Today's weather played another huge role in the Colorado Freeride Festival slopestyle contest. Today was scheduled to be qualifiers and finals, however a classic afternoon rain shower moved in a pushed the finals to tomorrow morning. With sunshine in the forecast for the am, the contest is set to go off at 10am MST.

An all to familiar scene here in Winter Park, blown rear tires. Nick Simcik had an awesome day aside from this flat, landing his first ever front flip. Congrats Nick!
Fresh to being a Colorado resident, Dominic Megalli was pushing it hard in qualifying including this tuck no 360.
Cam Zink had some good runs during qualifying. Cam is currently sitting in third place going into tomorrow's finals.
Anthony Messere with his classic style spinning a 360 off the quick on off feature.
Tyler McCaul was lining up a great run with tricks on nearly every feature. He will be the first to drop in tomorrow's finals.
One of the few riders to trick the opening drop during finals warm up, Kelly McGarry was looking great before the rain opened up.

When the rain first started the riders asked for the wood to be covered in hopes that it wouldn't last long. Unfortunately the rain is still coming down here in Winter Park.

Less then ideal weather postponed the finals until tomorrow morning and all the dirt got a plastic tuck in for the night.
Even with the contest being postponed until tomorrow, park director Bob Holme tossed up the hang loose.
Stay tuned tomorrow for more action from the Colorado Freeride Festival in Winter Park, Colorado!
