Paul Basagoitia (Kona Clump) took top honors at round three of the Qashqai Urban Challenge in Madrid, Spain, a street competition last weekend, and retained his overall lead in the series.
In the final runs, the top 12 riders were attempting new lines. Basagoitia chose the left-side line, which contained two small jumps into staircase landings. He 360'ed the first jump and tailwhipped the second. He followed those two jumps with a no-foot can over the box, walltap, and wallride into a stretched out superman on the box jump. Next, he did a no-foot can transfer from concrete block at the top of the stairs down to another staircase landing before ending with a flip up the step-up, 360 on the step-down, and a backflip table on the last jump.
From the first to the second round, riders stepped up their level, so Basagoitia thew in a tailwhip on the stair section gap. The bike made it around, but Paul did not land perfectly into the staircase and crashed on the concrete.
Round 4 continues May 25-26 in Cologne, Germany with a park style competition.
