Semi-final 1 saw Camille Bouyer face Malo Guenole for the much-desired spot in the finals. With the heats now reduced to 6 minutes, the pressure to perform was higher than ever. Once again, it all came down to the final trick of the heat, as they had both been neck and neck throughout. Malo once again produced an accomplished display of riding, with his front flips, back flips and impeccable frontside 7. It was close but Camille could not quite top his competitors performance, and the spot in the finals went to Malo.
Xavi Corr is a young local rider, and this was his first ever semi-final at a GWA event. To make the situation even better, he had to face one of the top riders in the world, Titouan Galea for the second semi-final of the day. Xavi opened up landing three solid tricks, whilst Titouan struggled to land his first attempts. However, as we approached the halfway mark, they were almost identical in points. Xavi went all in, feeling comfortable in his home conditions, and on his final trick attempt he threw out an insane frontside 7 scoring 8.73 points, whilst Titouan crashed his last attempt losing valuable points. Xavi deservedly locked down his spot in the finals, where he would face Malo Guenole.
