Here is what the Street League site had to say….

“Seattle, Wash. (May 8, 2011) – The first stop of the 2011 Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy lived up to the hype with thousands of fans witnessing the world’s best skateboarders competing for a top spot worth $150,000 and a golden ticket directly to the SLS Championship. When it was all over, 2010 Street League Champion Nyjah Huston was the winner, edging out Shane O’Neill and Chaz Ortiz for the top spot. Perhaps the most memorable moment was on Huston’s last attempt, when he landed a backside 270 nose bluntslide on the big section rail for the highest scoring trick of Street League to-date and ending the event as the crowd roared. With that trick, Huston also took home the Monster Energy Best Trick Award worth another $15,000.  Stop One’s finals also showcased some fresh faces in the series, with Mike Mo Capaldi, Mikey Taylor, and Billy Marks making their finals debut.”
