The premiere of the TSG King Of The Air in Flims in the evening of June 23rd, 2012 was a complete success. At sunset the MTB and BMX dirt riders jumped into the night on the 12m respectively 15m large Big Air kickers.
The biggest highlight was brought by the 16 year old US American Nicholi Rogatkin with his Quadwhip, a world first on a dirt landing. This guarantied him the win in the BMX discipline in front of Patrick Guimez with a sweet Flipwhip. Daniel Tünte whipped himself on the third place with a Triplewhip.
In MTB we saw a tight decision between Bienvenido Albas Frontflip and Xavier Pasamontes Flipwhip, both over the 15m gap. At the end Bienve came out on top with his Frontflip. The Belgian Thomas Genon ended up third with a Double Tailwhip.
Followed by a 30 minutes jam session jury and public additionally crowned Best Trick, Best Style and Fans Favorite. The German Simon Moratz (BMX) took home the Best Trick title with a 360 Backflip.
Best Style won Desmond Tessemaker (BMX) with some unbelievable Supermans. This was a really tight decision, as TSG rider Thomas Genon (MTB) scored heavily with a beautiful 360 Flatspin.
