Thiago Gomes Lessa of Brazil qualified fastest at the Red Bull Yuping Longboard Open today, closely followed by fellow Brazilians Max Ballesteros and Tiago Mohr in a scenario that is becoming routine in 2016, as the travelling Brazilians stamp their dominance on the early stages of the World Tour.

Jenny Shauerte of Germany was the fastest woman, while Robert Burns of Hong Kong was the fastest junior. In Masters, Adam Yates of Australia topped the list; a fitting result for the man who has been so instrumental in putting this race on the world map.

Yuping Repechage

Can anybody stop the rampaging Brazilians here? Max Vickers of the US came closest today, narrowly ahead of the young Australians Roy Churchland and Harry Clarke. Just behind them lies the wily old dawg, Adam Yates, while in tenth place lies the fastest local, Qing Yunhui.

OK, caption contest?
