Burnquist On Top After Skate Vert Prelims

The high from making a fakie to fakie 900 on his personal mega ramp a little over a week ago must still be lingering as Bob Burnquist grabbed the top spot in the vert prelims at the Toyota Challenge. Skating in a stacked heat that saw five of the eight skaters advancing to the finals on Sunday, Bob skated flawlessly scoring a 82.50 on his first run and upping it to a 87.50 on his second run with his signature switch trickery. Shaun White briefly took the lead in the heat on his first run with a 720 and a huge heelflip 540. He scored an 86.50, which was his best run, and good enough for second place in the heat and in the prelims.
