On August 9, (10th if you live in the USA) Vans Park Series Pro Tour skaters will meet in Paris/Chelles, France for the final qualifiers before the World Championships in Salt Lake City in September.

Held at the brand-new permanent VPS-certified built-to-spec course – Vans-Cosanostra Skatepark de Chelles – participants will get a chance to test out the new terrain, while local skate aficionados will witness the world’s best park terrain skating event. The Chelles location is one of three new park terrain constructions that Vans Park Series is donating in 2019.

Coming off back-to-back first place wins in Brazil and Canada, Yndiara Asp will be one of the ones to watch at this fourth stop of the tour as she looks to keep her lead going into the finals. Representing France, women’s challenger Shani Bru is slated to show-off on her home turf with hopes to secure one of the top five spots to advance to World Championships.
