Despite a last-minute time change caused by last weekend's rainy weather, an estimated 6,000 spectators came to Hart Plaza in Detroit to watch the Red Bull Hart Lines skateboarding competition. The event, which featured qualifying rounds on Friday and finals on Saturday, transformed Hart Plaza into a skateboarding contest course. It was free and open to the public.

On Saturday, Curren Caples (Ventura, Calif.) was awarded first place honors for both completing his runs the fastest. Torey Pudwill (Simi Valley, Calif.) landed second place and (San Clemente, Calif.) Ryan Sheckler — who conceived the event — came in third.
