The Pimp Cup went down on Sunday the 24th in London, Ontario and although the weather was sub-par it didn’t seem to phase the skaters at all, as some of the craziest tricks, on the craziest obstacles went down that day. The three spot, one hour each format had to be thrown out the window because of the imminent on and off again rain, so the two spots that were chosen were Byron Southwood public school and Saunders high school. The Woodland Heights public school was not used, but it certainly didn’t take away from the competition at all.
The competition started around 1:45 and there were no amateurs that entered, which lead to an all expert contest. The first spot Byron Southwood Public School consisted of many bike racks lined up. The warm up session was a good indication on the crazy tricks that went down that day. Here are some pictures to give an indication how things went down.

My name is Reneâ€™ Hulgreen, I was born in Glostrup Denmark on the 21 of Marts 1970, my mother Lilian Hagen Hansen was a nurse and my father Knud Erik Hulgreen was working on Carlsberg, I grew up in the beach town of Greve 20 km. South of Copenhagen.
As far as I can remember I have always had Roller skates, The first pair I can remember was strap on metal skates with plastic wheels, which I had when I was very little, when I was between 7 and 10 years old I had two pairs of skates, first some yellow skates with blue stripes and yellow rubber wheels, which was a lot better then my first pair of skates. The second pair was not much different, just blue with silver stripes and blue rubber wheels. Mostly I just went down small slopes or played catch with the other kids near my home, but I learned how to skate already back then.
I also jumped trampoline in the local club and became Danish champion for team at the age of 12, but knee problems forced me to stop or I would have ended up in a wheelchair. The doctor said I could only ride bikes or swim if I wanted to do any sport, and the town of Greve had the biggest Swimming bath in Denmark, so I ended up swimming, but only for a short time. Lying there in the water I saw all the platform divers having fun and thatâ€™s how I ended up becoming a platform diver, witch didnâ€™t really help my knee problem. […]

I have been a great fan of yours since Omocomo Issue 1.0 and I really love your work, all of your photoes are soo clean, what is your secret to shoot the â€˜perfectâ€™ photo?
I bought my camera without having any knowledge about photography, so I was just trying to get the thing working at first, and I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about taking photos. But the good thing was, I was still skating then so I was able to imagine the photo from the skaters perspective and the timing where the trick would look best.

One released a video of the making of the photo you can see above (featuring Franco Cammayo). You won’t see Franco lace the trick but the video is nice.
If you look closely enough at this photo that Wes Driver took of Franco Cammayo while in NYC shooting for Rockstar Bearings new ad in ONE issue #1, you can clearly see the crewâ€™s belts holding the rail to the posts as Franco launches through some water to a badass grabbed backslide.
