Despite the adverse weather conditions and many difficulties for the organization crew, the original race set up race was downsized but the structures allowed anyway the riders to give their best to compete.
The set up of the race was reduced to: first jump 11m, 8m Stairset with Rail, Tube (dsd) 12m. The race format has also slightly evolved , in agreement with the riders the third run was not held because a dense fog compromised the visibility in park.

Alberto Maffei and Sebastian Springeth follow on second and third place . The best trick award was instead won by David Liberatore with the cab 270 boardslide IN on stairs.
