The riders at the contest were all at a very high level, Asti from Muckefuck did a good job in bringing together a lot of good riders from Europe and the USA.
During the first day there were cash for trick sessions along three sections of the street park. Also, three skaters qualified for the finals in the bowl the following day.
The finals of the bowl were hectic, with a very high level of skateboarding going on – above all, Brad McClain. I appreciated a lot Martino (Cattaneo) and Alex (Hallford) who fought till the end with a lot of tricks and hunger. I loved the style of Kevin (Kowalski) and Jürgen (Horrwarth). I missed being able to see Cody Lockwood in action because he got injured a few days earlier in Milan and joined Asti and Ben Daeleman in the jury.
