The sun was shining since the early morning hours but threats of rain moved the finals forward 2 hours. This didn't stop the riders from throwing down the biggest tricks we have seen so far this season!

It all started on Friday when Adrian Tell won the last Wildcard for Red Bull Berg Line at the SKS Slopestyle. The next day on Saturday  afternoon, Szymon Godziek won the Best Trick competition with a flawless Cashroll.

It was obvious that the massive crowd which gathered to witness the action was not going to be dissapointed during the finals on Sunday. Qualifying was nail-biting with big names not making it into the top 12. The riders tried their best to rise to the top but in the end it was Brett Rheeder who put together the ideal winning run. His whole performance was flawless and featured his usual opposite tricks and massive backflip one-foot X-Up!

Saying that, their can be no doubt that Sam Pilgrim is the man of the hour as his sent a huge backflip from the starting tower. Sam continued his run with signature backflip no handers and stylish 360's.

So far Anton Thelander has had a great season, with good results at Vienna Air King and Swatch Rocket Air Slopestyle but today Anton entered a whole new level as he stepped on to the podium in third place. The young talent showed everyone that he is a real contender in the 2013 season. Dropping in with 360 X-up's and executing perfect 360 tailwhips and flipwhips, his run was smooth and super technical.
