Red Bull Linecatcher 2011 – UPDATED WITH VIDEO!

With perfect weather, the final day of the Red Bull Linecatcher went off and there was always going to be a tough fight for the crown. Ending up in first place was…

Sean Pettit! Starting with a double cliff drop, 360 out, he took that speed into the biggest step down of the comp to stomp a huge misty 720 mute. And just for good measure he sent a nice backflip to make sure every other competitor knew they were up against it!
In second place was Markus Eder. He kicked off with a rodeo 720 followed by a switch 540 with a 540 cliff drop towards then end and finishing the run switch! Closely following Markus was Tim Durtschi. He went 180 to switch 540, stomped a rodeo 360 and headed to the finish the line with a clean 360.

All in all it was one hell of a day and the winners were definitely deserved their spoils! Here’s the final classification of the top 15:
1. Sean Pettit
2. Markus Eder
3. Tim Durtschi
