The wind was fierce overnight but as the sun rose over the mesa for the last day of practice before finals, it was calm. It seemed like everyone was out riding their lines today, from Brendan Fairclough trying out his expanded canyon gap on the far left of the mountain to Reed Boogs, Emil Johannson, and Reece Wallace hitting their new drop for the very first time on the complete opposite side.
Throughout the mountain, riders were sending the biggest features on their lines and trying to get as comfortable as possible with their tricks and speed ahead of the big day tomorrow. The action was fierce at times, with riders sending parts of their lines across the mountain simultaneously and there were many relieved and excited whoops of joy heard across the mountain.
For the first run tomorrow we'll see Cam Zink riding first followed by Bienvenido Aguado Alba, Carson Storch, and Emil Johansson. The first 11 riders' positions were randomly drawn, while the final 10 will ride in the reverse order that they finished in last year. The second run will depend on how their score after the first run so it's anyone's guess as to what that will be.
