A large crowd came to watch Day 2 of FISE World and they didn’t leave disappointed.
Mountain Bike Slopestyle kicked things off as Canadian man-of-the-moment, Brett Rheeder, dropped a beast of a run to qualify for today’s final in 1st place.
Rheeder goes into day 3 in supreme form, and it will take a superhuman effort to stop him winning Gold at his first ever FISE event.
Up next was the UCI BMX Freestyle Park Semi Final.
The level of riding was so good, that just one mistake ended any chance of progressing to today’s final.
Mistakes weren’t an issue for Australian machine Logan Martin, whose precision when nailing various transfers are next level.
Add this to his ability to pull tricks on every part of the course, and Logan is the undoubtedly the rider to beat.
USA’s Nick Bruce (who is simultaneously producing webisodes of his time in Edmonton whilst competing!) qualified in second, whilst Croatia’s Marin Rantes took third.
Do not miss today’s final as Logan Martin, podium mainstay Daniel Dhers and 10 of the best rider’s on the planet go head-to-head for Gold.
Following the epic BMX, the crowd were treated to some of the world’s best skateboarders ripping up the Park course.
Frenchman Joseph Garbaccio qualified in first delivering his lines with effortless style and grace.
Garbaccio is definitely the man to beat, but with today’s final consisting of class acts including Ryan Decenzo, Greg Lutzkaand Jon Consentino, anything is possible.
An awesome day 2 ended with the much hyped BMX Flat Semi-Final.
BMX Flatland has definitely captured the imagine of the local public, and the 6 riders didn’t disappoint last night.
Bringing the huge crowd to their feet on numerous occasions, they continued to take the sport to new heights.
After some incredibly tight battles that no one deserved to lose, it was Matthias Dandois, Alex Jumelin, and Adam Kunwho complete the line-up for today’s final.
However, we simply couldn’t write a day 2 wrap up without mentioning local boy Percy Marshall.
An effortlessly cool guy, Percy’s old-school style didn’t look out of place amongst the world’s best riders, and we can honestly say – we’ve rarely seen a crowd cheer more passionately for a FISE athlete.
So there we have it. Day 2 showcased the best of FISE World: passionate crowds, world-class riding, and an electric atmosphere.
Day 3 promises to be no different, so if you’re anywhere near Hawrelak Park, grab a friend, family member, or even a stranger and head down.
We guarantee you won’t leave disappointed.
