Notes The 20th Competition, official name: 新SASUKE2008春 第20回記念大会 (literally Shin-Sasuke 2008 Spring 20th Anniversary Tournament), is the third tournament since Nagano Makoto's win in SASUKE 17, and the 20th Competition since the first SASUKE held back in 1997. Preliminary trials were held before this tournament. The Sasuke 20 Trials had four representatives and the United States had three. To celebrate this historic tournament, the numbering system went from #1901-#2000, similar to SASUKE 10. Despite the course being almost identical to SASUKE 19 (with a few minor changes), only 3 out of 100 people managed to beat the First Stage, the second worst in SASUKE history. Many people failed the Half-Pipe Attack. In the Second Stage, the results were mixed. Okuyama Yoshiyuki failed the Stick Slider when his pipe got disconnected from the tracks. Levi Meeuwenberg cleared with an amazing 38.5 seconds left, a SASUKE record. The second man to achieve kanzenseiha, Nagano Makoto shocked many when he failed the Downhill Jump. The last person standing, Levi Meeuwenberg, failed at the Shin-Cliffhanger.
