The Dew Tour is an important stop on the US competition circuit – even more so this year as it’s one of five stops from which the US halfpipe and slopestyle teams for Sochi will be decided. Needless to say, for the US team especially, the stakes were high if any of these guys want to be repping the US in February.
Jamie Anderson Wins Women’s Slopestyle
First up on the competition schedule was women’s slopestyle. Each of the eight qualifying riders had two runs to put down their highest score and after sending it way too deep on the first jump of her first run and stacking, Jamie Anderson got it back together on her second, stomping a super tech run with a cab 720, switch backside 540, front 360 and front 540 to post a score of 96 and take the win:
Silje Norendal also scuffed her first run but pulled it out of the bag second time round with a hammer run that included a cab 5, front 5, switch front board, switch back 1 and backside 540. This run had her temporarily in first place:
Enni Rukajarvi was up next and having also fallen on her first run, had it all to do in run two. A backside 540 to cab 540 to frontside 360 to backside 720 later and she’d overtaken Silje with a score of 89.40. Jamie was last to drop and we’ve already seen what went down there…
Congrats to all three ladies for bossing it!
