Results are in and Zink wins with the help of an incredible 360 of the Oakley Icon Sender drop. WOW! Gee Atherton, 2nd place, was the only one to stick the big gap/wallride/hip transfer and he did that in first run, opting not to take a final run. His line into it seemed to make the difference.

Darren Berrecloth's line was very tech, sketchy and ended with a nice 360 on his 2nd attempt, boosting him to 3rd overall. Bourdo had a really rad, tech line, too.

Thomas Vanderham suicided the big Canyon Gap, but scores down that line didn't seem to be as high as the other lines.

Andreu crashed on a no hander flip on his 2nd run, so his first run score held up.

Gulevich was in perfect control off the Oakley sender, into a big flip followed by some of the smoothest table top/motowhips off the following jump.

Strait did some pretty gnarly, stretched out suicides on the Oakley Icon Sender drop. He crashed on an over-jumped Indian air on his 2nd run.

Wind came up and put a hold on the event for about an hour, but things calmed down and finished strong.

What a great day, all the riders and event staff did an incredible job. Props and thank you!

More to come.

This should mean Zink is the BEST in the World now, and the International Freeride Mtb Association will kick down a check for 30,000 dollars too !!!

What an awesome day of riding. There were so many amazing moments. Gee's run was the so freaking smooth and styly. I thought he was gonna take it. He made the hip gap step down thing look so easy. It was perfectly executed. The retrospectives during the weather delay were hilarious in the context of the incredible smooth riding of all the competitors today. It had to start somewhere...
