The good folks over at Dime and Vans are back at it again with the 2016 “Glory Challenge.” Created to defy the traditional concept and monotony of skate contests, it has become one of the most entertaining competitions in existence. 40 handpicked skaters such as Rob “Sluggo” Boyce, Lee Yankou, Dustin Dollin, and Evan Smith headed to Montreal to compete in a series of ridiculous challenges that offered cash prizes up to $25,000 CAD (approximately $19,134 USD). This included clearing gaps between boxes, boardsliding a high rail, and even a gladiator challenge where the contenders literally bodied each other in a fight to stay on their boards. For a hefty grand prize of $100,000 CAD (approximately $76,552 USD), the main event pitted reigning champion, Wade DesArmo against internet legend, Jamal Smith in a game of SKATE. Check out the full descriptions of the challenges below, and let us know below if this year lived up to last years Glory Challenge.
