventer who beat Manus #2 and Sevenply #3. See the film at YouTube.
Meanwhile, footwear brand Vans has issued a “final call” to German skate shops for the German event, which takes place in Münster on May 24-25. To register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (+49 170 7651632). The winning teams from each country then get together at the European finals to be held in Belgium next October.
