Sometimes it’s nice to challenge the world’s best. They’re all getting used to nailing flip whips off giant Canadian dirt kickers and pulling cash rolls halfway through their runs – but could they do it on a course made entirely of snow?

That’s what White Style 2015 – held in Leogang, Austria – found out, and the answer, as you would probably expect, is pretty much still yes. These guys are near enough superhuman.

White Style is one awesome comp. It’s been running for nine years now, and this year it signalled the start of the 2015 FMB World Tour, which basically just means there’s plenty more radness to come in the not so distant future.

The likes of Brett Rheeder or Brandon Semenuk may not have been at this one, but Polish trick wizard Szymon Godziek was – and he took the gold medal home. Coming in behind him were a couple of Brits, Matt Jones and Daryl Brown, but the main reason you’re here probably isn’t for a run down the rankings.

You’re probably here to see some insane freestyle tricks from some insane riders on a pure white course of perfection. And we like to give you what you want to see:

Snow this year then, and who knows what else in five years time. If they all get good enough at it, we may as well force our pros to stick triple whips over active lava pools or at least over a few lion cages. Only a few of them would fall in anyway…
