Another day of perfect conditions in Fuerte for the final day of the Freestyle world cup. Brazinho and Sara-Quita had already done enough to take victory before the day had even started, but the rest of the positions were still to play for.
In the womens Diada reveled in the wavey conditions, using the ramps to launch an aerial attack to take 2nd place overall. What Laure lacked in the air she made up for with some superb sliding moves. In the end it wasn\’t enough to challenge Diada, but gave her a solid 3rd position. Whilst not quite making the podium Yoli had her best result to date with a 4th place.
In the mens Gollito was in the top spot at the end of the 3rd Single elimination, and if he could stay there he would just take 2nd place from Ricardo. Ricardo however had a last chance to come through the double and take the 2nd place from Gollito. In the end however Kiri destroyed his hopes. It then came down to a Brazinho vs Gollito showdown. If Gollito could hold onto to first he would get the 2nd position. Brazinho already had the event won and perhaps that gave Gollito the edge. He took the last round victory and with it the 2nd place on the podium.
Tonight they also crown the Overall Womens World Freestyle title, which Sara-Quita wins by a mile with 3 straight wins at ever event. Diada takes 2nd in a much closer battle with Laure, who takes the final spot in 3rd.
