The stereotypical MSA shot. It's humid, to say the least.
Gee Atherton gives the fog an early morning session. The track spent most of the day pretty damn empty.
Canada's Steve Smith was second here at World's last year. He had a terrible playoff beard that he has since groomed into an atrocious moustache. Can he take first with less weight?
Ya, it's not in focus. It happens. Canada's Matt Zdriluk goes down hard and found out how big the holes really are up there.
This same section of track sent rider after rider flying through the woods on the ride of their lives; Including the random euro who broke my umbrella.
Australia's Sean O'Connor pretends it's dry and pins it through the woods. No problems here.
Mitch Delfs went down hard and sliced open his hand (he is at hospital getting it stiched up as I type this). Here he makes his way through the carnage of downed riders.
Gee Atherton took approximately one million runs today. Here is is slaying the high speed left under the lift.
This is about what most of the track looks like right now. This section is being filled with palettes tonight as rider after rider was getting sucked in and catapulted. The organizers sent up extra volunteers to help pry riders out of the mud.
