Michael Goulian, who has had a terrific season so far, had a problem at one of the air gates that produced a 2-second penalty and dropped him out of the competition in the Round of 14. The result meant that Goulian collected zero points in the race. “My plan for the next two races is just to do what we’ve been doing,” Goulian said after the race. “This race was just an anomaly, just a blip in the road. Yoshi (Muroya) said last year, when he won the World Championship, they planned on zero points at two races, so I think if we can stick to that plan, we still have a shot at this year’s World Championship and that’s the goal.” Goulian is now in third with 55 points, three points behind second place contender Matt Hall.
