Straight after La Plagne' HalfPipe Worldcup finals, our two favorite Rossi riders Kevin Rolland and Xavier Bertoni flew to Laax. Yes sir! One the greatest freestyle event in Europe was on last week-end.
Laax' European Open is really fat, 5 days straight, top riders smash a superpipe and a slopestyle. 50.000$ Prize money, interesting.
After La Plagne quiet runs, Xavier Bertoni really rocked qualification' runs; 1st place, classy. Judges wanted Kevin Rolland to slide from classy to ashy; he ended 7th and did not go through semi-finals. Nothing went wrong it's just judges randomness.
Finals came up then and Xavier ended up 2nd. We though he would get the top stage after his second perfectly perfect run but still judges picked Matthew Phillipi' style.
