Tampa Pro 2010 Day 1 Qualifiers PHOTOS

The field in this weekend’s Tampa Pro is one of the best ever. You’ve got consistent guys like Sheckler and P-Rod, veteran rippers like Bartie and Rattray, new pros like Chris Troy and Keegan, and then of course there’s Luan Oliveira who just went pro after winning back to back Tampa Ams. Don’t forget how vicious Torey Pudwill can get (he won Copenhagen Pro and its Best Trick last summer), and the fact that he’s skating for Plan B now. If all these guys nail their runs in tomorrow’s finals, judging is going to be one hell of a job.

Qualifying results are here. Today’s video footage will be up shortly.
