The men dropped into the pipe in the afternoon and perfect weather conditions continued for the men’s field.  Iouri Padladchikov (SUI) had a little trouble on his first run but came back to take the top spot with his second drop putting down a huge crippler, double McTwist 1260, frontside 1080 tailgrab, and a Cab 720.  With today’s result, Podladtchikov moved into World No. 1 in the Swatch TTR Rankings sitting behind current leader, Gjermund Braaten (NOR)   Japanese riders were out in full force and young 14-year old ripper, Taku Hiraoka, gave the men’s field a run for their money.  He threw down an excellent run to take second place.  And, American rider, Louie Vito, stepped it up with his second run to take home the third spot on the podium
