Last weekend was the annual Money For Trick contest at the Ruben Alcantara skatepark over in Malaga, Spain! The concept is pretty straight forward, you come out and ride and have a good time, and you win money and prizes all along the way! This year was nothing short of amazing with 200 riders that registered to ride the different events from the park and street contest to the Money Obstacles Race and more. This photogallery contains photos from throughout the day from pros to the young guns. Plenty of smiles! Below you can find a few words from Fernadno Marmolejo who organized the event and took all of these photos!
“With 200 registered riders from all corners of the country and other parts of Europe like the UK, Greece, Germany and France, the “Rubén Alcántara” Skatepark was packed once more. With one of the best bowls in the world, the level of riding going on was unbeatable. Riders like Juanillo from Chile blew minds doing a massive whip transfer, winning 200€ for the Best Trick contest. The “Follow Me” contest with Sergio Layos, Kevin Kalkoff and Greg Illingworth left everyone speechless with their incredible airs and style. After everyone had some Monster, we began the new event for this year, the M.O.R.(Money Obstacles Race). This event a had great response from the riders and that achieved its goal… Not focusing on the tricks and just having fun! Cristian Toledo made the best time overall with 11.37 seconds taking the 100€ prize!
After that, the dirt contest followed with some amazing flow from Miguel Cuesta, who took €200 for the Best Style. The Street contest was savage, there were a lot of riders wanting to give it their all, so we had to make 4 groups for this event… Courage Adams and Jason Eustathiou ended up with plenty of 5€ bills thanks to their amazing control and style. The Canary, Javi Castilla, won €200 for the best creativity with an oppo tooth to crank arm grind to 360… The crowd was loving every second of it and we gave away over €1000 in prizes like Vans Shoes, United frames and bars, Oakley Sunglasses and Polaroid cameras just by upload a photo on Instagram.
After things wrapped up, the after party started… All we can say is it was crazy!
Another year of Money For Trick down, with the REAL BMX atmosphere all day long… The event never would have been possible without the unconditional support of Monster Energy and the collaboration of United BMX, Vans, Oakley, BMX Union and Wallride Mag. Thank you for your support!” – Fernadno Marmolejo
