Contesting – Telekom Extreme Playgrounds
Tom Fooshee (USA) was unstoppable this weekend! It was for the fourth (!) time that the US boy made it at #1 at the Telekom Extreme Playgrounds. His competitors Rocco van Straten (NL) and Lior Sofer (ISR) were left behind right after his first run. Only German sunny boy Dominik Gührs could keep up with him, but had to tip his hat to Fooshee after the second run (82.33) of the American. So it was second for Dominik and third for Rocco van Straten. No luck had the freshly appointed WWA #1, Fredy von Osten (GER) who was already after the second run forced to the bench.
“Best wakeskater of all time” – that´s the title for Reed Hansen! Nobody beats this guy at the moment. It was his first appearance at the Telekom Playgrounds – even his first contest on European soil and he made it very clear that title belongs the US of A. Moritz Thiele was close, but had to be satisfied with #2 at the end. Last year’s winner Tarik Ghoniem made it to #3.
The BMX final was nothing but spectacular! UK top rider Mark Webb showed once again, that there´s no one better at the miniramp right now. Right with his first run he reached 95.00 points, left everybody else behind and took his title home for the third time in a row. The surprise of the weekend was Daniel Tünte (GER). The youngster was winner of the Telekom Local Support Miniramp Challenge which brought him in company of the pro´s. He showed absolutely no fear for big names and was rewarded with the second place, leaving even Italian pro Alessandro Barbero behind.
