(Updated) Kelvin Hoefler is unstoppable. Fresh off yesterday's Street win, he took out the Streetstyle event today.
Trevor Colden took the 2nd spot - it was a nice change seeing a new face on the podium. Meanwhile, Ryan Decenzo pleased the fans with his 3rd place finish - it's been awhile since he had a top 3 finish.
Ryan Sheckler finished 6th, but whatever the case may be, he'll always be considered one of the greatest.
Yesterday, the Street event didn't disappoint. Packed stands watched as Hoefler took his second straight win, after already winning in Chicago a couple of months ago.
Louis Lopez, who also made the podium back in June, took the 2nd spot, while Shane O’Neill rounded it up in 3rd. The competition was tough with a bunch of heavyweights that included Paul Rodrigues, Chris Joslin and Shaun Malto.
The course was made of three sections with an A-frame, rail, hubbas, stairs, a flat bar and round bar being hit biggest obstacles. The final score was a combined total of the first two sections and the final section.
O’Neil is proving himself to be one to watch, showing he has plenty of skill. Louis Lopez keeps doing great was it wasn’t a surprise to see him in 2nd.
Heofler’s style is to skate big, but he had to tone it down slightly, which could've been the key to his win. He “started the third session with simple tricks and landed those right away and moved on to harder tricks." Harder alright, with a run that included a kickflip backside noseblunt on the rail and a cab backside tail on the rail.
