Calgary, Canada - Kevin Reimer set the fastest time during the first qualifying session for Sunday's World Championship Downhill Skateboarding main event. He was followed by Dillon Stephens and Niko Desmarais to make it an all Canadian top three. Kyle Wester from Colorado, USA put in a great run to earn the number for spot and Swedens' Adam Perrson rounded out the top five.
Louis Pilloni, Zak Maytum, Kyle Martin earned positions six through eight. Defending Champion Patrick Switzer was ninth and Byron Essert was tenth. 184 skateboarders made a qualifying attempt. Tomorrow each skater will make a second qualifying attempt.
Lally Looking to Dominate
Auto racing star Andy Lally appear to be in a league of his own after today's first roud of Street Luge qualifying. Last years NASCAR Spint Cup Rookie of the Year and three time winner of the Daytona 24 Hour race posted a time more than two seconds faster than Kolby Parks who currently sits second. It remains to be seen if anyone can get close to Lally in today's second qualifying session. The rest of the field was bunched up a lot tighter. Following Parks was Christian Conaway in third, former world champion David Dean in fourth and Frank Williams in fifth. Today's final qualifying session will be broadcast live here at IGSAworldcup.com.
