24 women were competing in today’s semi-final to try and secure a place in the final tomorrow. The pressure is on, as not only are they fighting to win a prize here in Montpellier, they are fighting for points towards qualifying their country for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. It was an international affair as riders representing 15 different countries took part. Despite the global presence, it was an all USA top 2 here today. Yesterday’s top place qualifier Hannah Roberts did it again. She finished top with a score of 90.6pts after completing a first run that was packed with tricks. In second was Hannah’s team USA team mate and friend Perris Benegas, who will be pushing Hannah all the way in tomorrow’s final. In 3rd place was team GB rider Charlotte Worthington who scored 81.4pts
Special mention for Ellie Chew from New Zealand, who just missed out on a place in the final tomorrow. She landed a backflip over the spine which the crowd loved. It is a trick we probably couldn’t have imagined seeing in a women's semi final a few years ago.
Join us for the final at 1pm tomorrow!
