Rocket Air was mind blowing. Here are some of the best images from the indoor slopestyle contest.
Martin Söderström only finished 6th at Vienna Air King last week. He seemed much more happier indoors during practice and qualification at Rocket Air. Here he performs a 360 step down.
There is a huge amount of respect among the riders for each other. During practice they all stick around to watch each others runs. Szymon Godziek's backflip nohander gets some admiring glances here from his fellow competitors.
Pavel Alekhin didn't make it to finals but is always willing to pull off a big trick or two on his qualifying runs. Check out his flatspin table here.
Louis Reboul took the Best Trick competition on Friday night (April 12) with a huge flip whip.
Friday night also saw a Rapid Fire Team Battle contest with the final between Team Scandinavia led by Martin Söderström and Team UK by Sam Pilgrim. This is the moment Team Scandinavia realised they had won.
Team Scandinavia celebrated the Team Battle win as you'd expect. Linus Sjohölm even did a backflip off the bike! Along with Martin Söderström and Linus, the other team members of Team Scandinavia were Anton Thelander, Max Fredriksson and Adrian Tell.
Thomas Genon is quickly establishing himself as one of the top riders on the Freeride scene. The likeable Belgian is also gaining a huge fan base.
Riders began their runs via a huge scaffold drop-in outside Thun arena. Szymon Godziek hauls his bike up ready to begin another run.
Brett was unable to find the form from his win at Vienna Air King last week but still finished in a credible 3rd place.
Thomas Genon didn't have the best of finals at Rocket Air. He was unable to complete both of his runs to his satisfaction but was still able to smile at the end.
Sam Pilgrim was in untouchable form in the Thun arena. His final runs were full of super high quality tricks. Judges awarded him the Rocket Air title.
The top five riders at Rocket Air were: Sam Pilgrim, Martin Söderström, Brett Rheeder, Anton Thelander and Sam Reynolds.
