5 Nations at the Modena Rookie Fest

With skaters coming from Argentina, Austria, France, Romania and of course Italy, the first edition of the Modena Rookie Fest showcased a great level of skateboarding, not only in the competition venue, but also during some street sessions. In fact the program of the event was not based only on a competition, but included as well a touristic visit of Modena city Center where several UNESCO heritage are located, italian food experience, night session and street session with local guide and a professional media crew.

Due to bad weather conditions, the skateboard competition moved to the indoor skatepark “Rock&Ride” where the participants competed for 2 all inclusive invitation to the 2021 World Rookie Skateboarding Finals in Innsbruck, Austria.

Agus Aquila from Argentina resulted the best rider of the day, with a massive style and many technical tricks on every obstacle while Maicol Fantini won the grom male category.  Both will compete next week in Innsbruck at the WRT SK8 Finals.
