Men’s Single Elimination Final
A. Cozzolino / M. Monteiro
The tour leader and the tour number two meet again in the second final of the season so far!
Fast-paced action from the start in this heat. Both riders slamming in high scores and at the halfway point, Mitu is in the lead! A double front roll to revert puts him even further ahead but then Airton responds with a huge front roll to revert and an even bigger backroll tick tack and with three minutes to go, Airton is now in the lead.
Mitu then pulls ahead again with 90 seconds to go with a frontside shuvit 3 and a backroll tick tack into a front roll! This is Playstation stuff at this point!
With 30 seconds on the clock, Mitu is leading with an absolute enormous 42.13 combo score but, as the buzzer sounds, Airton plays his trick card and the 313 makes an appearance.
It looked like it would be too late, but it wasn’t. Airton wins the heat with a HUGE 43.61 combined score.
