Backyard Battle 2011: Day 1 & 2

The day of rail jamming under the sun was the perfect warm up to the Candy Invitational Rail Jam qualification. 13 riders stepped up to the plate for this comp and it turned out to be pretty hectic! James Woods was flying the flag high for the Brits and cementing his place in the ski world as one of the big hitters!

“We’ve had a great day here in my park,” said Andreas Håtveit. “The guys were just killing it on the rails, I was so impressed with the overall talent and creative tricks. It sucked to lose Jossi because he was in a class of his own during the practice session and having travelled over from New Zealand to be here its pretty tough on him to go down with an injury during the first session of the week.”

James Woods claimed the top spot ahead of Oskari Raitenan. Unfortunately Jossi Wells suffered an injury in the practice session so will be busy keeping the bench warm for the rest of the comp.

Eight riders were selected from the line of 13 to go through to the finals:
1. James Woods
2. Oskari Raitanen
3. Niklas Ericsson
4. Jeremy Pancras
5. Elvis Harsheim
6. Sigbjørn Tveit
7. Benjamin Forthun
8. Klaus Finne
