Celebrating the first anniversary of the Péitruss skate park in the heart of Luxembourg City, the "LXB-Cup" took place over the weekend.

And the event certainly proved popular as many skaters performed while large crowds watched spectacular tricks and jumps, accompanied by live music. Even skating lessons were on offer.

The two-day event pitted skaters of all ages against each other in a fierce competition for a total prize-winnings amount of €10,000.

But eventually Nick Steenbeke came out on top as the clear winner. Second place went to Benjamin Garcia and third to Simon Deprez.

Wort’s photographer was present to capture photos of the first edition of the LXB-Cup that will be back again next year.
