What we’ve learntfrom FISE Chengdu

Having Chengdu withdrawal? Us too!
 
The FISE World Series came to a monumental finish that swept us off our feet. For those who missed it, or maybe just want to relive it, here’s a quick review of the action that went down at FISE
Chengdu.

Marin Rantes: BMX’s latest marvel

Young Croat, Marin Rantes – with another Top 5 finish in the Final and 26,700 points overall – managed to snag his first ever UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup.
Fans had been paying close attention to former champ Daniel Dhers and competition frontrunner Nick Bruce, but Rantes had some tricks up his sleeve…We’re already getting hyped to watch Marin defend his title next year!
 

Can nobody stop Hannah Roberts?

We’ve all gotten used to seeing this name at the top of the leader board.After winning the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup in 2017, nobody was getting in Hannah
Roberts’ way as she stormed to victory with 36,700 points overall.Still not out of her teens, we can expect Hannah to be a dominating force on the Women's BMX Freestyle scene for many years to come.
We can't wait to see if she continues to reign supreme!
 

It’s been a long time coming for Joe Atkinson…

A British invasion took the Roller scene by storm as Joe Atkinson became the first British athlete to take overall victory in the WS Roller Freestyle Park World Cup. His smooth style and consistency
proved to be the secret behind this success. With lots of other athletes hungry to take the title off him next year, 2019 is sure to be an explosive year in Roller!
 

Historic championship crowning in Women’s BMX Flatland

The inaugural Women’s UCI BMX Flatland World Cup winner was crowned after an amazing competition. Japan’s Misaki Katagiri scored a massive 40,000 points across the World Series stops
and debuted some insane displays. Misaki has been a force to be reckoned with all season, and no one was going to get in her way in Chengdu. Scoring a 77.66 in the finale, she brought the crowds to their feet!
 

All hail King Richard!

After watching him shred for several years at the FISE World Series, Richard Tury finally became Skateboard Street champion with tricks that had everyone – from skateboard purists to fresh-eyed
fans – purring. It was a close-fought race between him and the young gun from Japan, Ikeda Daisuke, but his absence in Chengdu allowed Richard to gain the advantage and blow the crowd away with another
podium-topping display!

Another exciting final on the flatland stage! The crowd were mesmerised by the creativity and style of the flatland final.  Jean William Prevost had a perfect run and he showed why he was last years champion, his control and execution were flawless and he was delighted to take home the win "I’m more than blessed to do this in my second home China" In second was Moto Sasaki he completed at least 5 really good long combinations and scored a well deserve 90.00 points. In third was familiar face on the podium Matthias Dandois who packed his run full of signature tricks.

The Women were not left behind, they enjoyed a rad final on the brand new permanent Park. The street type park, was brightened by the pure flow of Chihiro Azuma who landed everything like a precision machine. She took the gold today, followed by the Barcelona street skater Maria Munoz who enjoyed the setup which fitted perfectly with what she loves to ride. The French Rollerblading Princess Manon Derrien completed the podium, by dropping her tricks with her super classy style which is her signature. 

All the results

Today’s final was full of shocks and surprises. Yesterday’s top place semi-finalist Dennis Enarson put in a super slick run, with characteristic huge transfers to score a big 90.00 points. He was then over taken by an epic 2nd run from Jake Wallwork. Enarson couldn't land what he wanted in his second run so it was Jake who deservedly walked away with the win. It was a first ever win at FISE for Jake and he said “I can’t actually believe I won it”. Declan Brooks came in 3rd to complete the top 3.
