Day 1 one of the event was dedicated to getting to know the skatepark and the best trick contest on three different obstacles. Riso Tury, Jost Arens and Farid Ulrich walked away with the cash at the end of the day.

Day 2 was more serious and the team work was the most crucial. All three riders in each of the teams had to be at their best through the rounds and then in the knock out stages to get to the final. German 'Titus' consisting of Farid Ulrich, Jost Arens and Yannick Schall was the most consistent team even despite the loss of one their riders. Team manager Yannick Schall had to step in and helped them get through to the final and eventually win the trophy.
