The first runs of the X-Games slopestyle have been run and the finalists decided. A few big names have been left off the final 8 list, but with 20 of the best riders in the world competing, there was always going to be one or two megastars missing from the final list; PK Hunder, Russ Henshaw, and Sammy Carlson to name a few. More importantly though is the top of the list, where the unstoppable Bobby Brown is currently sitting, followed, not even that closely by Tom Wallisch and Elias Ambhul.
After a few concerns about the course over the last few days, everyone seemed to be getting the speed more easily, and it looked like the organisers had managed to iron out most of the problems. Double corks were in abundance, and it looks like the Slopestyle final will be one hell of an event, so be sure to check it live on Friday. In the mean time, here’s a run from Bobby Brown.
