Janne Korpi, the 2013 Slopestyle World Championships Bronze medallist, has once again underlined his jibbing skills at the qualifiers for the FIS Snowboard World Cup season's second slopestyle event staged in the Czech winter sport resort Spindleruv Mlyn.
The 27 years-old rider from Finland impressed the judges with his second run earning an impressive score of 94.66 points.
He thus led a total of eight men straight into the finals as always the best two riders from heat 1 thru 4 were awarded with direct spots for the finals.
While Korpi was the only Finn to make it, two Norwegians (Torstein Horgmo, Staale Sandbech), two US-guys (Sage Kotsenburg, Eric Beauchemin), one Swede (Sven Thorgren), one Austrian (Mathias Weissenbacher) and one Japanese ripper (Yuuki Kadono) will also compete on Saturday when the finals are scheduled for 1:30 PM CET.
However, four more men are still missing to fill up the field of twelve riders battling for the win.
According to this, 20 men will get their second chance to qualify in the semis which will kick off Saturday at 10:30 AM.
