Saturday is usually packed with action and the schedule incredibly busy here at FISE Montpellier. Not to forget the massive crowds gathered around every course, as 125.000 spectators joined the event yesterday! We managed to navigate through this madness, in order to bring you fresh coverage on all the latest action. So get on board, and catch up with what has undeniably become the largest action sports festival in the world, in the beating heart of Montpellier!
It’s still mind-boggling seeing our little, mostly underground activity of choice be a part of an event of such magnitude, and heart-warming to welcome such a supportive crowd around the Freestyle Park. Indeed, yesterday was time for the pro finals, and the 12 qualified riders didn’t disappoint! Starting his run with a 1260°, French powerhouse Jeremy Melique destroyed every obstacle in his path with big, technical tricks, and won an emotional and well-deserved first title: Congratulations!
But it wasn’t all, as the juniors and the first couple of heats for the AM contest qualifiers also took place on the park: Far from being done yet, if anything we’re only getting started and the schedule for this Sunday is absolutely insane! Veteran contest, juniors, women and amateur finals, not the forget the best trick event, rail contest and ESA street comp: But until we get into that, take a look at what happened yesterday and stay tuned for more tomorrow!
