Ross-Dillan Player.

They were kiting in 40-50 knots. Fun to watch.

Best moment for me was Liam Whaley borrowing a duotone in the semi-final and smashing it out the park.

I'm confused about how the megaloop challenge compares to the King of the Air, in terms of scoring rules and also relative prestige. Can someone please clarify for me?

Same same (but each jump has to have a mega-loop in it to score which is what they tend to do in Cape Town anyway), then repackaged in Holland and equally badly filmed.

Yup, the filming was dreadful....missed more than half of what went on during the heats. What, Red Bull can only afford one camera? Geeze....That said, conditions were pretty wild and there was some insane moves out there, when I could actually see them :(

Thanks for the clarity. I have to agree the filming was terrible ... The amount of times the commentator would go "omg that jump was insane" only to have the camera watching a competitor simply motoring upwind was ridiculous!!
