Grand Prix Update: We speak with Dumont, Dorey, Blunck
This morning, 50 competitors faced off in the Grand Prix superpipe qualifier at Copper Mountain; we saw two heats, each comprised of 25 riders. After two runs per skier, with the best score counting, five from each heat advanced to Friday’s final, plus two additional athletes: those who banked the next highest scores between the two heats. When it was all said and done, these 12 athletes advanced. Amid the action, we caught up with a few of the competitors—the sound bites are embedded below for your listening pleasure.
