The penultimate day of the Freestyle contest in Fuerteventura saw more explosive action as the men’s double elimination was completed, while the second single elimination of the women’s was also finished. Fanatic´s Gollito Estredo makes a winning start to the year with another incredibly stylish display! Gollito impessed the judges with some brand new moves and had to face Amado Vrieswijk in the final. The two of them produced a scintillating show, but despite his best efforts, the Bonairean couldn’t deny the Venezuelan the opening victory of the season as the 7-time freestyle world champion makes the perfect start to his title defence. Both landed some massive moves with backloops, pushloops, air chachoos being thrown down as well as some crazy combos, but crucially Gollito exited his maneuvers cleanly, while Vrieswijk was left counting a wet air kabikuchi, while he couldn’t quite land his double air culo. So, it is advantage Gollito in the race for either 9 world titles or 1 world title. Well done Gollito – you were rocking the show! Also congrats to Adrien Bosson in 6th and Arrianne Auckes in 4th!
Today the Slalom contest is starting Good Luck Pierre Mortefon, Jordy Vonk and Marco Lang!
