On the men’s side several Atomic riders were able to make the finals, including New Zealand's Byron Wells, and the American, Taylor Seaton, who just missed the podium in 5th and 6th, respectively. However, the night would belong to Byron's younger brother, Beau James Wells, who placed himself behind the Olympic Gold Medalist, David Wise, earning the silver medal. Beau James held the lead after his first run and even strengthened his score with his second attempt. He showed amazing technical abilities as he was the only athlete to have three double rotating tricks landed. However, his score in the 90's would not be enough to hold off Wise's final run of the competition.
