Oakley Shaun White Air & Style Beijing 2012 - Rider Draw

Last year´s winner Ulrik Badertscher will be battling with fellow Norwegian Torgeir Bergrem in tomorrow´s first-round of the Oakley and Shaun White present Air & Style Beijing 2012. Likewise, American riders Sage Kotsenburg and Chas Guldemond will be trying to eliminate a fellow countryman in the first round. Peetu Piroiinen was the lucky guy of today´s first-round draw, as he received a bye due to Nils Arvidsson´s short-notice cancellation. The second practice session was held today, and riders were pushing it even further, testing the limits of the megaramp for the contest on Saturday. Werner Stock took a heavy hit on the landing during practice and unfortunately suffered a competition-ending injury. His first-round opponent Yuki Kadono will now advance automatically to round 2.
