This massive Indian Air transfer on the Glen Helen uphill was impressive, but Sato shorted the landing by just over a bike length. He pinned his Yamaha YZ250 upon landing and rode away unscathed.
Todd Potter's repertoire of moves, extension, and comfort on the course helped him advance through each round of the contest with ease.
The designers included a Holloywood-esque sign into the backdrop.
Riders were judged on variety of tricks, use of course, extension, style, and energy. By earning the judge's favor on three, a rider moved on to the next round.
In the early moments to his final run of the day, Wes Agee suffered from a mechanical issue and lost a great deal of time correcting it. Because it was his first ever contest, he did not know that he had the option to call a timeout if needed. Agee rebounded from the issue and threw done an impressive run, which merited a third place finish.
Agee won "Best Trick" on the day with an underflip on the left hill step up. While a handful threw moves up the leap, Agee was the only rider to huck it on the left side.
