Another prime day in Breckenridge played host to the 2013 Dew Tour men’s slopestyle qualifiers, with 30 riders coming out to fight for a spot in Sunday’s slopestyle finals. Given that slopestyle will be making its Olympic debut this year, the level of riding was at an all-time high, with riders vying to take a top spot at this first Olympic qualifier.

Each rider took two runs, with their best score determining their overall rank. After the first round of runs, Shaun White came out on top, snagging a 93.20 and first place, a spot which he didn’t relinquish for the rest of the comp. Shaun also won yesterday’s superpipe qualifier, making him a double threat going into this weekend’s finals.

After a few shaky first runs, both McMorris and Kotsenburg came out swinging for run two, nabbing 11th and 6th place, respectively, and a spot in finals.Mark McMorris, Stale Sandbech, Seb Toots, Chas Guldemond, Gjermund Braaten, Alex Oestreng, and Torstein Horgmo were just a few of the top tier riders that showed up to battle it out, but in the end no one could top Shaun White’s 93.20. Coming in second was Breck’s hometown hero Eric Willet, with third place going to Seb Toots.
