MANUAL SKATE COMP ARRIVES BACK IN THE UK
www.redbullmannymania.co.uk

After two highly successful years Red Bull Manny Mania is back and will be coming to Manchester on Saturday 5th June.  The competition, which has gone truly global this year, has been rolled out to 32 countries.  Now all the best amateur manual tricksters on the planet will battle it out in an attempt to be crowned 2010 champ.

Red Bull Manny Mania has always been about connecting skaters and encouraging the highest level of technical trickery on two wheels. In 2010, Red Bull Manny Mania will expand around the globe to a world wide contest that will take amateur winners from countries as far ranging as South Africa, Oman, Japan and Chile… to name but a few!

Skaters in the 32 countries will battle it out in local competitions to earn their spot at their National Final in their home country. The winners of these national finals will be sent to the United States on an all expenses paid trip, to represent their country at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs in New York City on August 21, 2010. The one amateur skater who defeats every other in the global field will get their chance to step into the big leagues – a spot in the invite-only Red Bull Manny Mania Pro Event, on Sunday, August 22.

Come down to The Pump Cage skatepark in Manchester (M1 2PG) on 5th June for some Manny Mania!
