Reimer cruising through the corner.

Mt. Panorama, Bathurst: Kevin Reimer continued his dominance over the competition, making it three wins out of three at Newtons Nation. In a blistering final he passed Douglas Dalua Silva while coming out of the Dipper, and took on the notorious Forest Elbow with the barest of airbrakes, skimming the bales and rocketing down Conrod Straight with too much exit speed for the rest to catch.

Micah Green passed Dalua in the final straight to take second and cap an impressive weekend where he established himself as a new force on the world circuit. In third was Dalua, who despite having a tailor-made style for the high-speed course has never won here. In fourth was Adam Persson, who survived a disasterous first day qualifying run to qualify via the "Slowies" bracket and fight through a tough draw.

Maytum leading the pack.

Earlier, Marisa Nunez won the women's event with a flawless run, with Maga McWhinnie taking second while Tash Graham and Gemma Holland took heavy falls into the bales at Forest Elbow.

In the Juniors, Connor Ferguson confirmed his dominance over the weekend, while in the Street Luge, Queenslander Graham Brittain took out his first World Cup win. In Classic Luge, Cedric Robert beat out local favourite Adam Yates.

The event set an incredible precedent for the quality of the live streaming, allowing people all over the world to watch the action and see live results. This is the future of downhill skateboarding!
