Fans came out to show their support for Lasse ‘Sky’ Walker of the Netherlands who last year at the same event unfortunately suffered an epic crash in the last seconds of his heat. After performing a spectacularly huge mega loop, Lasse was slammed into the water and had to be removed by emergency personal.

Fully recovered for 2017 lasse won his first heat against Graham Howes and Williem Van De Meij, however would lose to Aaron Hadlow in the fifth round. Hadlow would go on to second overall.
