Die Freeski Jib Kings und die Jib Queen auf dem Podium beim Jib King 2018.

Freeski

On the first day of the contest, it was the freeskiers’ turn: Tim van Dyck, Nico Huber, and Loris Rudiger secured the Jib King titles, Katrien Aerts was voted Jib Queen.

Bright sunshine and springlike temperatures were welcoming the 48 freeskiers on the first day of the contest in the perfectly shaped Jib Park. Twelve obstacles offered the participants different possibilities to vary their runs and show individual trick combos. In addition to the versatility of the tricks and spins, the team headed by Head-Judge Josh Absenger paid particular attention to progression, style and a clean execution of the tricks.

All participants had two runs to convince the judges — for the women, the kids and the rookies, the better one counted for the final result, while the men fought for a place in the final on the stair set. The first five places in all categories were rewarded with high-quality non-cash prizes. 

THE FREESKI RESULTS

The contest started with the qualification of the men: The trick level was constantly high, and the boys dismantled the Jib Park between Frauenalm and Chill House until the best eight qualified for the final at the stairset. Here each finalist had four attempts, but two different tricks had to be shown. In the end, Tim van Dyck won with a 270 switch up 270 out and a super K-Fet — both on the down rail — followed by Maj Stirn in second place. He showed a switch 270 to switch on the double kink rail and a one-foot change one-foot leftside 360 out on the ledge. Third place went to Fabian Mühringer with a 450 to switch and a 180 to switch 50-50 transfer, both on the double kink rail.

In the women's event, Katrien Aerts impressed the judges with a 360 mute on the jib kicker, a railslide on the down rail and a waterfall rail to switch. Victoria Ressel won silver with a boxslide to fakie and a rightside 180. Bronze went to Greta Staudacher, who showed a boxslide and a leftside 180. 

Nico Huber won in the rookie category with a cork 5 Japan on the jib kicker, a switch railslide Pretzel 270 and a railslide opposite 270, second place was taken by Klemen Vidmar with a switch 540 Shifty on the kicker, a railslide 270 out on the down rail and a railslide Pretzel 450 out. Third place went to Peter Vidmar with a super clean flat 3 on the kicker, a railslide 270 out, a 360 tap on the truck wheel and a lipslide on the waterfall rail. 

The youngest participant of the contest, 11-year-old Loris Rudiger, won the kid’s competition. He showed a 360 safety grab on the jib kicker, a nice railslide and a transfer on the kinked rail. Robert Rettensteiner followed in second place with a super clean backflip, a slide to fakie and a transfer to switch on the kinked rail.

Snowboard

On Epiphany, 45 snowboarders met for the Jib King at Absolut Park Flachauwinkl. Florian Pötzl, Motiejus Morauskas and Aljaz Sladic prevailed in the Jib Battle and were crowned Jib Kings and Georgia Nicholls Austin became Jib Queen. 

On the second day of the contest, which was reserved for snowboarders, the Jib-Park was in top shape again, and there was a perfect bluebird in the sky. The twelve obstacles offered the 45 snowboarders plenty of options for different and creative runs. Style, clean execution and the variation of tricks and spins were crucial to the team around head-judge Andy Lehmann. 

All participants had two runs to convince the judges — for the women, the kids and the rookies, the better one counted for the final result, while the men fought for a place in the final on the stair set. The first five places in all categories were rewarded with high-quality non-cash prizes.
