Sage Kotsenburg earns top spot after men’s Copper Grand Prix slopestyle qualifiers wrap

After four heats of qualifiers finally wrapped, it looks like Sage Kotsenburg, Torstein Horgmo, Scotty James & Stale Sandbech topped their respective showdowns. After Torstein missed out on qualifying into last weekend’s Dew Tour finals, and Sage Kotsenburg missed the podium, it looks like they are back on point and determined to get back to the top of the leader board. Sage posted the top score of the day, while Shaun White, who sat out last weekend’s Dew Tour slopestyle contest with a bad ankle, ended up taking a mellow 3rd in his heat.
