"Boyd Hilder from Australia took the win with a full pull of a run executing all of his signature high speed maneuvers in a perfect manner. His second run was the one to solidify his top spot position. The competition was intense up until the very last minute, as the top qualifier Felix Prangenberg from Germany had an unfortunate crash on his first run and was the last rider on the lineup - it all came down to his second run and it was the perfect comeback earning him the second place overall. Hilder and Prangenberg were closely followed by Courage Adams (Spain) with an intense combination of power and balance in his trick list," says Toms Silins from Latvia who was one of the three judges for BMX Street in SS22 alongside David “Hank” Cleworth (GBR) and Markus Wilke (GER).
