The style of riding exhibited by most of the participants focused on combinations. The hot tip is to take old-style moves (boomerangs, tailwhips, decades, etc.) and link them to the new-wave rolling craze (whiplashes, death trucks, backpackers, etc.)
The pro routines were cut from three minutes to two.
Indianapolis, Indiana's Perry Mervar pulled his second pro flatland win in style. His run was fast and intense.
Perry Mervar: I started off with a Neanderthal, to double whiplash, to blender decade, to tailwhip, to hang ten, to locomotive, to cliffhanger, to perverted rolaid, to macaroni, to decade, to split-legged decade. Then I did a hitchiker, to flip over, to Gruttola decade. Then I did a hang-five, to double whiplash, to pinky squeaks. After that, I was supposed to do a Perry Doom, but they cut our time so I couldn't.
