Dynastar athletes start off to a promising start


Mike Riddle and Justin Dorey descended upon Aspen Colorado to show the world their talents at the 2008 Winter X-Games. Today, January 23, 2008 was the semi-finals for the Supper Halfpipe where Justin and Mike had to qualify in to the top 10 out of 16 athletes in order to compete in the finals. Mike Riddle laid down two solid runs putting him in 5th place going into finals tomorrow January 24th.

Justin Dorey had a disappointing evening, clipping the deck in the middle of his first run loosing a ski and putting tremendous pressure on the second run. Justin  skied incredibly well stomping all his tricks on the final run until the last hit he came up short on a switch nine, landing on his chest which eliminated him from the finals.

Thursday the 24th 9-11pm eastern time the finals will be aired LIVE on ESPN. Check it out to see Mike Riddle compete in the biggest competition of the season.
