As night fell in Norway, it was the turn of the men to take to the big air jump in Hafjell. The jump wasn't the biggest, and after the insanity of the last World Cup in Destne, this event had a lot to live up to. Things started off with a bang though, everyone landing their tricks in the first run. With the scoreless judging format, it's hard to figure exactly what tricks are 'scoring' well, so we're just going to basically list the landed tricks here and say that skiing is insane right now.
Antoine Adelisse set the early bar with his trip 16 and switch pre-nose triple, and from there it was up to everyone else to catch up. There was a ton of insanity, and even some solid creativity on the night but ultimately, nobody could overhaul Antoine.
