Watch: Slopestyle Qualification & Finals In Austria
The second FMB Gold Event of the 2019 season saw the world’s best Slopestyle athletes descend on the quaint Austrian town of Saalbach Hinterglemm, a tiny town that became the global capital of Slopestyle this weekend. Coming off of a win at Swatch Rocket Air earlier this season and an impressive 3rd place at Crankworx Innsbruck, Dawid Godziek travelled to GlemmRide with a chip on his shoulder, but also with realistic expectations.
Defending Champion Torquato Testa (ITA) and top-level Slopestyle riders such as Emil Johansson (SWE), Nicholi Rogatkin (USA), Erik Fedko (GER) and Tomas Lemoine (FRA) also travelled to Austria with a mission of their own – whether it was to defend the title or to score a win to bounce back on the season, but Dawid Godziek (POL) turned out to be the man to beat after laying down a heater of a run, scoring 92.33, and holding onto that score for the rest of the day, and making it two out of two FMB World Tour Gold Event wins this year.
