20,000 enthusiastic spectators witnessed absolute enthralling finals of Red Bull Berg Line 2013 until the very end.
With the final run of the day, the Canadian Brett Rheeder decided the first FMB World Tour Gold Event of this season in bright sunshine for himself.
Sam Pilgrim (GBR) ended up in second place followed by the young Swede Anton Thelander.

All eyes were on the starting tower, when Brett Rheeder prepared for the last run of the day. Thus only the Canadian could grab the victory from Sam Pilgrim (GBR) who was leading at that stage. And the 20-year-old kept cool: With fantastic trick combinations like flipwhips and opposite flipwhips over the big kickers, he vowed the crowds at the iXS Dirt Masters-Festical in Winterberg and outplayed Sam Pilgrim for a narrow but deserved win at Red Bull Berg Line: “Yeah! This is my first win at a Gold Event of the FMB World Tour. I knew I had to give everything to beat Sam’s run and I’m glad I made it. ”

For Anton, who made it to Red Bull Berg Line through a wildcard at Vienna Air King, this is the biggest success of his career.
