The Rider Cup Team Skateboarding Championship will be held in New York City’s five boroughs this summer: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. The New York City Rider Cup will take place over a six week period every Saturday beginning July 12, with the Finals held August 16 at Lower East Side Skatepark in Manhattan. Local skateboarders will form teams to represent their boroughs and compete in a jam format contest for a shot at a $10,000 cash prize and an all-expenses paid trip to South Africa to compete in the World Skateboarding Rider Cup championships during the 2014 Kimberley Diamond Cup.
