The third and final Street League contest is in the books and it was a Vegas barnburner.
The LCQ was a literal huck fest â€” two heats of hungry pros battling for the seventh spot in the finals by jumping, grinding, and sliding down the large-scale eight-stair Rincon replica.

Ryan Sheckler stomped the heck out of nearly everything he tried and, you know, stomping and trying are scored high in the Street League, so he advanced.
Then it was on like Donkey Kong. Seven dudes, four sections of rip-tearing, and seven tries in each section.
