Wängl Tängl Day Two: Qualifying
The day started out with good weather, although the wind picked up and blew some clouds trough the valley the qualifying went down as planned. Winners of the day were Innsbrooklyn Locals “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.” Peter Sandner, Florian Trattner & Stephan Wimmer who took their 3 tickets to Tängl and cashed them in for the overall best team performance of the day. Their cleanest run included backside 720’s, clean and stylish frontside 360’s and overall coordination in the way they rode through the course.
Coming in second are clever linguists and best team name this year the “Cunning Stunts” Paul Dreher, Patrick Held & Philipp Frötscher, followed by the SPN – Crew who made it to 3rd place. The final team to join the invited Pro’s in the Tängl Team Contest will be Switzerland’s Natural Born Chillaz.
Although they ended up on the 8th place in the quali the team manager’s team (You are Fired!) consisting of Sani Alibabic, Gary Greenshields & Jon Weaver proved, despite their age and profession, that they are still more than capable of riding at this level. Getting more than just Instagram likes, with a frontside 720 from Gary over the big kicker and Sani showing his pipe skills in the Red Bull End Section, with a Crippler, they were the Standouts of the day.
Ranging in age from 10-16, “The Boarder Boys” Tobi Grünwald, Daniel Kopp & Max Grünwald were the youngest team of the day. They didn’t qualify, but they still turned heads with their style.
After a hard day of riding the riders celebrated at the Red Bull Brandwagon Street Concert with Wax Wreckaz and Disco Dogs Live.
