Last Friday, Globe Europe hosted its first invitational shop-vs-shop mini-ramp contest at their head office in the South of France. Teams flew in the night before to camp out and drink wine together before the event. Blessed with beautiful sunshine, baking heat and sporting a few headaches, the eight skateshop teams battled through the night on the mini for their chance to win 2,000 Euros. Mark Appleyard joined Globe EU riders Danny Leon and Charles Collet on the judging panel, watching (and scoring) as the shops went head to head, skating well into the night.
