Tom Fooshee (USA) was unstoppable this weekend!  It was for the fourth time that the US Wake Park rider finished on top of the podium 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 rider, Dominik Gührs could keep up with him, but had to tip his hat to Fooshee after a second run of 82.33 by the American. Dominik Gührs, Rocco van Straten, and Lior Sofer finish 2nd 3rd and 4th respectfully.

“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 – actually, it was his first contest on European soil. Everyone knew that Hansen taking the title wouldn’t be an easy task with Moritz Thiele riding against him, but Thiele had to be satisfied with 2nd place in the end as Hansen laid down several tech flip tricks. Last year’s winner Tarik Ghoniem finished in 3rd.

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.
