The sun came out today... half an hour after the awards were given. But we managed to get in all of our events without a hitch. Vanessa Torres braved the cold morning weather and got the gold in Ladie's street with Stefanie Thomas right behind. Chad Bartie went huge and fast to pull his win in the street finals and Kristian Svitak (check him out in the new Black Label video) got second and earned himself a position at the X Games. Meanwhile... Andy Macdonald pushed hard on the vert putting him into a well earned second behind Rune Glifberg, who brought the house down with an incredibly strong set of runs. Tas Pappas grabbed the X Games spot with a solid 5th place.

The weather gods were merciful today... kind of. After waking up to sunny skies and dry skatelite, the rain rolled just as the vert contest got under way. Lucky for us it was shortlived and we got the ramp dry and finished up around 7:30pm. Rune Glifberg is in first position going into the finals with Pierre-Luc Gagnon (photo) and Renton Millar following.

No Street semis or Best street trick today due to weather and time constraints, but tomorrow is another day and we'll be hitting it early to get it all in. So check us out tomorrow evening for the final results and photos.

After raining pretty much all day, street prelims finally happened and the weather held out for both heats. Because of the bad weather there will be no semis, so 15 of the the 31 skaters advanced straight to the finals. Caine Gayle qualified 1st with Dayne Brummet and Kyle Berard right behind. Tomorrow should be a great.

More rain is expected for tomorrow but hopefully vert prelims will be squeezed in between the downpours. Check back for results and photos.
