Yannick Granieri was the unlucky one today. On his first run he messed his t-shirt and fall after hitting the quarter. In his 2nd run he got things right and was one of the few who hit the open loop properly.

It was one of the hardest contests to find a place for shooting without having a crane in the lens. Here is an old tabbaco store which was kind enough to let us have fun from their windows.

 Brandon everyone is getting bored with how easily you do cork 720's and someone else does them just as good. Ok how bout I throw in a barspin as well? Yeah that'll blow their f*cking minds. Every time Rheeder steps up Brandon steps up just that little bit more. Rheeder and Messere need top start front flipping drops again next year or something.

 It was such a good contest and look at the crowd! I hope they see that germany is hungry for the sport and they give us Bergline back in 2015... But how can it happen that the course designer create an unjumpable obstacle like the pick up hip... that was kind of sad and a boring place of the track. In the end it was one of the sickest contest of the year. A completely different track like that was very exciting!
