# Apparently, you had the best overview from the Red Bull container.
# The weather is great and the mood looks as if a lot of people are having a lot of fun here.
# Erik Fedko looks at it first…
# … and then whipped not only across, but also spectacularly overhead.
# Phil Krause goes for style – and white shoes.
# Small height comparison.
# The women were also at the start: Roos Op de Beeck jumped!
# … and Abby Hogie follows suit.
# Despite the entrance fee and the cool weather, thousands of people found their way to the slopestyle area.
# Next door and not in use: the legendary bobsleigh run, where a few years ago a soap slide took place – that would only have been possible this year for the very hard-boiled.
# Fly overhead… – Erik Fedko exaggerated as always!
# Noah Koeckerling was in the running for quite a long time.
# If you look closely, you can see a flying bike shadow.
# Even the initial jump was used by some riders to lay crosses in style. – Seen here: Gabriel Wibmer.
# The whip jump was all in white. – Justus Rudolph.
# Steep slopes require sturdy shoes! – and tight laces.
# The unofficial side event “Riddle Fences” was efficiently prevented by the stewards this year – at least until the end of the contest.
# Lukas Schäfer created a good atmosphere.
# Woohoo, Clemens Löbbert!
# Noah Koeckerling in the sunshine.
# Luckily it got off lightly.
# … and lands the safe of the year
# In a process that was not always very clear, one eventually got to the finals, in which the vote was then applauded.
# The wind blew through the park throughout the day, but the whip-off jump was safe so far.
# Roos Op de Beeck (right) wins the women’s Whip Off competition.
# And Harry Schofield fully deserves with the men!
# And Clemens Loebbert hits another one too.
# Alleged life hack of some visitors: Wear the same vests as the security guards.
# As always, there was no holding back after that – Nevertheless, one can state: It was far more relaxed overall than in some previous years!
# The pump track and urban DH specialists Adrien Loron and Thomas Slavik also watched the event.
