Vans Park Series congratulates Alex Sorgente for a remarkable first place performance at the VPS Sweden men's Pro Tour event earlier today. As the current World Champion, Sorgente’s victory marks his second time claiming glory at Kroksbäck Skatepark, after dominating the built-to-spec park terrain course at the VPS World Championships last year.
Demonstrating incredible accuracy and lightning speed throughout his runs, Sorgente remarks, “I’m ecstatic. I can’t believe I won here again. There’s really no limitations at this park, you can go big, long grinds, big airs, everything mixed together makes it really great.”

Tour Challenger Tom Schaar’s precision and trick variety landed him in 2nd place, further securing his Challenger rankings lead and earning him his second podium appearance in the season after winning in Australia in March.
Finally, it was no surprise that the capacity Malmö crowds went wild for local boy Karl Berglind, whose seamless runs and creative combinations in the semi’s and finals put him in 3rd place, securing his first podium placement in the series so far. “I’m speechless,” Berglind gushes. “Just being in the final was a win for me. Everyone was fired up and I needed that pressure on me to step it up.” An honorable mention also goes out to fellow Malmö native Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg, after executing an outstanding miracle run in the Semi’s to send the Sweden audience roaring.
