Daniel Woods can often be found at The Spot, or on the front page of the paper!

Jonny Hork Forerunning Women's Semis on Friday night

Oh yeah, and Rock and Ice made a semifinals highlights video HERE.

Back at the Spot, this week things finally got back to normal after several weeks of competition setting and resetting.  Though Jonny was still in Vail and recovering from Vail, and Jay Jay is in California, Garret, Carlo, Jon, and I stripped the left side of the river wall and re-set it, so all the problems are new and improved, just for you!  Also, Jon found the most comfortable seat in the house.

Did we mention the Spot has air conditioning?  It’s cooler than outside, so see you here!

Vail 2010 Top Falls

I took a bunch of pictures, and over and over again my favorites were the ones of people falling.  Sorry guys, everyone likes to see you succeed, but some of these expressions and body positions are priceless.  Here are the best of the best, in reverse order:

12 – Last year’s winner Jonas Baumann just missing the flash of Men’s Semifinal 4

As you all know by now, Daniel eventually stuck the dyno and won the comp.  The thing is, it was clear he’d won before he even got on this problem, but he took a beating anyways because he’s a good competitor and it was good sportsmanship for him to try his hardest to send the problem and give us all a show (a feat that he almost accomplished until the final foothold dropped him off just short of the last jug on his last try).  Thanks Daniel!  Hope you weren’t too bruised up from all of this!
