    Dear Vital,
    Great coverage as usual but be careful with your captions. I had a mechanical first run. 2nd round Wil White and I were the last two on the ridge with exposed lines and the wind picked up huge. There was no "havoc wreaked nerves or bowing out", we requested to wait until the wind died down, there was a miscommunication and we lost out on our second quali runs. totally sucked, thanks for clearing that up for everybody.

    Sorry about that, Van Dine. Just adjusted the caption. Wish you could've gone!

    Nothing about Simcik, again? No one saw his backflip in his 2nd run? One place ahead of Messere and one place behind Pilgrim and still no one mentions him...such a shame!

    A last second rider change had us running from Wil White's line to Simcik's. I ate it with my camera in hand because I was hustling so fast. Sadly, the backflip photo wasn't in focus after my face plant and Nick didn't flip it on run one.

    Aww, shame! Thanks for the great coverage nonetheless. Sounds like it's as hard to say right side up in your shoes as it is on wheels!

    Pfwoar what a show!
    The video of Hopkins overshooting that jump is in the video recap from today...can't believe he's basically walked away from that unscathed...
