All of the riders threw super impressive runs, but in the end it was reigning champion Brandon Semenuk who would take the top spot. Semenuk, whose run included a flip-whip on the Red Bull Freebird and a 360° whip, attacked the course with precision and focus, landing his winning run on in the first heat of finals.

Brandon was fending off the young up and comer Brett Rheeder, finishing second, and Martin Soderstrom, third, both of whom had runs that gave Semenuk a run for his money.
