So how about some video stimulus of the action from the Red Bull Linecatcher. 

While the results came in looking like:

1 Sean Pettit (CAN)
2 Markus Eder (ITA)
3 Tim Durtschi (USA)
4 Sage Cattabriga-Alosa (USA)
5 Chris Booth (AUS)
6 Léo Taillefer (FRA)
7 Wiley Miller (USA)
8 JP Auclair (CAN)
9 Richard Permin (FRA)
10 Mathieu Imbert (FRA)
11 Nicolas Vuignier (SUI)
12 Anthony Boronowski (CAN)
13 Chris Benchetler (USA)
14 Bene Mayr (GER)
15 Rory Bushfield (CAN)

It was clearly the Sean Pettit show, who made it look ridiculously easy as he improved on his second-place finish from 2010. The young rider from Whistler, BC, took home a well-earned victory. The biggest surprise of the day came from 20-year-old Italian Markus Eder. Who secured a place in the competition after making it through in Sunday’s Qualifying round, where he was one of three wildcard riders to earn a place in the Final. Eder would go on to take 2nd place in the Linecatcher. 3rd place went to Alaskan grown and now residing in Bend, Oregon rider Tim Durtschi. Durtschi who crashed on all three runs in 2010′s Red Bull Linecatcher, put down 3 solid runs enabling him to take the 3rd spot on the podium with a big smile on his face. “To come back and land all three runs this year felt really good,” Said Durtschi, “I’m really happy I made the podium, and every time I stepped it up a bit and made more of some of the bigger features. I couldn’t be happier now…” Congrats to all the riders for putting on one hell of a competition!

Another short vid.
