After the excitement of the slopestyle qualifiers, we have to throw our attention over to the superpipe as the pipe rats took charge. Like the slopestyle, there were a couple of standout riders that need a mention. Benoit Valentin grabbed top spot in heat one after throwing down a left double flare, alley-oop flat 3, left switch 720 mute and a right side cork 9 tail. One hell of a run that only David Wise could get close to after stomping a left flare mute grab, alley-oop flat 3 mute, switch right 7 tail, left 9 tail, right 9 nose and alley-oop cork 9. That gave Wise the best score of the day with an 87.17.Jonas Hunziker was in the mix again with a sixth place finish in heat one. Again, he’s one to keep an eye on likewise in the slopestyle event.Results Heat 1 1) Benoit Valentin – 84.33 2) Noah Bowman – 81.17 3) Joffrey Pollet-Villard – 79.50 4) Christian Allen – 78.67 5) Rob Heule – 78.17 6) Jonas Hunziker – 75.67 7) Joss Christensen – 75.50
