SOSH Freestyle Cup Marseille 2012 organised by World Cup Skateboarding: Results and Pictures

The second stop on the 2012 WCS European summer tour at Marseille was one of the most exciting skate contests ever! isTia had renowned skater-photographer Fred Ferand over there to immortalize the Sosh Freestyle Cup 2012. The contest was held in the legendary Bowl at the Espace Borely. There have been so many great sessions at the Borely Bowl over the past 20 years with skate legendary skaters like Wade Speyer, Danny Way, Omar Hassan, Rune Glifberg, Tony Trujillo, etc..

And this year was just another classic week! Within hours of arriving in Marseille the buzz was that Dogtown team rider Charlie Blair was at the park for the first time ever and had already landed a blunt to fakie on the massive 4' vert extension! Eventually, Dogtown's Charlie Blair put it all together to take the much deserved win at the Sosh Freestyle Cup 2012 in Marseille.

Charlie edged out Marseille local ripper Julien Benoliel, who fall during the last run and left on the bottom of the bowl stoned for sevela minutes and fellow American Nolan Monroe to take home 3000 EUR. Blair tore up every inch of the park with moves that included a frontside 270 over the spine, an ultra-precise nosepick, huge transfers galore, stalefish, kickflip frontside air, and all manner of grinds.

The deal-closer was his blunt stall to kickflip off the big vert wall.
Judges evaluated the skaters on the following criteria: variety of tricks, fluidity in linking tricks, height of jumps, transfer of bowls, use of the skatepark and its features, and use of switch tricks. There was a LiveStream webcast courtesy of World Cup Sk8 and Dailymotion for skate fans worldwide.
We will never know if Julien Benoliel would have win without his fall…

The skate contest in the concrete bowl had riders competing for WCS points. This was the fifth year for the Freestyle Cup – the third year that it is a World Cup SK8 event –
