Qualified Riders Decided at O’Neill Evolution Pipe.

Following on from the girls yesterday, it was the guys turn to take to Davos’ finely sculpted superpipe as the qualifiers kicked off.

Over 50 riders were duking it out for one of the coveted 17 spots in the semis and a chance to mix it up with the invited pros like Marko Grilc, Peetu Piiroinen, Markus Keller and Iouri Podladtchkov.

Our woman on the ground in Davos will be posting a more in-depth report of today’s action later, but for those of you who demand information asap, here’s the heat winners’ runs and the list of the 17 who’ll duke it out with the big boys on Friday.
