The Burton High Fives news is coming in thick and fast today! Following a quick seven trick fix from Burton and news of the halfpipe results, here is the third piece of High Fives related content in the form of a full slopestyle highlights video. Watch some of the top contenders sending it over the course, as well hits from the podium worthy runs of Stale Sandbech, Seb Toots and Mikkel Bang.
Interestingly, and in contrast to Stale’s uber hucking, Mikkel had some super slow, super stylish tricks in his runs including his signature floaty front 3 indy and a ‘pokey’ no grab backside 180. Are the judge’s perhaps scoring amplitude, style and control higher than the number of rotations alone? Will 2012/2013 be the year of the slopestyle triple cork – Mark McMorris attempted one in this very contest, or will it be the year that style and originality in runs is properly acknowledged?
