While Godziek may be leaving with the title, it was the run of Lucas Huppert that won the crowd's heart. The eighteen-year-old Zurich local and 2018 Red Bull Rookie of the Year brought the arena to a roar with an impressive first run landing him in 5th. Chainsaws rumbled for Huppert’s second run but a crash ended his chance at the podium.

The volunteers, organizers, riders and audience came ready to party! The birthday themed course complete with a swing set, remote control car, cake and giant confetti bomb gave the audience a colorful backdrop for the rider's full gas runs.
