We’re out here in Kansas City for the first stop of the 2012 Street League. We’ve already got photo galleries and videos from yesterday’s practice session up. Today the qualifiers are jumping off at 6 p.m. Kansas City time. For now, check some blog photos from last night’s welcome dinner and party. We’ll be updating this daily. Follow us on Instagram for up-to-the-minute flicks! @transworldskate, @blairlylegal, @sammuller, @barney_zone, @csholland, @kevinduffel.

The Street League contest didn’t start until 6p.m. every day, so we had plenty of time to recuperate and chill during the day. Saturday we explored downtown KC for a bit. Chase Webb and Sam Muller.

And you know we stacked clips for the Barney Cam May edit.

Round about 6:30 p.m., we were back in the Sprint Center for the finals.
