Rider Cup NYC Qualifiers: Brooklyn

July 30th, 2014 Posted by Articles No Comment yet

The third stop of the Rider Cup NYC brought us to New York’s most populated borough: Brooklyn!!!  As most New York skaters know, McCarren skatepark is probably the WORST skatepark in the city that happens to be in the borough with the most skaters, and in a location that has the highest concentration of skaters in the area (and is easiest for everyone to get to).  As bad as the park is, 6 teams of Brooklyn natives came out and did what all skaters do; they adapted and KILLED the park! Congrats to Soul Team and Brooks Squad for qualifying to represent Brooklyn in the Rider Cup NYC Finals for a shot at an all expenses paid trip to South Africa for the Rider Cup Championships at Kimberley Diamond Cup this October! Photos and results below.
