Vans Park Series congratulates Alex Sorgente for a remarkable first place performance at the VPS Sweden men's Pro Tour event last weekend. As the current World Champion, Sorgente’s victory marks his second time claiming glory at Kroksbäck Skatepark, after dominating the built-to-spec park terrain course at the VPS World Championships last year.
Tour Challenger Tom Schaar’s precision and trick variety landed him in 2nd place, further securing his Challenger rankings lead and earning him his second podium appearance in the season after winning in Australia in March.
Finally, it was no surprise that the capacity Malmö crowds went wild for local boy Karl Berglind, whose seamless runs and creative combinations in the semi’s and finals put him in 3rd place, securing his first podium placement in the series so far. An honorable mention also goes out to fellow Malmö native Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg, after executing an outstanding miracle run in the Semi’s to send the Sweden audience roaring.
