Brian Aragon crowned 2009 World Champion in Las Vegas.
World class riders gathered in Las Vegas on Halloween weekend and battled for the World Finals title, last stop of the WRS 2009 Pro Tour.
A lot of pessure was on Aragon at this final event in Vegas because two riders could have potentially taken his 1st place on the WRL: Chris Haffey and Julien Cudot.
After a brilliant season on the Pro Tour in which he qualified for the Pro Finals, amateur Julien Cudot didn’t manage to pass the first round. Chris Haffey, despite succeeding at qualifying for the final round, took a hard fall on a disaster true fish and had to retire from the competition.
Despite Wellsmore’s (2nd) impressive tricks, Broskow’s (3rd) creativity and style, Sizemore’s (4th) aggressive disasters and Stockwell’s (5th) fast lines, Brian Aragon did not loose his focus and took 1st place by landing stylish hammers and utilizing the whole course including every new obstacles built especially for the Las Vegas Finals.
He was then crowned 2009 World Champion (WRL#1) in front of the Vegas crowd, alongside Chris Haffey (WRL#2) and David Sizemore (WRL#3).
