Trick: Backside 1260 mute
After half a decade of near misses, Peetu Piiroinen suddenly couldn't stop winning. His score bested the new "always the bridesmaid" Seppe Smits' by a mere point. The rest of the tricks thrown by other riders on the leaderboard were telling: no spin under 1080, and Nils Arvidson threw a frontside 1440 in there for good measure.
