STREET LEAGUE SKATEBOARDING™ ANNOUNCES THE 2010 DC PRO TOUR FUELED BY MONSTER ENERGY
DC and Monster Energy To Co-Present Groundbreaking Professional Street Skateboarding Series
Street League Skateboarding™ announced today that DC and Monster Energy will present the highly anticipated 2010 series. The DC Pro Tour fueled by Monster Energy is a prestigious, invite-only three-event series featuring 24 of the best skateboarders in the world. Founded by twenty-year professional skateboarder and entrepreneur, Rob Dyrdek, Street League™ is truly the future of competitive street skateboarding.
“I am very honored to have my two closest sponsors, DC and Monster participate in the launch of Street League™,” says Rob Dyrdek. “DC and Monster have always supported my vision for street skateboarding, from building skate plazas throughout the world to now creating the first-ever professional skateboarding league. Their support is a testament to their belief in the need to create a professional street skateboarding series that skate fans across the world embrace.”
Street League Skateboarding™ features the exclusive participation of twenty-four of the best street skateboarders in the world. To assist their transition into the league, each pro has been given the option to compete in two non-sanctioned wildcard events until the end of 2010.

Using real time scoring and an exciting proprietary competition format, Street League™ will tell a compelling story about each skateboarder’s performance and will have fans on the edge of their seats from the first trick to the very last. The inaugural year of Street League™ features a 3-stop arena tour beginning at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona on August 28th, Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California on September 11th, and the final stop in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center on September 25th. The skaters will be competing at each event for a total purse of $1.2 million.

Pool skating has long hinged on abandoned houses and perfect timing, but few times have been as good as now, in the wake of a credit crunch and housing foreclosures that pried Californian homes from would-be owners’ hands and left them deserted for skaters to come and go. Watch as Chet Childress and Fresno locals make the best of a bad situation.
