#8 qualifier Odi Bakchis loses to J.Hurst, who was only 25th! F. Wang and R. Thorne crash twice, but Forest advances to the Top 16.
C. Forsberg vs M. Field – close battle, and we get OMT! During the second run, Matt eliminates Chris! D. Hughes loses to D. Kearney.
In the second stage of the tandem runs, we lost K. Gushi as Tuerck and Castro crashed. Deane and DeNofa had to go for the OMT to advance to the Great 8.
While chasing Hurst, Tuerck crashed into his opponent, and the judges found him guilty. Aasbo eliminated Deane (Irishman was too wide at the OZ1 while leading), and Field was better than DeNofa (spun during the lead run).
Charpentier advanced to the final as Hurst went very wide at the OZ1. Field spun at the OZ1 while chasing Aasbo as Norwegian went wide, tapped the wall, and was slowing down at this moment, causing a spin.
Fredric Aasbo takes the final step on the podium as Matt Field beats Rome Charpentier. Championship standings.
