Our New York correspondent Joseph Perez (as well as different others) attended the event to capture the best tricks from the best Street Skaters in this world. Here is a first edit and a first review of the contest. Read on.

August 28th 2010 has now come and gone.... But nonetheless it was a remarkable weekend for me. This day is known for the Last Man Standing Pro Competition held in Upper West Manhattan at a spot that many do not skate for fun called The Pit. The Pit is a good area because the residents nor police bother rollerbladers at all. One thing is for sure though, The Pit is not a session spot but a very dangerous spot that has tested many. On this day a fellow New York Roller and friend was injured when he crossed the path of the last spot on this day. Recover well and soon Jesus Medina. I would like to say that it was very difficult to film this competition because there were so many others trying to spectate, film and photograph at the spots. I did the best I could do to put this out and make it look good, so enjoy. The turn out was 100+ including Pro's and Am's alike. This edit Features Nick Wood, Brian Aragon, Nick Uhas, Julian Bah, Dre Powell, Mark Wojda, Jesus Medina, Tim Franken, Rob Guerrero, Trevor Johnson, Ramelle Knight, Alex Nunez, Jimmy Shuda, David Sizemore, Jeff Dalnes, Evan Grimball, Jose Henriquez, Dave Lang, Dan Breuer, Mason Richards, James Perez and many more.
