Ryan Decenzo battled five other skaters to take the top qualifying place at the SLS Select Series event at X Games Los Angeles. With all skaters landing some point filled tricks, Decenzo was closely matched with Felipe Gustavo who was holding the first place spot for quite a bit of the competition. He landed a 360 flip wish pushed him into first place. He held on to that lead as Gustavo battled to take it back. Decenzo's X Games performance was clean, put together and executed well. It was also a lot of fun to watch. Evan Smith did some wall riding which made the crowd erupt in chants. Ultimately Decenzo lit up the X Games scoreboard taking the top spot.
Decenzo will move on to X Games Skateboarding's Street League Prelims, Friday, August 2 at L.A. Live.
