In qualifying we all rode great, but the field was super tight and only 12 out of 45 riders made it to the finals, I just missed them myself, but Brian Miller and Greg Watts made it in no problem with killer runs. Miller threw down a sweet run, a little on the conservative side because he is nursing a badly rolled ankle, but still good enough for 7th!!! Greg's first run was a safety run to get something in the bag, which he nailed. His second run was perfect, including flip whips, 3 whips, 360 drops, tailwhips, until he landed his flip whip on the last jump and his tire blew out sending him to the ground, ending what would have been a top 3 run. He was pretty bummed, but what can you do.
Anyway it was a lot of fun, and you can check out the contest on NBC later this summer when it airs. In the mean time here's some photos and a video from VitalMTB.
