The 2014 Winter Dew Tour is officially in the books. Once again, the week of competition in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado was an ultra success. The weather was near perfect and as usual, the athletes thoroughly impressed. In case you missed any of the action, or you simply want to re-live the Mountain Championships, we’ve compiled a series of highlights for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
Women’s superpipe finals:
From the get-go, it was Maddie Bowman who delivered the best tricks throughout the 2014 women’s superpipe finals. Bowman earned an 88.75 on her first run and a 91.25 on her second go-round. The Olympic gold medalist could not be stopped as she stomped her run flaunting a big straight air safety, a rightside 900, a left 540 nose, a straight air mute, a left cork 900 and a 720 to cap things off.
Women’s slopestyle finals:
Keri Herman added a nice, new, shiny Dew Cup to her trophy case at the 2014 Winter Dew Tour. The Minnesota native, who now calls Breckenridge home, skied her way to slopestyle gold with a run that consisted of a 270 out of the first rail feature; a front 270 out of the second rail; a switch 720 safety; a switch cork 540 Japan; a front swap on the Toyota Rail feature; a 720 safety and a right 720 tail on the last jump. The judges awarded Herman an 87.50 for her efforts.
Making the victory all the more special: Herman competed in front of her close family and friends.
Men’s superpipe finals:
Torin Yater-Wallace dominated the superpipe to claim the 2014 Dew Cup at Breckenridge Mountain. The 19-year-old out of Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley stomped one of the most massive and stylish halfpipe runs in the history of freeskiing. TYW boosted a monstrous dub 1260 mute, a left 1080 tail, a switch 720 tail, a huge alley-oop double 900 Japan and a double flat 900 Japan.
Men’s slopestyle finals:
From the get-go, men’s slopestyle finals belonged to Olympic medalist Gus Kenworthy. While conditions and speed issues proved to be difficult for many, Kenworthy managed to maneuver his way through the elements to post the two highest scores of the day (86.25, 88.75) on each of his trips through the course. Kenny G’s winning run consisted of a right 270 onto the first handrail, a left 270 on to 450 out on the second rail feature, a double cork 1080 tail, a right 900 opposite tail, a switch left 270 lipslide on to 450 off of the wallride, a switch right 720 Japan on the third jump to a switch double 900 Japan on the final jump.
