Seven Skysurf Teams Qualify for the Richest Event In Skydiving History

June 5, 2000 - The Official Results are in from the 2000 SSI Virtual Open, where ten teams from six nations were vying for seven slots up for grabs at this year's SSI Skysurfing competition within the ESPN X Games. Judging took place June 3 with SSI Judges gathered both in person and online.
 
As most observers predicted, 98 X Games Gold Medalists Team Moscow (Valery Rozov and Clif Burch) lead the field from start to finish. However, it was team Phoenix (Tim Glas and Heiko Böger of Germany) that surprised many of the Judges by edging out many of the more experienced teams. Phoenix finished second with Cross Keys Inferno (Dave Briegs and Jack Baum) taking home the third place honors, with three more teams tightly packed behind them.
 
The seven teams qualifying from the SSI Open now join the three seeded medal winners from 1999 for the RICHEST EVENT IN SKYDIVING HISTORY - - guaranteed to surpass last year's record of $66,600. The Skysurfing venue at the X Games is set for near San Francisco, CA at a new location still TBA. Dates are August 9-14. The week long televised festival runs Aug 17-22.

New world rankings posted
Moscow Now Number One Seed

June 5, 2000 - June 5, 2000 - 98 X Games Gold Medalists Team Moscow (Valery Rozov and Clif Burch) used the Sky Points earned from their first place finish in the SSI Open to vault into the number one seeded slot in the SSI Pro World Rankings.
