1. Thomas Genon
Wow, Brandon Semenuk seems unstoppable at the moment. Once again he threw down what was the winner on his first run. Thomas Genon took home the Hi-Chew Best Trick award with his truck driver to tailwhip combo.Top 3 First Runs
Brandon Semenuk - 360 x up off the drop, tail whip over the berm to berm, opposite whip on and opposite 360 off the whale tail, hard 3 over the hip, jumping clear over the up box, tuck no over the long low, and a cork 720 over the jump. 96.67

Part way through the 2nd runs there was a rain hold, and then the rain started to really come down. The decision was made to wait for things to dry out a bit before continuing the event.
Semenuk, Soderstrom and Rheeder couldn't quite keep it together on their second runs, so their first-run scores stand.FMBA Overall
Sam Pilgrim was unable to compete today, leaving the number one spot in the FMBA World Tour open for Martin Soderstrom. This is the first time Martin has been in the FMBA points lead, we'll have to see if he can keep it through Claw's, Crankworx, and Rampage.
