The weather in Budapest was unfortunately warm which didn’t help the kicker but it certainly didn’t deflate the spirits of all the riders! After a few hours of reshaping, the event got underway after a short delay and it kicked off! Because of the delay, the organisers had to change the format of the competition to the standard best two runs format.
The results from this were as follows:
1- Elias Ambuhl – landed a huge tweaked dub10 mute
2- Pk Hunder – dub cork 10 mute nose poke
3- JF Houle – dub 12 tail
4- Russ Henshaw – switch dub 9 mute
5- Jacob Wester – dub 10 mute
6- Markus Eder – switch Bio 10
7- Niklas Erikson – dub cork 10 mute
8- Jon Olsson – dub cork 10 safety
9- Paddy Graham – dub 10 mute
10- Antti Ollila – dub cork 10
11- Pepe Kalensky – 1080 mute
12- Lukas Bruccic – switch 7 japan
13- Oscar Scherlin – 1080 mute nose
14- Guillaume Sbrava – rodeo 10
15- Lolo Favre – took a huge spill and ended up second last
16- Sam Favret – unfortunately didn’t jump
As you can see the double corks were the order of the day again with Elias leading the way. Jon Olsson down in 8th landing the trick that had him much higher in the rankings at Freeze.
Only the top 3 were put into the super final which ran with the same format. JF Houle brought up the rear with a massive double cork 12 japan but it wasn’t enough to get him the victory. In a close second was PK Hunder who stomped a double cork 10 nose mute that made the crowd go wild. However, with Elias on the form that he is at the moment, it wasn’t to be for PK. Elias landed an even bigger double cork 10 nose mute that he over tweaked and ticked all the boxes for the judges.
