Very impressive competition and incredible level. Principi is really a complete rider even if he does not have the handle pass. But he is going high and always land clean. And he also has a good strategy.
The heat between Giel Vlugt and Luca Ceruti was great.
There really is a change in the rider hierarchy with the young ones taking the lead.

I agree it's the changing of the guard now. Which is awesome the youth is the future of the sport. Princpi,Casati and burlando etc all around 18
Makes me wonder if Nick or Marc will be out of a job nxt yr. Haven't seen nowhere near the amount of clips of him lately as I used to
I think Jesse seen the future groms coming up. And was over being injured.
Liam used to be the young gun
