The ultimate expression of style, flinging a bike sideways past 90 then smothering it back in for a harpoon landing.
In the Rotorua amphitheatre, under floodlights, the legends of freeride joined young pretenders to quell a packed crowd.
With just one big hit to throw down on, the pressure was on from the first drop in.
The final four for the men saw Ryan Howard, Kaos Seagrave, Tyler McCail and Dave McMillan compete for glory. R-Dog’s timeless style won out again. In the women, Casey Brown was at her humbling best, she’s got these comps sewn up for a good few years to come.
