This year Munich Mash had a Miniramp contest. With 12 invited riders riding the contest in front of a big crowd, it wasn't short of action.

With 2 out of 3 runs counting towards a final score, Argentinean Jose Torres, Daniel Dhers, Kostya Andreev and Pat Casey made it to the final which was started straight after qualifying. Again the two best scores out of the three runs would count in the final and with the crowd behind the riders they cut loose.

Daniel Dhers found himself on the podium once again. Daniel is so solid in his riding and does so many tricks, knows when he needs to step it up, and
