Congrats to Bene Mayr for his 2nd place at the Sweet Rumbl in Trysil, Norway last weekend.
After knocking out Markus Eder and Klaus Finne with his slow and stellar looking double cork 10, Bene met Brown in the finals, which was a three-run format where 3 different jumps had to be thrown. Bene, who was going huge all night, attempted to push the envelope even further but failed to stomp his tricks, leaving the door open for Brown, who sailed to victory with another flawless double cork 12.

Here is a little recap of the event and Bene’s performance:
The organizers had announced one of the biggest city jump ever done with a 19m deck. All the riders were excited about this idea but the jump wasn’t tested before so the first try of TJ Schiller was a bit scary (he landed hard on the deck, 2m before the landing). And after 10 riders, the organizers decided to postponed the quali and re-shape the whole jump.
After a long break, the 17m deck jump was open for practice and everything worked well. The qualification format was really simple, as they had to change the schedule, 2 runs best one count! Only 8 riders, among them Bene Mayr, were qualified for the head to head final with the pre-qualified riders (Sammy Carlson, Simon Dumont, Paul Bergeron, Bobby Brown, Jon Olsson, Kevin Rolland, Andreas Håtveit and Jacob Wester).
For the final, the shaper had made the kicker better and the in run was longer so everyone was stocked on the jump after the first trainings. The audience was big for this final day. The final field was one of the most impressive one with the top 3 of the last X Games Big Air. The weather wasn’t the easiest to handle (rain and wind) but still good enough for the riders to ensure the show!
