The 40 riders who qualified from the previous day stepped it up a notch with the chance to win a share of the €20,000 prize and a paid trip to the Copenhagen Open next week.
Carlos Ribeiro had one of the tricks of the day with a switch flip back tail down the hubba during his Final run.
Kevin Baekkel was charging all weekend, hitting the whole park, a fair few of the walls in his runs and landing a 540 from the quater pipe into the flatbank.
Aurelien Giraud qualified first from the semi finals and carried on in the same vein in the finals. A first try kickflip from the vert ramp platform into the park followed by a 360 flip down the 7 in a line, was only equalled by a hard flip down the same drop with a broken board. The Frenchman took home the first place prize of €6000 as well as a ticket to the Copenhagen Open
Brazilian, Neverton Casella, took home the best trick prize after landing a kickflip backside noseblunt and then one-upping himself with a nollie heel backside noseblunt.
