Sensi Graves had an absolutely standout performance today bringing her up from fourth in the ranking after yesterdays competition to now leading the pack with Karolina Winkowska and Colleen Carroll following just behind. Sensi’s composed execution and technical riding today earned her the highest scoring hit of the women’s competition thus far.
Following the women’s last semi final round of slider hits, they completed the right foot forward kicker and will continue again tomorrow starting with the left foot forward kicker. After the women came off the water it was men’s heat 1 that was up first on the right foot forward kicker.
Brandon Scheid had another stellar performance today pinning him as one of the top guys of the competition and easily a contender for the title finishing the day off with the highest combined score of the contest. However, there is still a lot of competition to come and with guys like Ewan Jaspan trailing him closely behind, anything could still happen.
Men’s heat 2 is still the tightest heat of the competition with Sam Light, Noe Font and Craig Cunningham sitting at the top after all three riders landed clean and well executed double passes of the right foot kicker.
In men’s heat 3, Christophe Tack maintained his lead by landing a nose grab moby-dick 540 and earning himself a 9.0, the highest scoring trick of the competition thus far. With the semi-final rounds almost complete, the competition will pick up tomorrow with men’s and women’s left foot forward kicker hits and then continuing straight into the final rounds. There will be a 9 man final and a 5 women final, check The Slider Project facebook page for the most up to date event status and happenings.
