The first racing of the day with almost 70 participants from nine nations startet at 11:00am. Four exciting races were watched by numerous spectators. The evaluation of the racing results is currently in full swing. Once the evaluation is complete, we hand in the results as soon as possible.
Parallel to the racers, the freestylers presented spectacular jumps to the spectators at lake Resia.
Artem Sarashchenko from Russia was the best of the freestylers and achieved the first place. The second-best performance was presented by the South Tyrolese Flavio Marx. Fabian Oberhofer, also from South Tyrol, followed in third place. Marx says he was very happy with the day. He was able to show all the tricks and jumps he wanted to show. The conditions were great, only the wind could have been a little bit stronger. Overall, it was a great day for him.

After the meal, the award ceremony of the long distance race and the freestyle competition takes place. The winners can not only look forward to a Worldcup victory, but also to the European Championship title.
