Carlos Paixão Dominates Qualifying
Teutonia, Brazil - Carlos Paixão shocked the establishment today when he set the quickest time of the day in qualifying for tomorrow’s Top Skate Pro Teutonia World Cup Open Downhill Skateboarding race. Paixão recorded a time of 1:21.320 seconds on his first run and then showed his consistency on the second run when he ran a time only .130 slower but still fast enough to be the second quickest time of the day. He's won all three rounds of the Brazilian Amateur DH Skate Series this year and has already wrapped up that title. There is a lot of strategy that goes into winning Teutonia so it remains to be seen if Paixão can convert his raw speed and limited experience into a World Cup victory.
