June 19, 2021 – Today etnies’ rider Emil Johansson put together his dream run at Crankworx Innsbruck to win another gold! According to the contest organizer, “Emil brought his all to the 2021 Crankworx Innsbruck Slopestyle event. Think big air and even bigger tricks!” etnies Bike Team Manager John Povah said, “He literally tricked every jump flawlessly! Emil pulled together what he considered his ‘dream run’, scoring an amazing 97.50 to win Slopestyle at Crankworx Innsbruck 2021.”
THE STORY BEHIND THE FINAL RUN VIDEO
With rain delays and a bobbled first run leaving him in 13th place, the pressure was on Emil going into the final runs. In typical Emil style, he mixed insanely technical regular and opposite moves like double downside tail-whips, a 360-windshield wiper, and closed out the run with an insane opposite truck to downside tail-whip.
