Pages was simply riding on another level in the Bullring, and after his first quater final run that consisted of a special flip, volt, 540, 360 and more, I think everyone was like – ‘year he’s just won’! Wearing Eigo Sato’s Jersey, Pages dedicated his emotional win to the late Eigo Sago and was flying the Japanese flag for Eigo’s freinds and family with immense pride!

Spainard Danny Torres who was tipped as a sure favourate in the tight and technical Bullring dug deep into his bag of super tech flip tricks to try and put some pressure on Pages but it simply wasn’t enough on this occasion and Danny had to settle for second place.
