Presented by Carhartt
Street, Vert, Mini-Ramp Bowl, Girls Jam
August 20-22, 2004
ItҒs once again time for the etnies European Skateboard Championships, featuring Street, Vert, Mini-Ramp Bowl and, for the girls, their very own Jam. Saturday nights entertainment is also guaranteed with a concert at the Sommercasino. This year, Carhartt is presenting the Championships on August 20-22, 2004 in Basel, Switzerland.
Carhartt has actively been supporting the skateboarding scene throughout Europe for over ten years, and etnies organizes worldwide international skateboard events to promote the passion for skateboarding. This particular collaboration has made it possible to present the largest skateboarding championships in the three-country border corner of Basel for the fourth time. Not only that, but the artificial ice rink Margarethen, lovingly known in Basel as the ғKunschti, a traditional place for sport meetings such as the Davis Cup tennis tournaments and ice hockey world championships, is the ideal place for the event.
The European title will be given away once again this year and more than 300 skateboarders from over sixteen nations are expected: Arto Saari (Finland), Bastien Salabanzi (France), Rune Glifberg (Denmark), Wieger van Wageningen (Netherlands), Dominik Dietrich (Australia), Danny Wainwright (UK), Florentin Marfaing (Germany), Marc Haziza (France), Chris Pfanner (Australia), Oli BԼrgin (Czech), Jrgen Horrwarth (Germany), Jo Lorenz (Germany) Ali Cairns (UK), Nicky Guerrero (Denmark) and Tom Penny (UK) with further special guests. Top riders will be competing for prize money of EUR 30,000.
IOU will provide the excellent street course, which was already used for the etnies European Open in Munich this year. For the etnies European Championships, the course will be equipped with some new features and surprises. Vertical is supplying the King Size II and the mini-ramp bowl combination, which will guarantee excellent vert skating. The vert ramp will be placed in front of the Kunschti쓔. Vertical is also supplying a public street course so that even the spectators can let off steam.
The Top 100 skateboarders are directly qualified for the Street Qualification on Saturday. Everybody else needs to make their way through the Pre-Qualification on Friday. A list with the names of the Top 100 riders can be found on www.skateboardeurope.com. The Semi-Finals are scheduled on Saturday and the Finals will be held on Sunday.
