The Mexican duo would go from less to more during the fight for the Pan American Gold, since despite adding 51 points after their first jump, they would remain below the Canadian team made up of Rylan Wiens and Nathan Zsombor-Murray, who obtained 54, placing themselves at the top after the first round.
Already in the second round, the surprise would come from the Americans Max Flory and Jordan Rzepka, placing themselves in first place, followed by the Mexicans.
The 3 1/2 laps shown in the middle of the competition would take Berlin and Willars to the top of the classification, however, the pleasure would be short-lived for the Mexican duo, since in the fourth round they would fall again to the second position, while the last one would start from the third rank.
