Jib King 12/2018

For the first time since its debut, the Jib King was held this season at Absolut Park in December, thanks to an early season start. Also new were the Pro and Masters Divisions, a prize money of EUR 10,000 for the pros and EUR 5,000 as Blue Tomato vouchers. Almost 50 amateurs and 30 pros showed their tricks in Jib Park and on the brand new Stairset.

The new Jib Park, which was built almost overnight after the intensive snowfalls, was in perfect condition for the amateurs, rookies, and kids on Saturday.

In an extremely tight competition, Noah Gasperi won the men's competition and Urska Pribosic the women's competition.

The rookies, who were in no way inferior to the men, were dominated by Niklas Huber. The kids up to 12 years showed off their skills in the Jib Park and Aljaz Sladic took first place.

On Sunday the pros were allowed to prove their skills on the new Stairset. In an incredible qualification with 270s in all directions, backside 360s on and boardslides through the Double Kink, the best eight secured a spot in the final.

All riders showed an incredible level in the final and pushed until the last seconds of the 45-minute jam session. Halfway through the session, three riders dominated the field: Ethan Morgan, who always ran up to the jib kicker to have enough speed for his Hardway gaps, secured 3rd place with tricks like Switch Bs Hardway 270 gap at the Doublekink and Back Tail 450 out at the Downrail. Also, the Best Trick went to Ethan with a Bs Hardway 270 - 270 out at the Waterfall Rail.

Absolut Park team rider Max Zebe came second with a good portion of style and tricks like a Cab Hardway 270 at the Ledge, a Gap Fs Hardway 270 at the Doublekink and a Switch Backlip at the Waterfall Rail. However, it was Kevin Trammer from Belgium who did one trick after the other, put it cleanly into the landing and left the others no chance.

With over 10 tricks landed, among them a Bs 180 to Switch Nosepress Cab 180 Out at the Waterfall, Blunt 270 into 50/50 - Bs 360 Out at the Downrail and Frontboard to Switch Nosepress at the Waterfall, it was clear that Kevin Trammer would end up 1st.

The women's final that Henry Jackson described as one of the best he had ever seen was at least as exciting. Urska Pribosic won the third place with tricks like a Bs Lipslide on the Downrail and front 180 50/50 Cab 180 on the Downrail. Nobody knew who would take first and second place, because the two ladies landed their tricks one after the other. In the end, Kaili Randmae won with a 50/50 Bs 360 Out on the Downrail and a Noseslide through the Doublekink ahead of Rachida Aoulad with a Gap Front Lip on the Doublekink and a Switch Frontboard on the Downrail. The Best Trick Award in the women's category also went to the Morgan family; Annika Morgan took it with a textbook switch Boardslide 270 Out at the Waterfall Rail.

Freeski recap

The first place and the qualification for the AM Division were won by Armin Baumann for the men and Stefanie Mössler for the women in an extremely tight competition.

In the rookies' category, Luis Resch won against his rivals.

Also, the kids up to 12 years showed their skills in the Jib Park and Urban Stavonik won the lead.

On Sunday, the pros were invited to show what is possible on the new Stairset. In an extremely strong qualification, the best eight got a place in the final.

In the final, it was a Tom Ritsch show from the beginning.

His first hit, a Lip 450 on the Ledge, made the crowd freak out. Even Voita Bresky with his 270 Frontside Switch Up 450 out and Lukas Müller with his 270 Pretzel 450 could not take the 1st place away from him.

Simon Griessemann secured the best trick with a risky 180 to Switch 50-50 on the downrail.

The women also hit the Stairset hard; with her 270 on 270 off Anastasia Tatalina only finished 3rd. Lana Prusakova scored second with a Switch Tail 270 out but secured Best Trick. In the end, Giorgia Bertoncini with Backslide to Fakie at the Waterfall and Blindside Switchup at the Doublekink came to the deserved 1st place.
