Stevenson First, Hall Third at Dew Tour Streetstyle
Saturday night, under the lights, Dew Tour held the men's ski super streetstyle qualifier and final, where 2x Olympian Colby Stevenson took first, and teammate Alex Hall took third. Oregon's Tucker FitzSimons placed second.
The super streetstyle event consisted of three separate heats, with four athletes in each heat. Each competitor was allowed three attempts to earn a high enough score to advance into the second round. Two competitors from each heat then battled it off, head to head, to advance to the podium showdown. Stevenson, FitzSimons and Hall took their turns at duking it out on the course.
The streetstyle course included four different sections of a variety of rails to choose from. The first section had a staircase with two hand rails on either side, as well as a pole jam and barrier to a waterfall down rail. The second section had a flat rail, a down rail, and a pole jam to two separate down rails. The third section had a jersey barrier rail, a flat box or a fence flat rail to a corrugated down tube, as well as a shipping container feature. The last section contained a pole jam to a wall ride, a flat rail transfer to a down kinked rail, and lastly a down flat rail.
Stevenson earned his top spot with a score of 92.66, with a run including a switch 270 onto the waterfall rail, pretzel 450 out, to a backside 360 switchup on the transfer, 270 out, to a right side 450 onto the jersey barrier and switch out, and ending the run with a switch on, front swap over the transfer, continuing 270 out. FitzSimon's earned his silver with a 89.33, and rounding it out in third was Hall with a 70.00.
