Emil's winning run was an aerial fireworks show. Watch it here
Emil Johansson hadn’t failed to win a slopestyle event since Crankworx Innsbruck in 2019. But after his first run in Innsbruck on Saturday, he sat in 13th place out of 15 riders, having had to abandon his first attempt when he lost his foot off his pedal as he was landing a jump.
Johansson had one run to keep the streak alive. He absolutely nailed it:
Needless to say, Johansson was stoked. Against a field that was just as hungry to compete as he was, Johansson absolutely delivered, scoring a 97.50 from the judges to beat Nicholi Rogatkin (95.50) and Torquato Testa (93.25).
After the event, he wrote on Instagram, “I’m speechless, four Crankworx wins in a row. What a day, first diamond event since pre-Covid and everyone was riding at their best! Keen to have the tour back on, I’ve missed this so much!”
