Don’t be fooled into thinking this is the same as your local stair set, the Skygate course is near vertical.
Bernardo got 12th and Stefano got 2nd during the draw.
Best Trick started at middle of the full track. All the riders needed to go pass the two curved track to adjust their status and then the straight down stairs to speed up before the first jump.
Most amazing part was the final jump. Riders could try their best tricks to the judging panel.
Nicholi Rogatkin gave high fives to the people.
And congratulations to Nicholi Rogatkin's 1st place of the best trick. 2nd came to Reed Boggs and 3rd belonged to Adlof Silva.
