His flip double whip won Yannick Granieri a deserved first place in the best trick categors but it was a rather close victory. Norwegian Olav Fjaere almost celebrated a world premiere by just barely missing landing the very first flip triple whip. Even without a clean landing, this trick was nothing short of a sensation but no match for the Frenchman’s clean execution.

The prize for the best line went to the rider who best used the course and showed the best run overall. Martin Soderstrom clearly deserved the title for this one. He was one of the very few who showed a trick on the second hit, in this case a barspin. The Swede dropped off the castle with a 360 table and launched an impressive 360 tuck to tailwhip off the big kicker.

Louis Reboul is one of the riders who secured a spot on the rider’s list with his submission to the Contour Wanna be a Knight contest. All newcomer knights delivered a solid performance at the contest and Louis promptly whipped himself into first place.

Several riders had more than decent airtime on the big kicker, but nobody had more air under their tires than host Andi Wittmann and Kurt Sorge. They both cleared almost nine meters from the ground and made it impossible for the judges to pick the higher jump. Both definitely earned the number one spot.
