The legendary inventor of the "Broich-Flip", Martin Broich, couldn't participate in the final. There was a highest air contest on the evening before the final. Both he and Diesy Knauder ranked first so that they had to compete against each other. Martin Broich gave more than his exhaustion would have allowed him. He slammed so hard that he was injured on his head.
The roller-skater group was quite big this year with 20 participants (there was also a Skateboarder contest). Apart from Martin Broich there was a second roller-skater who could not participate in the final because of injuries. René Hulgreen and Marcos Longares made it very hard for the judges to decide who should get the first place.
