The first day of The Uninvited Invitational kicked off at Woodward Park City on Thursday with the collective foot of the invited riders on the metaphorical gas pedal.

Thursday was the first of two days of qualifiers for Saturday's finals, but because it's The Uninvited Invitational (read: it's the best), there were standouts awarded (read: giant checks and prize money).

Four riders who had made their presence known on Thursday were given their giant currency—worth 500 dollars USD—during the riders meeting on Friday. The judges noted that selecting only four riders as standouts of the day was tough—folks had been throwing down.

But four riders rose to the top, opening up different areas of the course, riding with power and fluidity, and leaving their mark on the day.
