Jamie Nicholls into slopestyle final!

Thu 06 February 14

It was mixed news for the GB Slopestyle riders in the men's category, Jamie Nicholls produced an amazing second run to go straight into the finals but Billy Morgan will need to progress in the Semi Finals to join him!

Nicholls was looking like he would have to settle for the Semi Finals but his second run was seamless and moved him up into a top-four finish and immediate progression into the final.
 
Speaking about his run Jamie said:
"I can't believe what I've done - that was the best run of my life," 
 
Team GB rider Billy Morgan will  have to battle it out in the semi-finals to make it through to the finals but many thought his run was harshly judged. Especially after he threw down a backside triple cork a first for the olympics and a trick many riders have down as the one to nail if they are going to make the podium in the slopestyle. Despite all this a top four finish in the semis will see Billy Progess to join Jamie.
 
Outside of the British team it was Staale Sandbech who qualified in 1st with a best score of 94.50. Peetu Piiroinen and Sebastien Toutant followed closely behind in second and third position.
