Freestyle.Berlin qualification day 1

The first round of the ski big air at Freestyle.Berlin is over, and it looks like this event is going to provide just as much quality action as the event in zurich two weeks ago, and double corks were certainly still on the menu.

Henrik Harlaut qualified in first with a sweet 900 true tail that could have been his technical trick, but was so stylee that…well it was just definately a style trick! He eventually stomped his double cork 1260 on his third run. Second place was Sammy Carlson with a flatspin 540 japan to mute (style round), and double 1080 with his signature poke which he too stomped on his second attempt…it appeared that the soft nature of the snow on landing was causing some issues for the riders.

Jon Olsson came in third with a switch 540 truck driver which was a bit of a blast from the past, and seems to have his double flips down to perfection with his double flip 1080 (safety to japan) seeing him through to the sunday final with ease.TJ Schiller took the final qualification place with his trademark flat spin 540 bow and arrow and the double cork 1260 that he was having problems with in Zurich.
