The obstacles were a little better this year, with Girl, Flip, Creature and Black Label contributing their designs to the contest.

Leo and Brandon both shredded the Flip obstacles in style. As every other rider took their turns popping their best tricks over the giant pyramid, Leo was the only person to ignore the pyramid altogether to kill the other parts of the course. Yeah, Leo!
