Extreme Weekend Roundup

This Monday the Extreme Weekend Roundup is all about world firsts! Yuki Kadono landed one at Air + Style, on the event's first trip to the USA, and skiers were also invited to hit the famous kicker for the first time.

We enjoyed the first event on the City Downhill World Tour 2015 as they geared up for their first full, five-stop championship and Extreme.com also streamed the SFR Freestyle Tour for the first time.

Scott Croxall was the exception to the rule this weekend, winning his second-straight Crashed Ice event, but we'll let him off. Enjoy the highlights!

Yuki Kadono stole the show on an historic night as Air + Style touched down in LA for the first time ever this weekend.

The Japanese rider landed a never-before-seen Switch Backside Triple Cork 1620 to top the podium ahead of Seb Toutant and Stale Sandbech.

But the result was enough for Sandbech to ensure he finished top of the overall standings and became the first ever Air + Style World Tour Champion.

Scott Croxall, on an improbable hot streak with three straight victories on the ice - now including two at Red Bull Crashed Ice - after waiting six long years for his first win, had the luck of the Irish behind him on Saturday.

He was unstoppable in all five of his races down the spectacular 430-meter long track and sent the Northern Ireland crowd into a frenzy with his scintillating performance in the finals of the world’s fastest sport on skates.

It was an all-Canada sweep with Dylan Moriarity taking second place and his twin brother Dean taking third. Austria's Luca Dallago took fourth in an action-packed final.
