Montreal, QC. (July 9, 2019) – After an absolutely electric VPS event in Brazil two weeks ago, the fierce pool of competitors are back, looking to elevate their performance in Montréal, Canada for the third qualifier event of the 2019 Vans Park Series Pro Tour. As a critical midway-point of the season, competitors will head to the Montréal Olympic Park, the landmark site of the 1976 Summer Olympics, this weekend, July 12-13 to once again improve their Park Series rankings. With the 2019 VPS World Championships only two months away, skaters are feeling the pressure to showcase the very best of what they’ve got.

This is a historic stop both for the Park Series tour and the country of Canada, as skaters will experience for the first time, over 38,000 square feet of brand new, permanent built-to-spec park terrain, donated by Vans Park Series and the Montréal Olympic Park to the province of Québec. This skatepark will be the first-ever Canadian VPS-certified park terrain legacy course. The new park — christened the Vans Skatepark — will be free, open to the public, accessible to skateboarders of all skill levels and aims to nurture skate culture and local community.

Canadian talent hoping to earn a wildcard spot in the men's competition include Riley Boland, Adam Hopkins, and James Clarke, along with Montréal native Phil Dulude. In the women's event, it'll be Bailey McDonald, Fay Ebert, Frédérique Luyet, and Laura Girvan representing Canada.

Check out the latest confirmed field of competitors for the Canada stop, including new challengers, and tune in to watch some of the most talented skaters from all over the world battle it out on Saturday, July 13 on, at 12pm EST.
