Marcus Kleveland whirled hardest to take the first - and surely not the last - Air+Style win of his young career. Check the video highlights right here...

Second place went to Seb Toutant with Darcy Sharpe coming in third in what by all accounts was another hyper-spinning backside Mute-grabbing triple-fest. Sadly we were otherwise engaged at the time and missed the live stream, but by all accounts the finals was high on mindblowing rotations, yet low on diversity and innovation. Riders will always try to put down their biggest tricks to win the bling, so is a mandatory 'style' jump, or even a rethink of the entire straight jump format, necessary to breath a little more life into this venerable old beast?

And we're just confused. How can THIS have happened? (We're also gutted we missed the world's first Cab backside and frontside backside spins)
