Open your diary, locate August 20th and prepare to write it completely off, as Vans are bringing their infamous “Downtown Showdown” event to the UK for the first time, taking over Spitalfields Market in London!
Twelve teams have been invited from across Europe to take part in the event, with a variety of specially designed obstacles being build for the occasion, each of which following a distinctively British feel. Expect to see riders from Death Skateboards, Element Europe, Antiz, Superdead, Cliché, Blind Europe, Blueprint and many more handling business for their share of the 50,000 Euros up for grabs on the day.
Entry to Downtown Showdown is free, and there will also be a live webcast on the day too, for those unable to make it to London.
Stay tuned for more info!
