Dawid Godziek had to give it his all in the second run after crashing in the first. A combination of tricks, including a ‘Frontflip Bar Spin to Tuck No Hander on Double Truck Driver Off’, a ‘Twister No Hander’, and a ‘Triple Tailwhip’, scored him 96.75 points.

In the women’s event, Robin Goomes set the standard with an impressive score of 94.5, remaining unbeatable despite strong performances from her competitors.
