BRAZILIAN DANTAS IS RED BULL MANNY MANIA WORLD CHAMP
"Joao Pedro “JP” Dantas’ steady pace and consistency beat out skaters from all over the globe to win the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final in New York City on Saturday. While many of the riders peaked in the early rounds, Dantas stepped up the trick difficultly with each round, including many switch variations, namely a switch heelflip to switch manny to switch kickflip out. "Joao had everything on lock," said pro Joey Brezinski, who created the concept behind the contest series. Dantas goes on to skate against the pros on Sunday.
