Quote from Ryan Clements, Spotlight PROductions and co-arranger of CPH Pro:
“Let me tell you… what a contest! The entire time was pure excitement. The Danes love their vert and it was seriously just the best environment for a vert contest that I’ve even been to. The decks and balconies surrounding the ramp were packed with people screaming for literally everything and anything. The pros were hyped and pushing boundaries with every run they took. It was seriously amazing… just off the charts.”
