Bart van der Linden flipped, jumped, spun and dropped his way to an impressive victory in the Red Bull Art of Motion 2016 finals.

Against the majestic backdrop of the white-washed clifftop houses of Oia on Santorini, the Dutchman landed on top of the podium after outrunning the contest favourites Dimitris Kyrsanidis and Pavel Petkuns, and grabbing his first ever Red Bull Art of Motion win from American pairing Alfred Scott and Joey Adrian.
