X-Games Day 3 - Halfpipe Qualifications

Riders in this news :   ; 

We told you Rossignol riders were in good shape!

Today, the real world is on; superpipe ski qualifications. A event to which only 18 riders can take part of…hey! We’re talking about the best freestylers in the world!

Qualifications’ outcome sounds like a blockbuster's trailer; only 8 riders will get to the finals…it’s obvious that every single run is worth its weight in gold. Xavier Bertoni goes first…he throws a legendary run and owns 87,66 points. After this super sick run Xavier gets the first place and Kevin is just behind with 80,00 points! Can you believe it? Our two French riders 1st and 2nd after the first run!

We hold our breath for the second run. Xavier and Kevin did not score higher and some rider named Tanner Hall got the first position…

Anyway it’s a sick-o result for Xavier and Kevin; they get 2nd and 4th as we’re done with qualifications. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s X-Games XIII superpipe finals!

1. Tanner Hall
2. Xavier Bertoni (Rossignol)
3. Justin Dorey
4. Kevin Rolland (Rossignol)
