“There’s nothing better than Street League Skateboarding and we are really excited to sponsor the series again this year. For DC it’s been a strategic and significant partnership over the years, and Street League really aligns with DC’s ‘vision’ of being the most sought after skate-driven action sports brand in the world. It has the best skate format, best environment, best viewing and it’s where the best in the world compete, including some of our DC skaters. We’re very proud to be a part of the Street League Pro Tour and looking forward to the 2012 series,” said DC President, Anton Nistl.
This year’s Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled By Monster Energy has four DC riders that will be competing this year. Chris Cole, Nyjah Huston, Mike Mo Capaldi, and Mikey Taylor will join twenty other top tier skaters each trying to bring home the largest prize purse in all of skateboarding with $1.6 million up for grabs. Street League is also the creation of DC’s very own Rob Dyrdek.
