In a very exciting 26TRIX “final”, 16-year-old (!) Emil Johansson (SWE) and Nico Scholze (GER) were able to stun judges and fans alike and secure their spot for the FMB Diamond Event Swatch Prime Line at MASH.
The young Swede scored a massive 87.33 points, landing just ahead of Thomas Genon (87.00) in fifth place. Scholz was awarded the FMB wildcard after he came in eighth scoring 84.00 in his best run. Both were the best ranked riders in Leogang, who had not yet qualified for the third event of the FMB Diamond Series, which will take place in Munich (GER) on July 2nd.
Emil Johansson: “I haven’t realised it yet. My friend came to me and said, that I was probably going to win the wildcard for the FMB Diamond Event ‘Swatch Prime Line’. I didn’t believe him, but it has come true. I never expected it. It’s huge to go to a Diamond Series Event.”
