Meyer earned the win with a total of 75 points to easily better American second place finisher Cassidy Scheer's 66 with Shane Jordan of New Zealand taking the third step of podium on 63 points.

Meyer finished first in the Underhand Chop, Stock Saw, Standing Block Chop, and Springboard events while finishing second in the Single Buck and fourth in Hot Saw after having a problem with his high powered chainsaw.

The highest placed European finisher at the Industrial Palace was Swiss Christophe Geissler in fifth place.
