After several days of rain the weather cooperated today giving riders just enough time to get two runs in before the skies opened up again. In that few hours riders and course workers hastily prepared the course and managed to get some practice in and the contest done! Brandon Semenuk really wants to win the FMB World Tour this year, after losing out last year due to injury at Crankworx. He his on a winning rampage; this is his second FMB Gold event win of the season, and his third consecutive win of the year. If he continues like this, he'll be challenging Yannick Granieri, Sam Pilgrim, and Martin Soderstrom for the overall series lead fairly soon... With his 2nd place finish here Yannick Granieri has moved into 1st place overall knocking out past leader Sam Pilgrim for the first time. Kyle Strait bobbled on his first run but through down a great second run for third place. Greg Watts had a great first run but was unable to do a second due to injury, his 4th place finish here should move him solidly into the top 10 overall. Mitch Chubey looked like he was having the run of the day on his second run but lost it 3 jumps from the bottom when he didn't land both pedals and ended up 5th, good enough to keep him in the top group on the overall scoreboard and even move himself up into 4th.
