Sam "LeopardHead" Pilgrim took the win in a stacked field at the Vienna Air King competition. Sam is one of the brightest talents in Dirt Jumping right now and has a busy season ahead of him.

He was still sleeping off the celebrations when we phoned this morning and his mum had to wake him up, but he did tell us that his winning run was a flip one foot x-up, superman seat grab followed by a 360 tailwhip. He said he was pretty nervous on his first run but after that he was super relaxed. Watch out for the leopard at the Qashqai in Milan this weekend.
