BMX Park Podium

With a European schedule that can only be described as rammed, ExPix arrived at FISE on Sunday for the ‘Final’s Day’. The weather was scorching and the crowds were out. Montpellier never fails to deliver an all action event and the atmosphere is usually buzzing!

Up first for ExPix was the BMX Flat Pro and as, Alberto Moya, Alexandre Jumelin, Bo Wade, Dan Hennig, Dustyn Alt, Hernandez Varo, Jean Bukhon, JéRéMy Brosset, Kevin Jacob, Kevin Nikulski, Matthias Dandois and Thomas Noyer took to the floor, the crew knew that the early morning start had been worth it. What these guys can do on a bike is unbelievable.
Matthias Dandois was on fire but when it came down to the final call, Alex Jumelin took the podium spot.

Next up and it was the Wakeboard Pro Finals. 2013 winner Dominik Hernler gave an outstanding performance to claim another FISE title. With 2 runs on each course Dominiks' variation and style grabbed the judges' attention ahead of Aaron Gun who had a two really good runs on the rails. Bob Soven was unlucky just missing out to Aaron with a massive 360 on to the wall on his first run and some huge air of the kickers.

The last event of the day was the BMX Park Pro Final. With the crowds crammed into every available view point and space, it’s safe to say that this is what they’d come to see. FISE favourite Mark Webb was back in action but could only manage a 4th place although his run was cleverly put together to push the other riders. Daniel Sandoval however just didn't know when to stop, huge air and tweaking every trick to the limit he took the first place.
