Friday: Wildcard Event
On July 6th it was time for the qualification to join the 45 invited riders at Red Bull Bomb the Line 2012 supported by Arnette. After a 90 minutes long battle it was clear which five rippers earned themselves a wildcard for the main event on Saturday: Robin Wulf (GER), Mack McKelton (GER), Georg Balkhamishvili (GER), Philipp Josephu (AUT) and Jason Choi (KOR)
Saturday: Main Event
50 skaters and three obstacles - everybody was stoked to see who will be crowned king of the world famous spot. After two impressive heats at the double set with hubba, the kicker and the ten stair set with a handrail the weather forced the skaters to take a break and wait for the sun to come back. After a couple of rainy hours the spot was dry again and it was time for two more heats and the finals.
All the guys were killing it but Shane O´Neill convinced the judges with a nollie nosegrind at the hubba, a perfect switchflip over the kicker and finally a nollie backside heelflip down the ten stairs. Mark Fröhlich came in second with a frontside noseslide – backside flip – backside 180 fakie nosegrind line (first try!) and Mark Zaprasny made the third place.
Check out the clip with some rad footage of the event. Enjoy!
