18.54 Foivos goes for a sick no handed burner! He surely sent it!
18.48 It’s time for the last category: Send it!!!

18.29 Adam Sims goes for a Culo! Let’s see what the judges think of that.
18.18 Foivos Tsoupras does an impressive in the straps start but doesnt like the wave set up and bails. He is now allowed to re-do his run.

17.00 Yentel Caers, Sam Esteve and Lennart Neubauer all choose the Airfunnel Burner Combo.
16.53 Adam Sims tries to time a spock Culo so that the Culo is off of the wave. Unfortunately he fails in what would have been the nicest combo so far
16.49 Tsoupras does a massive funnel into Airfunnel. Should propel him to the top of the leaderboard!
16.43 Newcomer Lucie Honegger goes for a burner! Very impressive from the young Swiss rider. Val Erzen goes for the double funnel but doesnt make it around the second rotation.
16.40 Next category: Combo! Lets see what the riders come up with!
16.39 Correction, Esteve takes the Air category
16.36 Lennart Neubauer is surely taking the win in the Air category with his run…
