The biggest attraction for audience was the 15 m long jump. Filip Polc flying through it.


Bernardo Cruz was one of the favorites for the race here in Bratislava. Nice whip for the audience.


Tomas Slavik had bad luck in training, he was too short on the landing and crashed there.


Destroyed his back rim and snapped ligaments in his ankle.


Check the crash on video:

It was a big BANG! We wish him quick recovery.
