District Ride Best Trick: 5 novità assolute

2

Ben 5 trick mai visti prima hanno coronato la finale del Best Trick della Redbull District Ride, di cui due chiusi da Diego Caverzasi. Eccoveli nel video degli highlights. Vince, come al solito, l’alieno Emil Johannson.

Sabato 3 settembre la diretta della District Ride qui.

The Red Bull District Ride is back with impressive results! Five years after the last Urban Slopestyle Festival in Nuremberg, the best riders in the world showed that they too are ready for the big show. Today, much like the rest of the season, Emil Johansson (SWE) stood out in particular. Emil deservedly secured victory in the Best Trick Contest with a 360 tailwhip to barspin to opposite downside tailwhip. Among the women competing for the first time ever in Big Air at Redbull District Ride, Gemma Corbera (ESP) crowned herself champion with a nice big backflip.

Spectacular action right at the start: Rider Emil Johansson wins the Best Trick Contest with a mind blowing 360 tailwhip to barspin to opposite downside tailwhip.

In addition to the usual suspects of Dawid Godziek (POL), Emil Johansson (SWE) and Nicholi Rogatkin (USA), all of the riders were charging for the top spot. Nico Scholze (GER) and Alejandro Bonafe (ESP) were throwing down crazy combinations. Alejandro Bonafe pulled off a world’s first when he landed a perfect cash roll tailwhip to barspin while Nico Scholze (GER) was laying out super extended backflip supermans.

Unfortunately for them, it was not enough as Dawid Godziek, Diego Caverzasi (ITA), and Emil Johansson would also be putting down world’s firsts. While Rogatkin didn’t do a world’s first, he did pull off a 1440, a trick only he has ever done before.

Godziek held onto the lead for a long time with his twister-tuck no hander to barspin until Emil bumped him out of the top spot with his own world’s first with the 360 tailwhip to barspin to opposite downside tailwhip. This would secure the lead for Emil giving him a first place in Best Trick while also currently sitting in the top spot with one run of slopestyle complete.

  1. Grandissimo Diego!
    Mi fa sorridere vederlo con la sua maglietta "less sugo more tonno" in mezzo agli alieni con casco Redbull.
    Speriamo di rivederlo presto ai Crankworx!

    Hai proprio ragione, non riesco a capire perchè qualche sponsor non si faccia avanti, è vero che è stato lontano dalle gare per un po', ma mi auguro che questo evento gli dia nuovamente la visibilità che merita e che qualche sponsor importante si faccia avanti.
