Red Bull Roller Coaster

 

Munich’s best skaters compete for wildcards for RED BULL ROLLER COASTER

A total of 18 skaters from the German-speaking world lined up at the National Qualifier on Go Skateboarding Day to battle it out for just two wildcards for the main event at MASH 2018, where they would have the chance to go up against the 16 invited pros from eight countries around the world in a brand new format to find the best all-round skater. There were thrills and spills aplenty as the skaters pushed themselves to the limit.

In the end it was 17-year-old Tyler Edtmayer who came out on top with huge hangtime and a sick BS 360 over the Water Gap on his second run. The second wildcard went to Jan Hoffmann.

The final of the RED BULL ROLLER COASTER delivered skateboarding at its very finest.

The ten finalists, including America’s Fabina Delfino as the only female rider in the field, pulled out trick after trick in front of the huge crowd spread across the hill overlooking the Olympic Lake. During qualifying the 15 male and three female skaters and had already set the bar incredibly high, but the final of Saturday took things to a whole new level. Only a true all-rounder would have a chance of claiming the title here – and in the end it was Jake Ilardi (USA) who showed nerves of steel with a sick final run which thrilled both the spectators and his fellow skaters. Speed, technical tricks and huge airtime were the key to success for Ilardi, who proved that he is the personification of a true all-terrain ripper. Second place at the premiere of the RED BULL ROLLER COASTER went to Spain’s Danny Leon, with America’s Curren Caples taking third.

RED BULL ROLLER COASTER TEASER

Wakeboard Park

Wakeboard Park

Raph Derom is certainly a man who will take away good memories of MASH and the Olympic Park. Derom won not only the Best Trick Contest but also the superfinal of the WAKEBOARD PARK event on Sunday on the brand new set-up on the Olympic Lake. The Canadian had been looking good all weekend and managed to perform when it mattered to defeat last year’s winner and fellow favourite Guenther Oka (USA) in second and America’s Blake Bishop in third.

In front of a home crowd, Germany’s Nico von Lerchenfeld (Cologne) and Felix Georgii (Kranzegg) were unable to make it past the qualifying stage of the WAKEBOARD PARK event. The third German starter, Dominik Gührs, injured himself in training on Saturday and was unable to compete on Sunday.

WAKEBOARD BEST TRICK

WAKEBOARD PARK FINAL

BMX Park

BMX Park

The extraordinary atmosphere at the BMX PARK drew not only some of the world’s best riders but also thousands of spectators to the Olympic Lake.

Held on a 700m² floating BMX course in the middle of the lake, the contest brought together twelve of the top riders in the world for a sick Saturday session. In the end it was Russia’s Irek Rizaev who won a thrilling superfinal just ahead of BMX legend Daniel Dhers (Venezuela) and Britain’s Jack Clark in third. Among those throwing down hard in front of the enthusiastic fans were also German riders Tobias Freigang (Wachtendonk) and Paul Thölen (Viersen), who both put on a strong showing despite missing out on a podium place this year.

Winner of the Best Trick Contest 2018 was Croatia’s Marin Rantes, who landed a 720 Tail Whip over the spine – a trick which only very few riders are able to pull.
