Once again at day three of the EFPT tow-in here at the Engadinwind, stunning scenery met incredible action. After an exciting qualification round yesterday, where every rider had six attempts to go bigger each time, the top six competitors were sent to the water today for the big tow-in final.
The finalists included some highly credited tow-in experts like Adam Sims (Sailloft/Patrik), Amado Vrieswijk (Severne/JP) and Tonky Frans (RRD/RRD), as well as the two local riders Jeremy Plüss and Balz Müller (Severne). German Duotone/Fanatic freestyler Marco Lufen completed the fleet of six.
The competition format allowed three runs for each finalist, with the best one counting. Scores were based on style and technical difficulty and the riders had the chance to use the wake of a boat, to add some extra height to their tricks.
