  After two days of less than great weather Sunday showed up with bright sunshine and blue skies. Brett Rheeder and a bunch of the other riders look across at the starting step down.

  While Jordie and a few others take a long look from the top...

  While it was sunny and warm on Sunday, a lot of the dirt still needed to be dried out from the previous days rains. Geoff Pendrel takes the task to hand.

  Geoff Gulevich, Paul Genovese, and Anthony Messere take early advantage of the good weather to get some much needed practice in.

  Gully dropping in...

  Brandon Semenuk, dumping threes in the morning

  While Mike Montgomery chooses to table them instead

  Brendan Howey and Paul Genovese getting their hands off, suicide and tuck style

  Greg Watts, showing that he can suicide as well.

  After a lot of deliberation and a few botched attempts, it was decided that the course would start on the scaffolding, and the step down/step up fruit bowl combo wouldn't be used.

  The beer garden was packed on Sunday. Tippie, entertaining the crowd and giving away T-Shirts and GoPro's...

  Anthony was the first to guinea the starting step down and he jumped almost to flat. A short while later he was busy getting sideways on the barge again.

  Mike Montgomery threw down some sick tricks including a double whip and a 360 seat grab Indian Air, but he didn't manage to put a decent full run together. 8th place.

  Justin Wyper suffered the same fate, a few big tricks, but no solid run.

  Greg Watts got a little squirrely off the drop and ended up casing and going otb onto his face. No serious damage that a few stitches couldn't fix, but with his previous neck injury everyone was being cautious. Casey and Anthony wait while the paramedics get him packaged up and taken to the hospital for x-rays...

  Sam Dueck was throwing huge super whips on almost every run, and he front flipped the last jump to flat. Unfortunately none of that linked together into one run, 11th place for Sam.

  Anthony Messere was the first to hit the first jump on Saturday, and he rode at least half the course on the first go. That's quite an accomplishment for this course. Third place at the end of the day.

  Brett Rheeder is ready to make his mark this season, and his riding here will not go unnoticed. Second place overall.

  Brandon Semenuk is back. First event of the year for him, and it's almost like he never left. Flip barspins, trucks, dumped threes, and then a super sick looking corked seven. How long before he catches up to Sam in the points race?

  This event has been brought to you by a lot of hard work and contributions from a bunch of great sponsors, but mostly it's the imagination of this man, Jordie Lunn.

 There were stairs behind the containers. You can see them in www.pinkbike.com/photo/8316756 -- The down-ramp on the front was the run-in for the best-trick jump

 Uh oh... I'd love to see Pilgrim win the FMB tour, but if Semenuk's first comp is anything to go by, he's gonna need to pull out more than a few tidy flip tucks...

Also, Montgomery with a 360 seatgrab indian air? WHAT.
