Canadian Kenny Smith went down hard and put himself out for the rest of the day. No possiblity of a second run spoiled Kenny's chance of a shot at Sundays final.
One of the 4 World Cup DH riders here, Mick put down two solid runs with his trademark speed and aggressive style but failed to push it enough to qualify.
A creative line was all important and Casey Groves made it count. An uphill pedal in the middle of his run wasn't enough to get in the way today and he just made it through to Sunday.
Coastal Crew pinner Kyle Norbraten looked solid and in control the entire way through his run, and his fellow Coastal crewers were more stoked than anyone else on the hill.
Crashes were big news today, with plenty of riders going down hard. Anthony Messere was one of the unlucky few to hit the deck on both runs.
The Oakley sender is still one of the biggest features and as such is the site of some of the biggest crashes. Mike Kinrade rode out of this in practice yesterday, but wasn't able to hang on this time.
By the time Mike Hopkins hit the ground he was well past his landing, and things didn't go well from there... This is the shot from his crash, but he is so small in the shot by the time he crashed you can't see anything at all. A truly epic jump.
First place qualifier Cam McCaul boosting the canyon gap. Cam had a sweet run and really deserved his score. Hopefully we will see big things from him on Sunday.
People wonder whether Blinky is mad for riding World Cups gloveless... You really wouldn't want to dive hand first into some of the rocks here...
Crankworx Slopestyle winner Thomas Genon with some racer style.
Pierre Edouard Ferry had a cool line that no-one else was riding. It had an awkward turn in the middle, but his creativity was rewarded with a place in the final.
Brendan went OTB on the landing of the opening drop on his first run and hurt his knee, he didn't have a good second run either. Last place qualifier means we will see his gap on Sunday, just as long as he doesn't get the hire truck stuck again..
