Dew Tour Breck 2012 - Ski Superpipe Semi-Finals

Day two of the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships started off with the Men’s Freeski Superpipe Semi-Final breaking in the day under semi-clear skies and no winds.

The semi-final format consisted of 21 freeskiers, one of whom rose through the Free Flow Tour ranks, each taking two runs during a single heat of two rounds with only their best score counting. Considering only the top ten skiers will be moving on to the finals, the semi-final level of competition resembled a winner-take-all attitude from the athletes.

Once the final skier had made his way down the pipe, the best score of the day went to Mike Riddle and his first run of the day. Mike Riddle was able to secure himself the top spot early on and will be back for finals to step his game up. His run consisted of a double 1260, right 900, left 900, flatspin 360, switch left 900 and a switch right 900.

“It felt pretty amazing to win today. They narrowed it down from three stops to one this year. It is a pretty big deal. They are reallypulling out all the stops, so it felt pretty good to come out on top. I am feeling real strong this year and can’t wait for finals.”

David Wise and Justin Dorey rounded out the top three from semis respectively.

With the stacked lineup of riders set to go in finals, be excited to watch them on Friday at 5p.m. ET either in person or on TV on the NBC Sports Network – where a never-before-seen cable-cam angle will be showcasing the action!
