News Headlines – Mon 28th

The big news of the weekend – in fact, the same story every day since Friday – has been Kiri Thode repeatedly taking the spoils at PWA Mui Ne, Vietnam. After taking the first single from Gollito, he retained the first double on Saturday, went on to take the second single yesterday, and has just successfully defended the second double today pulling a one-handed culo with pirouette in an amazing final. Taty and Tonky Frans are consistently 3rd and 4th. See the elimination ladders here, more at
