Kyle Wester Wins Teutonia!
Teutonia, Brazil - Kyle Wester from Denver, Colorado, USA has won the IGSA Top Skate Pro Teutonia World Cup! He qualifed in the third spot and faced number one qualifier Carlos Paixão from Brazil in the final. This is the first World Cup win by Wester who also had victories in the Laguna Seca Invitational and Rubber City Gravity Games earlier this year. The victory is also significant in that it is the first IGSA World Cup win for his wheel sponsor Road Rider. Road Rider has been around since te 70's and was the first company to ever put precision bearings in a skateboard wheel. They've returned to the sport in a big way this year with a massive R&D program that appears to have paid big dividends.
