Henrik Harlaut wins 2012 Freestyle.ch big air
Thanks to his nosebutter double cork 1080 and nosebutter double cork 1260 (the first ever landed in competition), Henrik Harlaut secured the victory today at the Freestyle.ch big air in Zürich, Switzerland—this marks Henrik’s third Freestyle.ch title (’09, ’10). Kai Mahler made a strong bid for the top of the podium as he stomped a switch double misty 1260 on his final jump; alas, judges deemed Henrik’s stunts superior. Phil Casabon rounded out the podium, nudging Tom Wallisch into the fourth place spot.
Stay tuned for more information, plus video highlights from the final.
