Buckle up for a unique edition of Red Bull Bowl Rippers 2020 from Marseille. A stripped-back showdown promised to produce some much-needed skate action from the south of France this past weekend on October 3-4. The city’s very own son, Jean Pantaleo, beat all comers over the weekend to become the new champion of Red Bull Bowl Rippers, edging out previous winner Jaime Mateu by a single point.
In contention to put their stamp on the fabled Bowl Du Prado during this special edition of our annual seaside showdown was a 60-strong field of European shrednauts, including Elson Patrick, Danny León, Dannie Carlsen, Jean Pantaleo, Marcel Wintherlig, Anthony Mardelle, Stellio Sakellarides, Simon Léauté, Ivan Federico, Bjorn Lillesoe, Karl Berglind, Vincent Milou and Jaime Mateu.
With the weekend split into a Saturday contest and a Sunday Best Trick jam, Pantaleo doubled down on his contest victory by making an enormous transfer line into one of the bowls, a feat which had previously cost him not one, but two, broken heels.
