The 2019 freestyle championship season just ended with the last event in Brazil with 17 year old teen Colombian rider on top and F-One Liam Whaley 3rd overall. Maxime Chabloz ended 4th and Nicolas Delmas 8th. Liam and Maxime had a great shot at winning the title and we are sure they will come back stronger next year

Liam had his best heat in the quarter: “Liam Whaley had put together one of the best heats we’ve ever seen in freestyle competition in his quarter final, literally not putting a foot wrong. Having one of those sessions where everything looked pre-programmed and effortless, he scored two tens; firstly for a heart attack 7 and then sent his fans delirious with a stunning back mobe 7. Impeccable take-off, control and the sweetest of landings. His was the highest heat score of the day (and in recent memory), 37.53.”
