|Sunday October 8th
What a day! The sun was shining and the crowds were out in full force.
The first event of the day was Masters Bowl. Everyone was skating great but Lance Mountain (1st place, $2,000) and Steve Caballero(2nd place, $1,000) wouldn't let anyone take the top 2 spots. It is pretty much a given that they will finish 1 and 2 in the Bowl anymore! Sasha Steinhorst put on a great show also, landing him 3rd place and $600.
The rest of the day is pretty much a blur at this point with Street Semis followed by Vert Semis, then back to Street Finals and Street Best Trick and finally back to Vert Finals and Vert Best Trick!
Street Finals was really exciting with an international top 3. Geoff Rowley took 3rd place and $5,000 after qualifying 1st in the semis. Taking second and $8,000 was Canadian Rick McCrank and 1st place and $15,000 was Kerry Getz. Kerry also earned and extra $10,000 for being the Triple Crown Overall Street Champion!
Vert Finals was incredible as usual but even more interesting because of how much was riding on the results. The Triple Crown Overall Champion was still up for grabs even though it seemd Bob Burnquist had it in the bag. If Andy Macdonlad won and Bob got less than 5th place, Andy would have taken the overall title. He didn't though, because Bob was able to put together a great run to place 3rd place and locking in his overall Triple Crown Title. Bob left the event with $5,000 for his 3rd place finish, another $10,000 for the overall Vert combined title and also a Ford Ranger for the Overall Points Champion for the Triple Crown Series! Wow!!!
Andy Macdonald had a great showing, taking 2nd place and $8,000. The story of the day was Rune Glifberg, skating perfect all weekend and stepping it up another notch in the finals. His 97.5 final run was one of the best vert runs of all time and gave him 1st place and $15,000.
