Brett Rheeder became the first rider to claim a Crankworx Les Gets slopestyle title as he cleaned up this afternoon.

Rheeder celebrated the win with a goofy victory lap including this ridiculous look-back flip

The Canadian Joyride champion was forced to miss Rotorua with a knee injury but picked up exactly where he ledt off with a sublime run in the Alps.

After last year's event was cancelled due to rain, this was the first chance we'd had to see the riders hit the course in anger - and they truly delivered.

What could have been for Nicholi Rogatkin. A slight case on the Twister saw him shot out of the front door after a show-stopper run

Rheeder's first run score of 92.33 couldn't be toppled but Emil Johansson came closest with a 90.33 and Szymon Godziek came third on 86.66.
