White Style is always a good yard stick for which dirt jumpers are looking hot coming into the season. This weekend it was Torquato Testa who looked the strongest as he took the win on Austrian soil.
This is the first big win of the 23-year-old Italian’s career and follows on from his career best sixth at last year’s Crankworx Rotorua. Second place went to Simon Pages with Nico Scholze in third. The best ranked Brit was Freddy Pulman in sixth.
The winner of the GoPro Best Trick was Diego Caverzasi from Italy, who properly sent it with a backflip opposite triple barspin.
White Style said: “Once again, the slopestyle course at Schanteilift in Leogang, Austria, was on fire! Especially fiery was the Italian winner Torquato Testa, who threw down the biggest tricks and earned the White Style crown for 2017. Frenchman Simon Pagès took the second place and Nico Scholze from Germany landed in 3rd.
“Another highlight of the event was the Scott Snow Downhill Race: while the slopestyle stars were warming up for the finals, about 60 ambitious Downhill riders participated in the race, keeping the spectators at it.”
