Skate park prelims saw some familiar faces and some not so familiar faces advancing to the finals on Saturday at the Toyota Challenge. Sort of a stranger to skating in prelims but not at being in the finals, Chaz Ortiz cruised his way to the top spot in skate park prelims with a score of 90.50.
Not disappointing his hometown fans or his 10-month baby girl, Adam Dyet skated the best he has all year on the tour and did what he does every time the Dew Tour comes to Utah by making the finals with his sixth place in prelims.
Another regular to this year’s skate park finals, and just missing the podium at each stop, was Bastien Salabanzi. He pulled all his regular tricks and just a few uncharacteristic falls kept him from qualifying higher than the seventh slot.
Sierra Fellers missed making the finals in Portland but got back on track to make his second finals of the year after qualifying in the eighth spot. Back-to-back bubble boy Fabrizio Santos made the cut once again and will be looking to improve on his tenth-place-finish in Portland. Joining these nine qualifiers in the finals are Greg Lutzka, Ryan Sheckler and Paul Rodriguez the top three points leaders racing for the Dew Cup.
