Well
My vote goes to Rodrigo Huck

although Steve did alot of very difficult tricks/links (nohand hitchhiker, different stuff to cliffhanger for example) he repeated to many single tricks in multiple combos, that makes less of a variety in trickrepertoire (cool 360 btw, man!)

 on the other hand rodrigo did alot of different tricks and repeated almost nothing in his combos (except for a crackpacker, to get into another more difficult variation and whiplash at the beginning of a combo, but not in terms of full combo-making single tricks like a halfpacker, karlcruiser etc.), also multiple whiplashes, a sick pivot aswell as a idontevenknowthename-wheelchair variation, very good!

and even though rodrigo used slightly less of his time, i still feel that he goes out with a plus!very well done, both of you! next time you can battle in expert class!

(wtf, my post gets written all fat and changes the format? sucks, seems almost like writing in caps... please note that this is not intended, haha)

Steve showed a nice variety of difficult tricks and a nice and fast backwheel combo.
Rodri did some of the hardest combos i've seen in intermediate class, but i'd have liked to see more backwheel from him.
I'm going with Rodrigo for the win here.

I was never told voting was active, so maybe the organizer should keep the judges better informed?

I'm going with Steve on this one. His combos had a lot more substance than Rodri's even though Rodri did do a few difficult things himself. I just think Steves were on the whole more difficult.

I'm not sure why some of you are saying that Steve should be marked down for repeating things with Rod repeated just as many tricks without building on variations than Steve did, but that's your opinion so whatever.

Sorry for the hold up..

My vote goes out to Rodrigo Huck.

Awesome riding by both, good variations, difficult tricks, really good level. Steve had good control & Rodrigo had difficulty, that is the little edge I give to Rodrigo.

Thanks!
