The choice was tough for the judges with nearly 30 video entries. In fact, with such abundant high level riding seen the decision was made that three riders will be joining the week-long session: the Italian trickster Torquato “Toto” Testa, Adolf Silva from Spain and Blake Samson from the UK. Additionally, the judges decided to invite some of the outstanding riders to join the Big Air Competition.
