White Rock skateboarder Andy Anderson is set to be among the field at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair, as part of the fifth annual World Freestyle Round-Up Skateboarding Championship.

In total, 28 competitors from 11 different countries are expected to take part, including world champion Per Wellinder, who was Michael J. Fox’s skateboarding stunt-double in Back to the Future.
