Thanks everybody for the votes! Especially to Ondo for making these battles possible. They gave me the motivation to land new tricks on film and learn new stuff. I hope i can go to a real competition next year to hang out with you guys!

Luke- Smooth as ever, still stoked on the X-hand Hang 5's you got them so good it looks like you could Whiplash X-handed also!


Misterpola- Amazing amount of dope tricks and lot's of energy! The Hop Whip was an exclamation point after nailing that combo, awesome. Stoked on the switch Pedal 5 switch to Steam also.


I'm going with Misterpola for the win here.

Congrats to the finalists, not an easy task to make it this far competing against a gang of shredders.

Molo- Real psyched on the X-Foot Nose Wheelie to Steam to Hang 10 combo. The Nose Wheelie standing on the rear tire is cool. Stoked to see new stuff, keep it coming!

Ronny- Damn! The full commitment to each switch is gnarly, so aggressive, I think anyone would hate to have battle you! The Fire Hydrant to Double Boomerang without letting the tire tap the ground is clean. A lot of impressive moves.

My vote goes to Ronny for the win.

This is a really tough battle to call.

Ronny did do a lot of really difficult switches, but I didn't see a whole lot in the battle that was altogether original that stood out to me. It also felt like he really lacked a lot of variety in his riding. Granted, Molo didn't do as much spinning as Ronny did, but Ronny didn't really work the rear wheel nearly as much as Molo did.

I think if this were a straight up or down vote on difficulty Ronny would be ahead by a very slim margin, but I think with all the stuff Molo did on the rear wheel as well as his more original lines I feel like he deserves the win here.

Vote goes to molo.

Ronny Engelmann @ Kassel gets my vote.

While Molo's stuff was more original and just something different from most of the stuff you see around, Ronny's links were more difficult. I also appreciate much more variety in terms of number of tricks although he did very little backwheel ones. Last but not least, I liked the execution of his switches. He didn't let the backwheel drop during let's say those double boomerangs while he could have done that to get more balance.

Anyways, lots of respect to both guys! Congrats!

My vote goes to Ronny Engelmann @ Kassel

Both runs were excellent. Molo had more originality and more backwheel and had some really surprising stuff but as a whole Ronny topped it with difficulty imo and showed a lot of his impressive tricktionary so he takes this victory.

Congrats to both! Respect!

This is yet another extremely closer than close battle.
I Felt, Molo lacked some of Ronny's flow and execution, but when you look and compare what Molo also brought to the table as far as Ideas and hints of originality in particular the foot positioning, then it leaves me tending to go with Molo!
So Molo gets my vote on this one.
Icare to say, If I was this was some offline contest, then Ronny would be the accomplished spinny crowd pleasing choice.  Like I say it's that close overall!

Molo.
