Best of Red Bull Berg Line 2013

All eyes were on the starting tower, when Brett Rheeder prepared for the last run of the day. Thus only the Canadian could grab the victory from Sam Pilgrim (GBR) who was leading at that stage. And the 20-year-old kept cool: With fantastic trick combinations like flipwhips and opposite flipwhips over the big kickers, he wowed the crowds at the iXS Dirt Masters-Festival in Winterberg and outplayed Sam Pilgrim for a narrow but deserved win at Red Bull Berg Line: “Yeah! This is my first win at a Gold Event of the FMB World Tour. I knew I had to give everything to beat Sam’s run and I’m glad I made it. ”

The competition was stiff, but Brett Rheeder battled to the end for the win at Berg Line.

For Sam Pilgrim, the leader of the FMB World Tour ranking, remained only second place despite a huge backflip from the starting drop or a flip no-hander over the first kicker. Third place was secured by 18-year old Swede Anton Thelander, who thrilled the crowd with an impressive flatspin over the big kicker. For Anton, who made it to Red Bull Berg Line through a wildcard at Vienna Air King, this is the biggest success of his career.
