10 March 2011 15:47

Reigning World Champions Holly Crawford and Nathan Johnstone have dominated today’s qualifiers of the season’s fifth halfpipe competition.

Both riders from Australia thus are also the main aspirants for the victory in the penultimate halfpipe contest whose finals are scheduled for tomorrow.

While Crawford, who went down in her first run, killed it in her second attempt earning 26.2 points for frontside air lien to backside air mute, frontside 720, cab 360 and frontside 540, her team mate from down under already impressed the judges in his first run (27.4).

Johnstone had pulled off an incredible run, executed with huge amplitude and style, which consisted of back-to-back 720’s, frontside 900, backside 540 and a stalefish to finish things off.
