The wind started to pick up so it was tough for the riders. When there was a break in the wind riders would squeeze in a few tricks. Matt Dennis looking smooth out there.

Carson making it look easy. Not too much action during today s practice as the wind picked up quite a bit. Many of them called it quits early but tomorrow s finals should be promising.
