Congratulations to Emerica team rider Jamie Tancowny, who won $5,000 and the top am title in the fourth annual Downtown Showdown contest at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California on Saturday, October 11, 2008. The Downtown Showdown featured some of the best street skaters on Earth plying their trade on a new set of custom obstacles.
