here at Breckenridge Colorado as the wind is gusting just a little bit a bit of concern for those who will be venturing across these as we said 55 60 and 65 foot kickers here as we focus primarily on the jump portion of the slopestyle course after a break we'll head over to the rail section for more on the current conditions let's check in now with Tina Dickson yeah thanks Todd and right now I'm standing at the bottom of those three jumps the final jump is actually right behind me now in terms of conditions the good news is the visibility is perfect clear blue skies you guys talked about the wind we will have to keep our eyes on that it is slightly breezy out here I just spoke to the skeet sport organizer and he said hey we're good to go everyone's ready on top and the speeds and the size of those jumps in the shape those jumps will allow for those bigger tricks so it is going to be very important to keep our eyes on the wind and especially those flags on the sides of those jumps so we'll just keep you posted on that copy all right thank you very much Tina more from you as the competition progresses Luke we are just about set to go again in his 12 athletes who have made the final here they will each get three runs on these three amigos the three big jumps and they will be scored on their best run this is the men's ski slope style final from the winter Dew Tour glad to have you with us Luke van Valen Todd Harris Tina Dixon and it'll be Fabian Bose the first skier out of Switzerland they'll have the honors of dropping in first now as we said before you'll have three jumps you'll get three cracks at these and then they'll take a short recess look then it'll be on to the rail sections combine your two best scores from both those areas and we'll have a champion well prepare to see the state of sport ooh free skiing because three jumps in a row at the best in the world is going to be fairly mind-bending beautiful initial hit switch left side double 1440 now coming in hot over the shoulder on a big switch double misty 1260 will we see the double cork 16 and we do Fabian Bose took the top spot in the team competition with that exact run and he knows the judges love it that that was just a great way to start things off the first of three runs for Fabian Bose is 21 years of age and he comes in the first hit switch Luke and this is his offering the switch left side double cork 1444 complete spins and he grabs double Japan his right hand goes down under his ski his left hand locks down as well here's the switch double Misti 1260 safety grab so extremely complicated tricks right there one that pops him very deep into the landing you can see how far he went that all of course helped him in the amplitude aspect and I love this left side double cork 16 watch he grabs it and falls into this extreme like velocity improvement I mean everything speeds up right at that tail end when he gets that grab and drives it down into the landing beautiful performance nice opening score for Fabian bullsh in 88.3 3 he's got 2 more runs to go here in the slopestyle competition as we focus on the jumps oscar Wester Stockholm Sweden set to drop in here well I can talk about the conditions as Tina mentioned a little bit of wind coming across the top and it does not seem to be affecting these guys at all and left-side double cork 1260 safety grab fairly basic grab there on double cork 12 which is a very common trick from out here and a hard to the forward right side double cork 14 so spinning to is right there remember athletes are encouraged to spin both to the left and to the right why because it's more difficult in the people that could really do it well are going to be rewarded for it so it's become an imperative within slopestyle competition great run right there grabbing safety a little bit loose maybe you see his skis kind of scissor a little bit opens up a tiny bit there on the job at the beginning but a great set up trick for this switch right side double by Oh 1260 and there's the mute grab you can see his left hand goes down to the right ski holding onto it so well that was a beautiful trick matching Fabian Bush there and here's the right side double cork 14 you can see kind of lost his grab there and look for it again for complete spins Fabian Busch had an additional 180 and a slightly better grab there in terms of his duration of hold so much for warming up for these athletes they come out swinging here on run one of three and the judges are on point now knowing that these guys are going to bring it from the first to the third runs again we'll have the three runs here on the jump features and then take a short halftime break and then it'll switch over to the rail sections as a seventy-five drops now for Oscar Wester on run number one you see the wind big gust coming down the front of it and looks like I don't know Luke might be a time to maybe take a quick hold if you're the next athlete to drop in which we teal Harley yes he's saying about us he's wondering if he just made me had a little bit of bad luck coming in that's the situation by the modified super pipe the course which is just off to the skiers right and that's just a big gust it came through reef dusted everything and teal Harley out of Campbell River Canada is set to go so the international theme continues no Americans have gone just yet Harley came onto the scene about three years ago the Dumont Cup in Maine has won the Canada Cup and last year just pull acid onto the Canadian national team to the 5th at the Olympic Games and slopestyle such an awesome scared watch great right there I mean he'll grab throughout the entirety of that left side double cork 12 with beautiful of course all these numbers just you know physics reference two degrees of rotation and would be that 12 become just a stock a stock jump pretty recently I mean in the last five years or so so not quite locking in the grab with total perfection which is really what the judges are looking for there but a right side double cork 12 very well executed and down toward the bottom that was an exceptionally well grab left side version of that same trick here's the switch double cork 12 bones out the mute crab right there toward the tail end a good run for him three different 1261 starting back worth landing forwards one to the left and one to the right that trick was just gorgeous his execution the way he grabbed his ski everything about that was flawless as far as the 1260 goes I mean that's what the judges want to see there is some change maybe left on the table and compared to the two athletes we've seen who have done 40 40 s and 1620s in terms of difficulty and a score for tiel Harley of Canada's 80 point six seven on run number one back to the top of the course here on the slopestyle jump features this is Alex whooooa Marshawn in the Canadian to drop in we just saw teal Harley of Canada this is young man from the other side of the country comes to us from Quebec Ontario six countries represented out dierent spoke to a BAS agent studying city said the Alex is coming in with tremendous excitement and he knows that an animalistic type of fury switch [Applause] unbelievable you gotta love when athletes come in and they bring a little bit of a dynamic approach like I said we'll see a lot of double cork 12 60s and things like that were they athlete kind of leans onto their heels they're coming off the job in their head is kind of positioning behind their body in the axis of rotation ABF pretty much didn't even touch that axis of spinning the switch right side double double rodeo 1080 well stopped here's the switch to the left double misty 1260 puts that down keep clean up that land he just by going a little bit bigger his rotation and execution on the trick in the air was fantastic and then rolling this big double by oh well mute grab 1260 right to his feet beautifully done I love the way he rolls it over the handlebars that's gonna send him further down the landing look at that grab holding it so long unfolding the trick and blasting right into the snow just just great score for ABM and it's 78 for the Canadians so he is slotted currently in third place with four competitors already completing their first run keeping the international theme going as we have Ferdinand doll out of regarde Norway dropping in on his first offering of three the early season environment for many of the athletes these days is in Austria place called stupa and perhaps he didn't OD the World Cup earlier this season really positive choice right there I think that he could just tell whoa I'm going way too fast coming into this job so slowed everything down opened her up and just really try to bring in those cat-like entities if you will find your feet what makes these world-class athletes so great is not only the tricks they can do in the air but Luke they're great at saving and falling correctly to minimize the damage to the body absolutely so looking at those flags doesn't appear to be a tremendous amount of wind as Ferdinand comes around very well grabbed chiclet picks up a ton of speed lands low does not speed check here's once again that switch 14 safety grab beautifully done spinning to the left so it's to switch and then he just comes mocking in there the wind has picked up a little bit knows he's going way too big you want to land right about there but he just continues going down at the very bottom without landing cool that was huge almost carries it to Dylan so he just poured it to artena Dix and he's yeah going a little too fast 2367 for a Norwegian Ferdinand Dahl he'll look to run number two and three next athlete to drop in his whistle Andrej Rick get laid and this guy is amazing you want to see some credible video parts go online and see some of his backcountry stylings and some of the things he can do not only in the backcountry but in urban settings he's he's truly a savage I mean when he first came out he was you know 15 or 16 years old you'd he'd show up at a competition and he was always so fun to watch and now that he's really come into his own I mean seemingly nil limit is the first athlete to throw a quadruple so when you're talking about triples that's kind of old hat to this cat just flawless perfection on the left side double corks 16 right to his feet perfectly done that is such a big trick it's one bigger competitions around the globe and to be able to incorporate that now into a slope style bet I mean it's just fantastic and see him almost utilize a second natured sort of feel when he's in the air it looks like he's most comfortable let's not forget he's just 20 years of age yeah that's not fair right side double cork 1260 gets the tail crab here is on the switch double Misti 16 fat that's insane I don't know that I've ever seen that in my life and then of course right they are 1 4 look up whines that switch double Misti 16 20 that is just absolutely bonkers here's the left side double 16 so back-to-back double corks 1620s in his rug so that's that's four and a half spins for those who aren't interested in counting the 360 degree rotation the hill yeah here he comes there's the 1080 comes to 1440 and eventually the 60 20 yeah I mean exactly Todd like you win like he just didn't hawk off a 65-foot kicker and go four rotations this would be a big score at 91 3 3 4 Switzerland's Andre Rick Utley the first American to make a venture down this course will be none other than a Kray Williams from beautiful Park City Utah hard to believe that he is the elder statesman in this group at 28 years of age and his career has been so amazing he's the defending world champion at the ripe age of 28 years old at that point I had been retired from competition for five years but he's still just rocking and putting up scores on the regular switch double cork 1080 very clean skimming it along to the right here's the switch double 14 for complete spits two flips nice tail grab right there McRae's got one in the books that'll score so McCray Williams had a Park City Utah with a beautiful three jump performance here on run number one few things of last hit how he carves off that thing yeah gotta love that and he does that also on the second jump there's the left side double cork mute grabbed 1260 and he really slides off the lid take off here and what that kind of equates to on that right side sure because he doesn't get a lot of pop up words in the air not sure if you notice that but down at the bottom the way he carves off that take up I mean the first initially when freeskiing first came out guys were just going off flat based but then a gentleman by the name of Mikael desh you know came into the game and brought a type of style that was unforeseen and really changed the game and McCray Williams following suit so in 83 point three three former Kray Williams on a gym run number one remember we combined the score that you get here your best score and it'll be combined with your rail section score that's how we will find out who is the champion at the Dew Tour woodsy they call him woodsy his name is James Woods at him Great Britain Sheffield not known for big kickers and great snow but they have come to modify the dry maths or what you call the dry course and they make it work absolutely they really do and I guess his home Sheffield dry slope training area actually early on recently so James Woods you know probably thrown up some thrown some ashes around the world to basically just let the world know that you know England's here to stay those things that a good skier can literally come from anywhere and James unfortunately going down right there in the unusual scenario so woods he will step out of the binds go for a bit of a jaunt back up the hill to retrieve his one poll that came free and he will look two runs two and three great format three runs only keep your best score then there's will be a short intermission and then it'll be off to the rail section so Luke you don't have to slay both you just have to be consistently probably in the top three to be the one to give yourself a shot obviously at the podium totally you just you got to put up scores in both and sucking the knees up right there he went a little deep I mean that was truly very very large watch his axis of rotation he's gonna look at his landing right there and then try to slow things down a little bit so he kind of just sucks it up holds on to it and that right arm going out he knows he just landed off axis but in some circumstances it's not hard to imagine the James bullets what a sucked up that landing and just kept going with his run but the fact that he went down the last line really indicates that he had a little too much speed coming in to baby Todd so woods he will look two runs two and three this will be a throwaway score for him a fifteen point six seven for the pride of Great Britain so so that's how he feels about that's how he feels about that last run Tina you talked to woodsy after he collected his goods what did he think about the course in the width oh well you could tell he was really frustrated and I asked him if it was wind and he goes yeah of course it was wind you think that was me that wasn't me you know kind of half joking but half serious at the same time up until now all week they've skied without wind so to come into a competition that have even just the slightest breeze I mean it can throw you off oh no question about it look you talked about it earlier today a gust is what you really don't want consistent win not a big problem as long as it's not hurricane force but it's that gust when you leave the lip and all set in a twenty mile an hour gust hits you as you open up yeah you just can't prepare for that so we are down to the final four competitors in run number one and this is Gus Kenworthy out of Telluride Colorado his mother named him Augustus we all call him Gus Gus Kenworthy do Tour champion in both 14 and 15 putting on a great show at the Olympics in Pyeongchang and here he is out of the gate ready to hit these first three jobs remember 55 60 and 65 foot kickers right side double cork 1260 right there dragging his hand on the landing but will make the most of it continue onward speed an issue right now working to get where he needs to be there's the 12 62 laughs so gets a run to his feet not an ideal Gus Kenworthy s a little bit on the ragged side at his standards now remember Gus Kenworthy excels both in the half pipe and the slopestyle course and showing right now his aerial prowess but look I'd be itching to find out if that was a win situation or did he just overcooked that first or second jump you know looking at the flags right there I'd say that his his first jump really just might have been a situation where he was a little off on his axis of leading right there a little heavy on the tails right there – the hand could have been just a pole touch and here's the switch left side double cork 1260 your poles can-can dragged along the snow but you got to keep your hands off of the ground when you're landing I mean that will be a most certainly a deduction but if it's just your pole you're not gonna get docked too much you'll just get kind of a sloppy landing if you're bending at the waist heavily look if it's a compression situation where you land so hard in your hands come down and touch probably not as big a deal as if you need the hands down for balance that's very well set okay so Gus Kenworthy checks in with a 61 does not seem to be happy with that and I would not blame him that is not up to his standard final three competitors to take run number one as we take a look at the current standings and reira kentley leads it all with a 91 3 3 Busch in second so the Swiss came out swinging top to place and the best placed American right now currently holding down third that's where Craig Williams out of Park City and in a t-33 this is Alex hall also now the aforementioned at Park City Utah just 20 years of age a youngster left-side double cork 1260 really tough grabbing corporation right there into the switch double cork 14 gets that around now looking over the right shoulder into this final jump whipping Parvez Yap the switch right hey leave me 12 the answer to that is affirmative puts that down nicely done we're get these up in that top spot but and Alex hall flirtin with it and remember Alex Hall won the rail course the chip section of this slopestyle competition overall in the team the team select keys I mean if he can get a good score here he'll be in that situation just like you said our tale just really really tough to reach back and grab that leading and far tail hope I'm saying that right really tough craft to incorporate and then hand it out to try once again hand on that big 14 and are you kidding me seat belt Japan Travis what triple combo how does he do that I mean he's a really tall guy he's got long arms but he also has very long legs to be able to bring his leg up reach across his body with his right arm all the way down and grab the bottom of his right foot around his waist oh my first with a 94 oh my gracious the grabbing Corporation's he set himself apart yet big rotations everything about that was huge and that's that's gonna whisper some fear into the ears of those who are really ambitious about taking the top spot here because we already know his rail game is very strong he's put himself in a very good position three runs only keep your best as we move back to the top of the course the final two competitors it'll be Evan McCaffrey and then henrik carlo that of sweden will wrap things up another one of those canadian super hungry as a very very difficult run here left side double cork 1260 mu pan and really whip it off the live on that switch right double cork 14 look for another switch dub 40 fooling with a lead tail grab locking that down and and the judges response to the progressive nature of Alex hauls right grabs and then of course the back-to-back 1620s that never saw firmer get Lee yep I mean they're really answering like show me something new it would appear that's the indication that I'm getting from the judges and while Evan maquette Rhodes run was absolutely mind-blowing back-to-back switch dub for teens with the big grab that nobody's doing up top the mute pan right here watch he grabs mute with his right hand and then whoa way back behind that might not even be a mute pan that might be something of Evan mccarran's own creation left side double for 1260 gross breaks on chest for a moment manages his speed really looks like he had one of those runs that seemingly unaffected by the wind look at the flags just a bread and butter setup right there and there gets the switch right side double cork 14 unbelievable and watch the lead tail here it's the arm his right arm up just to kind of show kids to the judges the comfort that is existing within his rotation reaches back almost on the very tip of the tail he just short of the very tip judges love to see that thing pull on it her cap with the hand right on the very top of the ski there very well done no I mean no question that he had that grab throughout the entirety of his rotation big rut strong performance by Evan McCarran out of Canada look at this he joins the 90 Club 92 points 6 7 for Evan macaque ran out of Canada so he sits in second current leader Alex Hall and this is the final man to drop it'll be Henrik Harlow but look at the 90 Club three guys already there with Alex hall leading the way without 9400 Righetti who thought he threw the hammer down with 91 three not to be he is in third so you've got a two time back-to-back do Tour champion 16 and 17 and Henrik Carlo the man just skis with joy that's the best way I could describe this guy on the hill and he has been doing it for so long beautiful double flatspin twelve right there really tough jerk and a different axis to receive from a lot of the other athletes looking really solid scoop it's huge super hung out grab right there that's how he wins I mean he just makes everything look so easy and so flawless and it always has just a tight concise but very stylish look everything about his his execution take muffin Henri Carlo not the biggest guy in the world although he does look like he Shops at the big and tall stores he absolutely brings it when he hits the kicker absolutely and just a beautiful left side double flatspin 1260 safety and I love this grab right here does he reach back with the right hand nope just tees it up it's almost like half an octave grab going down right there now coming down switch beautiful switch right up and here's another look at it ten switch right double cork 1080 Evans macaron and the rest of the athletes who are taking over that top spot spinning a little bit more than that but a beautiful switch dub and in the other direction you can definitely crank things up last year we saw switch triple flat spin that could go down once again we know the man Henrick our low score drop he is a seventy one point six seven so he will look two runs two and three to try to prove that River this is only half your score the slopestyle the second half comes from the rail section and still a smile on the face of Henri Carlo of Sweden so one run is complete on the jump focus of the slopestyle competition here for the men as the blue skies are out as they have been for the last two or three days as we show you who is where and what they did it is Alex hall by virtue of a 94 on run number one follow up I have macaron Andre Rieu get laid Fabian Bosh and MacRay Williams your top five we've still got two more runs on the jump section will Henrik Harlow Gus Kenworthy be able to work their way up the top want to wait find out we'll be back to Breckenridge after this short break you're watching the Dew Tour built by Mountain Dew coming up we've got two more rounds to go here on the jump section currently it's American Alex Hall out of Park City Utah leading the way with a 94 and from the Kakarot of Canada sits in second and Andre arrogantly sits in third loop these guys have already done themselves a solid by getting in that 90 Club because whatever you do here on your three jump sections you carry over an LD half your score with the rails yeah so it's a huge contribution to your efforts that are going to come up later and I mean the guys that are up top right now Alex Hall with a 94 and the fact that he's already shown that he can get into the 90s in the jib section I mean he stands in a very very solid position yep to maybe win the 2018 due to her and Andre Rick as they switch double Misti 16 to 20 on reel and then of course you know heaven McCarran coming in with that lead tail grab on the switch dub 14 beautiful stuff I mean oh it's all just kind of coming out of nowhere with the most progressive grab and flip combinations to take the top spot the judges loved it such a challenging integration of grab and spin it's unbelievable so here we go the second of three rounds and Topman going into this thing will be Alex hall as you see fabian post going through the muscle memory think about what he needs to do and look his first run score was solid he came out swinging the first kind of drop in and the judges responded with an 88 so he's in a good neighborhood right now the upper 80s remember with the rail section still to come and this being half here scored switch left side double 14 double Japan switch double misty 12 under gently went an additional 360 right there Seidel 16 much cleaner right there for Fabian bow semana Switzerland and he has taught the podium at bigger competitions everywhere including Ike's games and how many his abilities in the air are unbelievable there's a video going around of him doing a heat Superman triple front and it is one of the most enticing things to watch it just itches crazy can be so good switch double misty to the right and here's where he reaches back locks in that grass turns his ski look he's pushing his skied looks like a rubber band ax just slam him through the entirety of that four-and-a-half spins so Fabian Bose said you've done an 88 3 3o throw that away cuz you're going to the 90 Club 92 even for Fabian Bose moves him into third place so the judges certainly responding to the offering of Fabian Bose as we go back to the top of the course member it's three jumps 55 60 and 65 feet Oscar Wester now dropping in with that 75 which he was loved to get rid of you definitely do better than what we saw in for one a little bit of a wash landing right there super small this day getting around so wow the pressure is now on to load up that score a little bit more in rubber three Luke was that a five product you landed a run of jump number one or he just missed call it on run – Jeff – you know it's hard to say maybe the replay will indicate what the answer to that question is but he was a little bit slow on kind of his off the lip off the take-off how he started this trick is there he's finishing his 900 and he's still got a whole nother flip to go he might have thought he was gonna be going a lot bigger watching he's already he's just coming around the board and he's got a whole nother flip to go dives under not enough hang time right there must've thought he was going a little bit bigger than he did or it was just a little too calm on the trick initiation which always takes place on the live of the job he'll Harley for beautiful Campbell River in British Columbia sitting on an 80 point six seven remember he was else a plate would win early on but the one certainly has died down just a little bit when we started this competition on run number one until gotta get scores on the Andes hopefully he'll add on additional action here around the twelve right there just barely at the tail and throwing that down and a great grab throughout maybe having to let go a tiny bit early went big but I think at least on his first two airs he's still just doing three twelve races right so there's other guys that are beyond and the difficulty and the rotation world but his execution is really what he's focusing on trying to see very stylish watch this beaut the way he hangs that out kind of Mac forehand style beautifully executed switch dub court 12 and way out on the nose and just pokey you see the control element there it just the judges love it they respond in a different way if you do something that's really complicated say you swung the craziest trick in the world but you weren't clean you didn't hold your grab you're not gonna see the type of score that you would hope 85 even for teal Hartley's so he does improve on run number one has in currently City in fifth place keep the Canadian theme going this is the man simply known as a BM Alex blue no Marshawn out of Quebec Canada through in a 78 so the Olympic bronze bronze medalist from the 2018 games is now on course and he's gonna come into this one Luke switch or backwards so far so good great amplitude there solid landing and boot switch double bio 1260 super solid going huge up his jump so far this time just right into the sweet spot on that landing a forward left side double bio 1260 and kind of what I mentioned in his first run is that he's taking some different approaches with the axes that he's spinning on its watch like a high dive competition everyone's doing the same trick he's he's doing some different things and he's doing them very well catching some serious air right there on that switch right double 1080 and then here's the switch double misty 1260 spun to the left great safety grab I love this trick big old meu crab rolls over the shoulders once again on the second portion the second flip in that forward double misty 1260 a double misty a really difficult trick the first person I ever saw do that was actually world skiing Invitational big air in Whistler Justin Dory and it's a tough trick it's you know big risk big reward often times it if you're short on speed pop it off the tips is always a helpful way to do it nice improvement almost a 10 10 point plus improvement for a BM out school Mr Shaun of Canada now sitting with at 88.3 Ferdinand Dahl now young man that needs to get up and go strapped with that 20 3.67 having a crash as we saw on the first run remember there's much more wind on run number one not seeming to be the case now as it has died now here the early afternoon of Breckinridge so the doll stepping up for a ball again switch 7:20 right there looks like gonna just toss this run away as well.we interesting to know what exactly went down on that first jump which compelled him to stop that intensity which we were ready to see sure throughout that run I mean it just didn't have that consistent righteous and I know you noticed he needs to announce her jigs there as I soon mentioned they wind dying down mother nature said it goes it's just just let me know who's in charge you know sometimes when the wind is blowing and it's plagued do you prior any sensitivity toward that can cause a little bit of a mental block to going on probably taking a look at the flags just switched seven probably would have been fine to do the tricks you wanted to do but and mentally it can be so tough if the wind is coming along sometimes an athlete will just say no way so Ferdinand all not feeling it there is score does improve though up to a fifty one remember this is 50% of your scores we still have to move over to the rail yard and they will get three cracks at that course as well Andre Rieu get Lee first man to dip into the 90s in the competition he threw in a ninety one point three three and look at the time we thought wow we may have just seen the winning run not so much as three other guys followed suit with 90 fours 92 92 six seven with Hall mcaren and Bosh all joining in watch this tricky throws down on the second jump the right side double cork 1260 well executed solid tail grab switch double misty 1620 unbelievable trick and hard over the left shoulder on the left side double cork 16 perfect landing feet together just comfort like he's just walking down the stairs or something I mean I can't find a comparison that really shines light on how easy he made that landing look it's flawless and here's that first right side double cork 1260 tail grab looks like he was searching now he did the grab there put it down this skis the tips of his skis not maybe a perfect crossing of the skis I'm just trying to be is judgemental is possible to try to figure out why this wouldn't somehow go up into the top spot the back-to-back 16 just amazing maybe not gapped on that tail grab which basically indicates that he needs to go all the way into the tip of that house but if a surprise there not an improvement on his first run but still in 90 so he'll who stay with the 90 1.33 and looked to run three that picture says it all beautiful day here in Breckenridge Kalos Colorado slight breeze has been blowing early in the competition here as McRae Williams gets set to drop on his second run McRae oldest competitor here at 28 years of age his first run score with an 83 point 3 3 general world-champion coming in now hard over the left shoulder double core 12 safety very clean grab the most experienced competitor Liefeld Oh fine definitely had a tailwind there full route of a push the fact that I just wanted to maybe go back to what you said talked about these guys being ready to fall correctly or at least minimize the damage yeah minimize the damage make just tiny adjustments at the last second when they feel that wind it's like a mental and muscle memory thing that can seemingly anticipate the velocity or at least experience the velocity and a split second time frame that's going to influence the way that they throw their trick off of the take off in such a way that they don't completely blow up at the bottom and land on their feet even though they're going a lot farther than they want to the flag set the table definitely rip it tailwind for sure look at this the way he slaps back you just know the impact down there and he just slows down so much he's gonna carry his head around gonna peek at that landing oh he knows it's coming but does so well with the impact of having landed basically in the valley between two Okemah the jumps so MacRay Williams gets a 14 net because a throwaway he'll sit on the end three three have one more run now you see the flags momentarily they kind of sit quietly and wait for someone to come down before they pick up Alex call Alex hall leads the way with a 94-92 67 for Canada at Macau and Fabian Bush sitting on a 92 currently in third place River this is just half of the score for the slopestyle still have to head over to the rail yard to see what they can do there for the other half of their overall score james woods now looking for something big here woodsy having issues on run number one fifteen point six seven telling Tina Dixon it was not him it was the win unfortunately for him the win looking quite mild lovely switch left side double cork 1260 that is not his natural direction of Smitty huge right side devil card 1620 now looking over the right shoulder switch dub doe his bread-and-butter trick I think he did exactly what any legendary competitor would be want to do and that's to put down a run that's going to give him a score he can build upon in the rail section very important so 50% of his score coming from this area and woodsy with a great second run here much better than his first and watch the way that he drops hard flexing his hips out just cranking every muscle in his body to swing around the additional 360 there's that grabs not lead to he grabs behind it so if you can imagine spinning to the left and reaching back with your right hand and grabbing the the heel of your right foot basically if you're in your living room just watching this event and then trying to turn the other way it just it creates this pretzel feeling within your body where your muscles are going against one another in his ability to swing all that together really amazing also his classic trick the seemingly double-jointed ankles of James Woods always astound so James Woods goes from a fifteen point six seven to an eighty seven on run number two Alex Hall is the leader with a 94 East us to take his second run is we're in the midst of the second run of three only issue today has not been the skies it has not been the course it has been a little bit of wind it has not been consistent when so hard to plan for and that's exactly what Gus Kenworthy will have to do now that having issues on his first run only picking up a 61 oh nice and proven right there on that first right-side double core 1260 great looking around here's the switch left logs the love the way he just hands that out to dry at the tail end and here's the left side devil core 1620 a popular trick in today's competition beautifully executed right there from Gus the one question maybe was on the tail grab throughout his rotation there but truly a massive improvement from what was on for one there's that right side double core 12 and watch the second half of this rotation spits harder and slows and way down on that right right-handed safety grab and just reaches up and grabs it and then just opens his body lets everything happen naturally that is comfort and comfort enjoy it's the holiday season sure gotta love that and here he cranks in add the tail grab nicely they'll definitely give them that could do with a tiny bit more amplitude on that final job but really if I know Gus Kenworthy he was just wanting to put this rug to his feet get a solid score so that he has something to build upon at the rails to be still in many ways in the competition here so well done on that he's got another run and Marley looking for a big score as four athletes have already gone into the 90s he'll go to the 80s so a 20-point improvement for Kenworthy and 81 for him on jump section number two three more competitors to take their second run here of three on a beautiful day in Breckenridge Colorado the Alex hall at McCarran and Henrik Harlow the last three to drop in Alex Hall has the honor of being the top placed athlete so far here in the first half of slope style remember the rails still to come but he is sitting beautifully on a 94 and rocking the bamboo poles just kidding a tree and really benefiting from his ability to contort his body into a variety of sensational positions to throw down extraordinary graphs 14:40 first jump and a couple cork trees always an indication that something went wrong there maybe he wanted a little bit less or a little bit more yeah so it goes like this any time an athlete's in the slopestyle competition they want to tee up say their second jump to hit it backwards they have to land their first jump backwards so that something might have gone not necessarily according to plan and just swung around the 1440 could have continued but it would appear that that was not necessarily part of the plan and what a far tail grab unless I fell before 1440 and he continued and made something up I mean he probably still would have squirt very well yes this is a throwaway for him that 42 Alex although no frown on his face he's still sitting with a 94 from run number one final two men to take their second run of three Emma Cochran currently sitting in second place gotta feel comfortable you got a 90 plus score in your back pocket and no question about that rejection coming in ha now winding it up just slamming his boots down at last 360 of this rotation there's the switch right side double 1440 down into the bottom switch to the left side dub 14 in a lot of huge Aaron Aaron holding on to an exceptional amplitude remember amp 2 is a huge part of skiing whether it's in halfpipe slope style big air any of the facets of competitive competition for free skiing the fact that he went back right there that's huge that's only gonna help double corks welcome you pan coming in weekend over that right shoulder are to tell about the crabs there here's the instant replay wraps maybe a little gargoyle grab right there which is essentially a safety and then sort of an inside crit if you will reaching down double grabbing at the very least on that right side double cork fourteen beautifully done so having the Cochran's at second offering not as good as this first at eighty nine three three so he will stay with the ninety to six and look to run number three last man to drop in will be the smiling swede henrik Harlow first run score was a seventy one point six seven loop what does he need to bring to get himself into the illustrious ninety club well he just needs to basically be Henrik Harlow he just needs to bring in some of those knows butter double corks maybe that triple that we see from him in the past the switch triple twelve lasted just needs to step it up a little bit in terms of the difficulty of his tricks beautiful double flatspin 1260 that's a great start for him there's a switch right side double ten need something big right here down to the bottom and there's the switch triple 1260 the first triple that we've seen of the day Wow I think he's going to enter the conversation with some fairly serious wind at his back that is a nice conversation to be it because his rails are not terrible either so he's going to come into this thing and hopefully join that 90 Club and then put all the pressure on the rest of the field as we make the move over the rail section I love this double flat Smitty rotation is head drops down again comes around to ten eighty one more for the twelve ten eighty so this is one area where a lot of the guys are throwing down bigger spins in their double corked rotations Harlow goes for the switch right side dub ten but then really blasts it to the moon with this switch triple 1260 mute grab that's a huge trick there's the first one speed come up around the second time and here's the third and he sneaks his tips back underneath and the landing he's like the only guy that's doing that trick so so just Shore the ninety Club in eighty nine point six seven for Henrik Harlow with one run to go Alex Hall continues to lead the way by virtue of that first run 94 for more on him let's check in with Tina oh well I just talked to him after that second run and he said I didn't mean to do that fourteen forty on the first jump that was an accident he said he just set his skis too hard and I kept rotating and then he kind of started joking around about doing a sixteen twenty because that would actually set him up better for that second jump but he thinks that first jumps not gonna be big enough for the sixteen twenty so we'll probably go back to what he was originally doing but either way Alex tall guys just looking so on point no question about it and when you have that opportunity loop to throw in a 60 when that's at your disposal yeah that's a pretty good place to be yeah not a bad environment to find herself in and I mean hats off just standing ovation to that second jump where he throws in the seat belt Japan and a switch double in c2 runs down one to go American Alex Hall is the leader with a 94 mikekim with a 92 six and Fabian most city and third with a 92 even will have those third and final run when we return to the men's ski slope style final here from beautiful Breckenridge Colorado back in beautiful Breckenridge Colorado this is the Dew Tour version 2018 Todd Harris McMahon Valentino Dixon and we are down to the third and final runs in the men's of slopestyle competition as we focus our attention on the jumps right now American Alex Hall leads the way with a 94 and mckerrod sits in second 92673 Bebo's in third but let's not forget folks this is only half the show this is only half the sandwich because we still have to make the jump over the rail features and so a lot of guys still like attention especially when you could jump like this yeah I mean this gentleman Andreea Kelly is a little bit out of his mind then Evan McCarran comes through and he's swinging massive tricks back-to-back switch to switch for teens and then Henrik Harlow comes into the equation from way back in the back with a switch triple 1260 a little porn bacon maybe to that second Jeff we might be able to see him really get into a spot that's a little bit closer to the top Alex Hall holding it down with that particular trick added to the other mind-bendingly challenging maneuvers he's accomplished with us currently sitting in third place to Switzerland penny in motion with a 92 and this is where you go FX is a sizzle you bring the sizzle to this third and final run because after this whatever score you have your best score that will be 50% of your overall right there on that first one additional amplitude points switch right side double misty 1260 and down into the bottom once again whipping hard and a great leading they're just jumping definitely better than his first run landing is it better than 92 that he's sitting on right now you know what it's it's really hard to say because he went bigger on his first jump which is always gonna be great all of the tricks were seemingly very much locked in at that point there's a look at that first jump carries it down to the third line folds a little at the waist but that's just view to the impact of going so massive switch right side double cork 1260 the fact that he's doing that trick to the right very challenging let's look at the grab here watch his right hand oh yeah right on the tip of the tail driving with his grab holding onto it for such a long time a super solid landing man if that's that's gotta be an improvement and it is indeed and 93 three so famiiy most jumps into second place [Applause] and now he could focus his attention on the rails and what a great situation he finds himself with a 93 3 Oscar Wester now looks and says wow I gotta follow that well he's in a world of hurt right now figuratively speaking because he's got a 75 on the weekend if he has to carry a 75 into the rail section he's gonna need a monster score to even be in the conversation he's got profound skills he just needs to put it all together has been struggling a little bit with the wind with the speed today drops hits you what played to prior the switch right side double cork 12 this comes around nicely right double cork 1440 out of the switch double Misti 12 very very clean run definitely his best so far I think he'll be throwing away that 75 and pursuing something a little closer to the 80 between 80 and 90 I don't think he's gonna break into the 90s with that particular run but definitely good to see him throw one down really splayed and beginning of that but a good landing holding on to it coming into the switch double misty 1260 was such a late second flip but gets it around this time and then hard over the right shoulder into the double 44 complete spins two flips let's look at this grab here row yeah right up on the tip of the tail with that left hand way to flip out of it very nice very good run give it a lot of thought to this third and final run for Oskar fester as the score has yet to drop look I got actually this question while we have a moment the same equipment that their ski on here will they be carrying that same gear over to the rail section most likely some of the athletes might switch up skis if they have the exact same thing but most likely eighty-seven point six seven so Oscar Wester into seventh place which is hard to believe a seventh place with an 87 yeah that's that's wow that just really shines light on how wild the day has been weather-wise the day has been absolutely beautiful hair with a little bit of wind but the wind has calmed down by virtue of looking at those red flags there on the kicker those kickers of year wandering 55 60 and 65 feet look they are traveling much further than that when you look at the point of takeoff to where they are actually landing in the sweet spot a steel Harley of Canada looks to his third and final run right now he is sitting on a best score of 85 just absolutely crazy competition to see that top score which is half of we're all support the athletes being a 94 by Alex hall till Harley right side double cork 12 going big kind of opening up at the last minute but not going to be happy with that an eighth monstrosity of a switch 540 right there into the left side five landing gear down solving the tail grab something fun to watch teal Harley when just playing around often times make me makes me wish personally I was just a little bit better skier amazing stuff very smooth and just a little too big on that first challenge so he will have to hold on to the 85 that he got on run number two and now his attention like those before him will they'll be focused on the rails going into this jump a little too much speed the right side dub cork has to open up and slow things down a little bit right there with that well-timed straddle and this switch five it's kind of what I'm talking about just zero body movement in the air everything is just occurring it's miracle of physics it's just naturally happening so the 40's a throw away the 85 is what he takes and that has him currently in ninth place some folks feeling adventurous today here in Breckenridge Colorado as they make their way in search of a fresh track that certainly went in the case early this week when Mother Nature dropped about six inches of fresh on a Wednesday night but since then it has been Bluebird here in Breckenridge as the Dew Tour has come back to town you are now looking at Howard Guillot marshawn of Canada I switch right side double very solid grab was switched triple 1260 right there below you Marshawn definitely picking things up and there's the pole double misty 12 he's so much heat to his run in the midsection but Falls his easier truth the one he had done countless times today with seemingly little effort Oh only you to land at that we'd get to see if he put up big numbers he may have left a huge divot on the landing the area that third and final job as he unbuckles make sure everything's okay and it's it's smart he just a bit my gracious the switch triple coming yeah the only other guy we've seen throw triple today was hander Carlo and here's the first item of business switch right side double Rodeo 10 and here's the second there's one flip here's the second comes around and he goes from third watch landing boom done and coming in he's like yes okay I got all the steam that I could possibly need that's what I was going for he knew he wanted to increase his score switch triple Wow on a 60 foot table top him and probably flying upwards of 90 feet from takeoff to his landing and just a tiny bit short on this forward double misty 12 locks in the grab sees the landing let's go sucks the knees up but just short when about I would say yeah beyond 90 feet on that first Jeff but this last job or hate it like that 65 foot Martin he almost catches what we call the knuckle which is just the end of that flat portion no you carried about five feet more beyond that that's just not enough not a fast enough rotation with the speed that he had so in 88 three three for a BM how it's below Marshawn of Canada and now he is focused swole squarely on the rail section Fernand all thinking about what he needs to do he needs a big score score to beat is at 94 American Alex Hall laid that down on run number one Nadal has come a mulches day a little bit of a struggle so far speed and the like hopefully going together here not his day in the jobs and slid into landing that kind of an indication of how spectacular the park builders are out here at Breckenridge when you hit this what we call the sweet spot of the landing there's almost not even a sound you don't even the trajectory will compress up with the angle of the landing perfectly aundrea Jet Li has certainly been consistent as we take a look at the current standings Alex Hall leading still with that 94 that came in round number one Fabien Busch at McCarran in the 90 Club as is this man Andre Rick gently and Luke I thought he was underscored a bit on run number two they only keep a 90 point three three is best score so far coming run number one with a 91 33 some of the deductions mind bent might have been excuse me on this first jump scrap was a little bit loose you're talking about sports in the 90s has really got to be a tight overall impression that trick I just can't get enough the switch double it misty 1620 he just stops it beautiful left side dub 16 as well down at the bottom so one big right side trick up top and then the two left side 1620s one backwards one forwards with grabs locked in throughout here's that person let's look at the grab here which is back for the tail see kind of his toe fees the way crosses he's just crossing the tips of his skis as opposed to really locking in any massive crosses sometimes that can look a little bit loose to the judges but this right here holding that safety grab till he nearly lands on his fingers has to get that hand out of the way switch double missed e60 hard over left shoulder for the second 16 24 and a half spins let's take a look at that right hand as it reaches back not an ideal grab right there and I hate to even say that because of the complexity of the rotations in hand but those crabs gotta be locked in judges want to see it on the tip of the tail the most consistent skier possibly throughout the day and improvement for it deadly as he goes to a 92 know if he's thrilled with that but he's had a 91 a 90 and now in 92 as we get Lee will certainly be in the conversation as we get to the jib section which is coming up shortly but it's still Alex hall Luke with a 94 but look at all those guys in the 90s this is a member that 50% of their overall score so if you carry anything in the 90s you are definitely in running not only for the podium but for the win no question about it I mean Alex Hall has poised himself perfectly moving into the rail section especially after having one with the highest score in the rails during the team event I mean this guy yep he could be our dude Tour champion this is gonna be unbelievable speaking world champion for crane Williams out of Park City Utah now dropping in McRae having issues on jump number two but his first one was solid he needs something big though he needs to be in that 88 Club he's right now he's sitting on an 83 3 did that jump again since he went too big it goes massive again oh no McRae lays it out and that seemed doomed as soon as he got done with that second jump just seemed like the landing wasn't right or the speed just wasn't his liking well he kind of skimmed it he sort of rolls off his edges off that second kicker and just went gigantic so deep pulled everything together but lost a lot of speed coming into the file jump with that tail grab though and just sit back and enjoy the grace of McRae Williams he's always locking in the best grabs is such a solid skier so fun to watch current world champion just a delight unfortunately the last two runs for him today didn't go his way down to the final five competitors here in the jump portion of the slopestyle competition here in Breckenridge Colorado this is James Woods he's currently in eighth place with an 87 but that could all go away merits three months only the best score counts speaking of best scores it's American Alex Hall who has that best score with a 94 and River he hasn't even taken his third and final jump as of yet but succumbing it backwards hard over the shoulder switch double core 1260 blocks it in now over the right this natural direction of spinning biggle dubs sixteen gorgeous stuff right there as he comes into the bottle should switch dub octo grab that was definitely better than his prior run which scored in 87 everything about that was just clean I loved how big he went on those jumps and how he maintained his composure despite no doubt experiencing some fairly massive impacts beautiful stuff love watching James speak there's that safety grab as it comes around on the switch left double cork 1260 and watch you've just cranked over the right shoulder locking in that tail grab not quite once again on the very tip of the tail but definitely held to grab throughout the entirety of the rotation damps his head down on that right side double cork 1080 octo watch this grab right hand to the tail left hand to the nose of the other and then he buckles his ankles together just contorts everything that grab invented by a gentleman out of Quebec Charles does an 88 for James Wood so it was a slight improvement as he goes into seventh place Gus Kenworthy out of Telluride Colorado set to drop in on his third and final offering here Kenward he brought a 61 and an 81 he needs to be in that 90 category and if you look to his rail abilities Luke where do you think Gus needs to be as far as a score to have himself in the running to take the title I mean high eighties ia decide it would be amazing they could get into the 90s but his rail skills certainly are very strong falling out just at the right time beautiful landing there on the right side Dumbledore can switch left sides of 12 nicely done will he spin the 16 here yes Kenworthy matching many of the athletes who were finding themselves in the top 5 with that 16 20 that's uh and that is such a tough trick TJ Schiller an individual the bigger competition who took gold medal with that very trick and just went from a 1262 1440 to a 16 that's constantly evolving and progressing sport beautiful grab right there left-handed mute grab with Gus Kenworthy on the switch right side dub 10 and then the switch left dub 12 love the way he spins this trick it comes around there's the 900 and then he falls from the sky in a way that just breeds general athleticism make me hell he can slow everything down and spot that landing and just put the gear down and just ski way so smoothly oh yes looks like he got the grab on the second try there and did hold it for a substantial amount of time so it is an improvement for Kenworthy it's an 84 3 3 so that is the score he will take to the rail section of the slopestyle course Alex Hall was city very happy in the catbird seat so to speak with a 94 and now there's four guys all within two points of his 94 so how it's all knowing then you'd love to give himself a little more breathing room than just less than a point the second place in Fabien Busch how would you rate his rail features for Alex Hall how is he gonna fare over there sensational again I encourage anyone who is at home to attempt this Mex crab just sitting and try to reach around your body with your right hand and grab the bottom of your right foot over your left leg grab the bottom of your right foot he just threw that down in that last trick in boom politics to his feet a little bit short maybe on the rotation probably not going to increase his very ample 94 but he just he just got crab combinations within the big tricks that are quite nuts and you see if that landing on the third and final jump he caught that left hand and mother nature was not behind as he dropped out of the sky full impact goes for the far tail Farley tail right there on the left side double cork 1260 beautiful landing and here's where he goes watch this right hand reaches around his body and grabs the bottom of his right foot I mean he's so contorted in the air I just tried to do that city kids yes seriously hard I mean it's like a yoga position that he just decidedly reaches around and grabs it that's his right hand to right foot who does that nobody does that that's just not something that you see it's it's new it's a it's a seatbelt Japan grabbing it's extraordinarily challenging not to mention the fact that he's doing it in the midst of a switch double so he will hold on to run number 194 current leader in the jump portion of the slopestyle competition final two competitors set to drop in it'll be first evan macaque current and then Henrik Harlow will wrap things up here on the jump features remember these jumps 55 60 and 65 feet with these athletes carried easily 90 feet in distance so consistent right there pardon me if I jinxed him but took it real deep fortunately he's got a solid score right now I feel like Todd at this point if you're out there and then raised and you've got four athletes that are you're sitting in a beautiful position we could see a huge shake-up in the rail section because rails are so challenging so difficult and there's there's a lot of them there's four different sections where the athletes have to really get complex very technical and doing that routinely is a pretty tough deal here's that switch left side excuse me right side double 14 a little bit of cat out the window there at the ends he falls to the ground below it's kids on just rolls off his edges switch right side double 1440 gargoyle and bam to the depths it all comes down to this as we take a look at the current standings Alex hall will either be in first and or second heading over to the rail section because there's one competitor go and that's Henrik Carlo the man on your screen right now set to drop in Harlow currently sitting in fifth place just outside of the 90 with an eighty nine point six second seven we remind you this is only half of your slopestyle score whatever you take here this is half of what you get and then the rails around that switch right side not enough speed or just biting up a little more I can chill I think you're absolutely right I think it's very safe to say that there was a speed issue coming in right there and you know it's it's a balance basically what an athlete takes off the jump between how quickly they're going to initiate their trick how fast they're gonna spin and flip in order to get back to their feet and the amount of speed that they have you have to make that judgment right at the tail end here is gonna take a peek sucks the knees way up to try to get that around and had he caught the outside edges that could have been troublesome buds and her Carlo dealing very well with that misfortune coming around right there and just the inside tail of that right ski catching a little bit but he looks to be totally fine Henrik making his way to the bottom this is a throwaway score of 20 so he goes to the rail features now with an eighty nine point six seven which is half his score as we sit it down to Tina who is with her Carlo yeah the defending champion you still have that score 89 in the 89th 50% of the score is jumps overall what's your assessment of what your older to do up here what what about is sorry yeah what's your thoughts on your score and what you were able to do I'm very stoked in my run I think I got a little bit of a low score for it cuz I think it was like the only triple and the only double rodeo and I went big and I grabbed in there I think just a little bit of a low score but eight or nine should be good enough to do a little bit better on the rails hopefully the judges give me a little extra there instead yeah I mean an 89 is a great score heading into their rounds what are your thoughts on that and how are you feeling we've seen you in that Park already and we know you can ride that stuff yeah it's it is what it is I'm just gonna go with it and gonna I would have liked to be in the 90s from the jumps but that's not the case this time so I'm gonna have to go a little extra hard on the rails that's scary you guys henrik carlo getting little subtle campaigning into the judges for a little extra love here in the Rocky Mountains as he checks in and fifth place with an 89 6-7 after the jump features we take a look at the standings after three runs it is Alex Hall he threw it dad on run number 194 baby Bush another 93 McCarron in the 90 club with a 92 6-7 and Andre were gently with a 92 Henrik on the outside looking in as tina pointed out fifty percent of your score comes from this jump section and got four athletes in the 90s and Ricardo just outside that with an eighty nine point six seven Alex believed Marshawn with an 88 and on it goes this is fabian bose the first man to drop in here on the jib features he will get three cracks at this course currently sitting on a ninety three point three that will be combined with whatever he can do the best run of three here in the rail yard so here we go Luke it is all about the to act play and here comes act number two Shane coming out a little bit switch right side 270 pretzel 450 out so the first pretzel right there very difficult stuff to 70s on comes off the rail a little bit early still able to land backwards off that rail switches his stance to the 450 on sucks the tails up over the tail of that donkey style rail and failure boat on the good news is he has two more cracks at at overall oppression certainly a thing who did you see enough there that that would be a run you think he'd want to hold on to or is that gonna be a throwaway no that's gonna be a throwaway for sure that just the fact that he came off of the second rail a little bit early would be enough to throw it away even if everything else had been perfect but he had a mistake on the final rail as well so excuse me I called that a 270 on he hops right foot forward and a back swap occurs he turns a quick 180 swings his tips over the rail but does come off a little bit early and an opportunity right there on the Knoll to kind of reset for a lot of these athletes here's the 450 on and he sucks his tails I've just up over that last kink in the rail and does not fleet the entirety of that rail as well kind of a shotgun double bar right there and the 270 on to nothingness on the tail left so replay certainly does not lie as the judges see all of that and now they'll put pen to paper and it'll be a 47 3 3 so that definitely has to be a throwaway for him because big scores are in the making here as we make our way back to the top of the course there you see the Sun beginning is set and you talked on it the shadows could be an issue a lot of these athletes can just change the lenses and their goggles to have something a little bit brighter a little bit closer to clear to be able to see well switch 180 on right foot forward to 450 out front side 4 here's the right side 270 pretzel 270 very clean spinning both directions so far nice big hand drag inverted 360 up and over the knoll lipslide 452 pretzel 270 so far so good big switch to seven to four out solid stuff right there from the sweet oscul western bring a lot of numbers that you during that Luke you're basically referred to the rotations that they're bringing as they enter the rail and when they exit that's exactly right – sexi is basically just 90 degrees short of a 360 and so the athlete will land sideways he does a 180 on there and swings a what's called a 450 out right there so that's 90 degrees beyond a 360 and there's the right side 270 stops his momentum while he spins on and the way he spins off are different he has to actually edge on the rail and metal-to-metal very slippery there and a really really difficult maneuver to perform and here's the continuing 450 right there for Oscar Wester out of a backwards 270 very clear on this should be a decent mark for Beauty so there you see the combo of what he didn't jump they 167 0.67 now B's combo school just a beautiful day in Breckenridge Colorado as we've made them move over to the jib features here for the second half of the men's slopestyle final oscar Wester has the mark to beat right now he laid down an 80 on his opening Ron teal Harley now with an 85 carried over from his job again it's 50% of your score front swap front for fifty out we'd suffer till Harley transfers one rail to the other switch the nose butter right there to 540 nice 450 on hard way to do that nice 272 450 outs clean stuff for the man who took fifth in Pyeongchang at the Olympic Games its slope style typical story for him started skiing in six years fish began jumping shortly after and the rest is history great right side 450 here lamps nicely on the rail catches the inside of it just pops off switch comes in switch left side 270 and then just continue spinning the same direction for the 450 out considerably easier than stopping his rotation and spinning another direction there's a barrel there and some of the athletes will be tapping that barrel most likely with their tails or the noses of their skis look for that four extra points Alex blue Lamar Sean of Canada jumped section he got an 88 three three looks to build upon that that's half his score baby am now from Canada dropping in Luke you've talked a lot of these athletes are they favorably looking at this course and the way the slopestyle thing is set up that you do half that half would they rather go back to the traditional three rails three jumps I think they're absolutely loving what they've got going down it huge trick up top for a BMX so far so good switch tails 270 pretzel 450 out really tough tricks up top definitely so far the best and most technical run that we've seen catches the donkey and pops up into a 450 out there lay down a burner a lot going on for that run for the Canadian not only did he catch the donkey but there was a lot of spinning in the ladies were near flawless oh my gracious he hops 180 right here switch 270 tails 272 backslide hops off switch landing one footed on that rail and then he comes in here and this is the hard way to do a switch to seven switch tails 270 pretzel 450 out there's no room to spin that much off of that rail but ABM makes it look so easy double hand dragging on that inverted 360 and down into this section four fifties on to the double barrel and that key just wants to kill you it wants to stick you and he just pushes beyond it flawlessly switch to 70 on pretzel for 50 out that is extraordinary that was a beautiful run now it's below Marshawn with the best score so far and the chip features an 87 point 3 3 so a nice combo score for him and he still has two more runs [Applause] Ferdinand Dahl had his issues Lukas top scored the jump sections up 51 so even if he got a hundred in the rail yard he's only going to be at a 151 I think he's just gonna enjoy himself out here and I slide to front sloppy very clean on a switch 540 no all areas just surely for laughs it's just for it's just for fun right there you can just pop a little something at one foot switch on back slide the switch super clean very very tough to do so Ferdinand L possibly with all the pressure often because of his performance in the jump section wasn't really up to par he can as looks that just come out of here and have a little fun this is a great transfer from one rail to the other front swap and then front side to says yeah there's so much that could go wrong there there's a yeah and not to mention how slippery the surface of that rail is switch on right foot forward but back slides on that left foot all the way down to which Ferdinand all just with an opportunity to really just show his fans excuse me sir it all checks in with a sixty point three three so there you see the combo the probably he's got saddled that 5101 eleven is his combo score right now all right this is where it gets serious you start giving to the athletes with a 90 from the jumps Andre are gently City lending 92 coming over from the choke section this guy knows a thing or two about rails as fronts go up from the box to the rail pretzel or frontside 450 out oh yes indeed looking very very good super technical sitting on that ninety coming in switch right side 272 630 pretzeling out cute spin on the way out the first six and we've seen it oh yeah yet again the 630 out the tail edge by audrey raggedly that was a very aggressive undertaking you the rails and I feel compelled to comment on the fact that there's so much happening there there's so many big tricks and it's so easy to jump on a rail and just be a little off and not be able to do those tricks be able to put a run like that all together top to bottom truly amazing here there's this breath swap front for 50 out and you just gonna hop 270 on front swap for 50 so that's almost a 360 and then he does a 180 while on the rail and then the 450 I oh so I mean that's that that's just a tremendous amount of spinning the same place on the rail difficult stuff to do to be able to get the 450 out when there's really not a lot of air time they're also really tough so it's left side 270 on 630 out continuing six he also swung a big 630 out of the donkey so very very clean run a lot of intensity much like his jumper at the back to back to 16 and the a back to back six 30s off the rail down here at the bottom of the jib section so Andre were gently waiting for his score to drop may a beautiful run through the jib section that couples with what he did in the jump section should give him a pretty solid scored 84 6-7 so there you see it a 176 point six seven for a gently and two more runs to go McRae Williams best offering over the jump section was an 83 3 so he has got that for 50% of his score how do you think what Cray will fare about this very intricate rail section I think he'll do well and if that's any indication of what's to come we're in for it switch 180 on to set deep very clean right side 274 50 out continuing for this big inverted three seemingly the stock in trade for a lot of these athletes are you kidding me beautiful trout Sean on that transfer back swapping the gap such a tough thing to do right there that is a very dangerous high risk high reward type of trick the easy up low transfer from rail to rail is one thing but when you throw a 360 rotation we gotta worry about tips and Tails getting too hung up and he has no issues no issues here's the right side 270 on and swings the 450 out really clean great looking landing and what just comes on back swap transfer out onto his tips nice looking 270 out super clean great speed here and this really is just it's it's a speed dance that you've got to perform right there you've got to lay it perfectly on that rail these guys just they know everything about this course doing so well and beautifully executed once again MacRay Williams putting down a solid run it would say we're gonna end up mid-80s there there it is 81 baby the law judge is holding back a little bit 81 3 3 from McRae Williams boy the fans taking in the Dew Tour here at the bass village at breckenridge colorado james woods now set to go on his first run through the jib he is sitting on breathing some school jumps in Amite Luke looking at building one at house woodsy rail program strong to quite strong switch to 70 on and onto the rail that excuse me the wall ride that is saw it and they had a good please sir utilize different parts of the course gives the judges something else to judge switch tails for fifty right therefore James would looking really good and then hops up onto the rainbow rail right side 270 taking it down along that a great first run for woods James was that a great grit 26 years of age the first athlete to utilize that wall ride we've seen so far here and run number one it'd be interesting to see everyone using that little loaf that they've all kind of thrown a little inverted 360 on and everyone's making that the trick of the day here he is one more time so switch 180 on to the wall 180 off nice and clean we remember just a couple years ago Gus Kenworthy coming into the jib section hopping way up onto the wall ride and kind of separating himself from the rest of the pack in that way beautiful switch tails 450 right there super tough trick and James was making it look easy here's the right side 270 on I think he's probably gonna want to pretzel out of that we'll see if he gets it next time just the footing that he had when he landed on the rainbow bar looked like he was looking to change some directions 73 3 for James Woods morning if the judges are not entertained might have to bring something a little extra for runs 2 & 3 we talked about the visuals the Sun beginning to sit Gus Kenworthy making a swap of goggles as Luke pointed out going for more high visibility high resolution lens switch 270 360 swap back to 70 super tough trick to kick things up probably matching our current leader with that Alex Billiam our shot ice looking transfer Gus super point so far with really difficult maneuvers Oh getting these sneaks the 450 onto a rail that while I stand next to it towers over my head showed that he's the runt he has in mind pulsar ones biggest scores love this switch 270 to 360 switch up back to 70 on landing I mean compared with Alex billion Marshawn that's probably the toughest trick that we've seen so far and 450 on pretzel 270 I mean sneaking your way by that cake and he sucks his legs up to contact that your speed has to be perfect on that rail if you come in a little too fast you're gonna just fly up all the way over to think that he got high on the rail when he made this contact is super impressive 64 for Kenworthy and now you look at the man who had the best jump score Alex Hall out of Park City Utah with a 94 so now virtually in first place depending on what he does here in the rail sections does he play conservative early ort like the jumps does he go out just slay on the first truck and this is starting to look a little bit like what we saw in the team event switch on Oh switch back swap 270 really pleased looking good and this is that what we were talking about the combos these combinations of big tricks just a big transfer right there come again switch on so the mountain Dew cooler gets a cameo appearance on Alex hauls run and he makes his way through here this says this has so much going on you almost have to see the whole thing in slow-mo just to appreciate what he did yeah so switch 180 on hops on right foot forward back swap 270 and he hops on here little switch up bag swap just continues to dance on these rails and here comes the transfer hops on the Kray Williams did a back swap so he switched his body position completely that's considerably more difficult than what we saw from Alex hall there but watch the tales of his skis Oh catches the bound do cooler that barrel nicely played i'm sanna gets him right the tale of his rage gate boom gets it earned himself can of jus a score of 75 3 3 so he's a little lower than he was certainly on the jumps as he slides into fifth place as we move on to the final two competitors and run number one here in the gym features asthma kakoton and Henrik are low we wrap things up for run one prepare thyself the Decorah very legitimate very technical skier both in the jumps and in the rails here we go inside to 70s up onto the top of the wall ride 270 down now popping to switch coming into this second to last section switch right side 270 pretzel 270 out gets a little bit out on his toes but holds onto it right foot forward transferring back to out with Katherine putting gonna ride her use of the wall ride is home so I mean that's just huge guys the judges to not only hit something to hardly anyone's touching but you send it all the way to the top of that with a high-risk trick and he's dusting off snow on the top of that thing I mean it hasn't been touched have another look huge right side 270 all the way up to the top as we take another look look at it just fresh these tips of his toes excuse me baby that wasn't just a little on the boots and then the frontside 270 out that's big that's rich you gotta love that but the fill piece of material switch right side 270 bretzel to 70 maybe came off a little bit early right there but definitely got the trick there's the transfer way out on the tail slide transfers over back 270 out very clean so using that almost everything in his disposal look at this score 890 Trevor macaque that's what 92 do it Henrik Harlow the last man to drop in will see what he could do we know at how talented he is on Rails or 50 on pretzel to 70s is stopping his momentum cleanly making his way out switch tails to switch tails on excuse me 270 out whips around a little butter right there right side 450 super clean switch out now coming down into the bottom here comes the switch 270 continuing for solid run lost a little bit of that characteristic cleanliness through the midsection background switch tails over on that on that second rail feeling pretty good about that first run of three in the jib sections if Tina's been on that second feature we saw him go for a safety grab while rocking along there and this M maybe reaches down for something as he dismounts but very blind approach to the rail super tough stuff to do right there and then a frontside 270 out we got a little bit flung right there hopefully judges don't hold that against him right side 450 on it just beautiful charisma throughout and there's the 450 probably could maybe pick up the intensity a little bit on this final feature if Harlow wants to bounce up into those 90s and maybe not I've been wrong before the first run to the chip section of the slopestyle final we take a look at the standings after one run and the combos to the right it's Evan McCarran now in control the board with at 182 67 Henrik Harlow Andreea gently Alex below marshawn and Alex Hall now bumpy down to fifth place we've got two more runs to the jib section we will have that when we return to beautiful Breckenridge Colorado you're watching the Dew Tour built by Mountain Dew what a showing run number one in the jib course and the boys came out swinging for the fences they absolutely did Alex will you Marshawn coming in hot that was what we just witnessed there and then a gentleman by the name of Evan McKenna the Canadiens firing out here and a henrik carlo look at this transfer right side 450 on to the tail end of a rail that's very difficult to hit the speed that you have coming into that has to be absolutely perfect Harlow puts down takes over the top spot in this portion of the event right go on Kendrick Arlo hitting a 92 what a move for him as he goes all the way up in his second place so remember your jumps is 50% of your score this is the second half of your score enter Carlos simply did himself a solid by getting that 92 so only two men into the 90 Club in the rail section Henrik carlo with a 92 and Mac Akron with the 90 as you look at the full standings still a lot of work to be done and the judges now I think feeling that they've given out the appropriate numbers but I think the athletes Luke are probably gonna start saying okay that box ride they really like that absolutely and as Tina was saying Fabian Busch on course for his second run coming in as an alternate to this event typically a big-air enthusiast more of a chill I visit the rail sections routinely and things not voting – well so far here in round number two nice Rocky right excuse me left side 450 that was an attention what's the part of the program well if it was I'm pretty cool maybe the bow struggling with his first two runs look at this double barrel rail nice surface area to land upon by comparison 450 on just sucking everything up on that last cake landing backwards switch 270 on and look at maybe for a transfer but swinging Oh gracious that's where that ski just went buck wild Oscar fester now set to drop in mark to beat in the rail so 92 who also has got a bit of work to do trying to catch up with inter carnival Jemma Cochran switch 180 on lipslide to 270 out no issues and laying up and drag right 360 what's that top I look like Oscar got a little lost like he wasn't sure what he wanted to do that before I knew it the course passed it by and switch on for 50 out right here and so Western he left it for his third run yet the job Jim maybe he's gonna maintain that rather dangerous strategy here at gypsy love this 450 though nice lipslide for back to 70 out super clean for Western younger brother of Jakob Western man who is very influential and the sport of free skiing alongside Swede you know listen to individuals who really work to bring about all rotations in the double flip realm that would see him till Harley now set to drop in on his second run in the chip section of 69 33 on run number one but boy as the Barban race with Henrik our low ebb McCallum both going to the 90s hard over the top scorer at night to you and it's all about combos just 50% of your overall school and Harley so we're gonna frontside 450 a big switch up to 70 super 20 front swap trot – there's the right side for 58 nice ingredients that Henrik Carlo used to climb to the top of the leaderboard but unfortunately Harley a little backs even beat contact look a great illustration of just how slick those rails are I mean those things there's no grip there's no traction in those bad boys story I like to use the metaphor that it's like running at top speed and then jumping onto a stationary skateboard it wants to slip out from under you you have to be super balanced nice big swap frontside 270 out here's that 450 sneaks his knees up to get past that cake but just a little bit to backseat head in that situation that skateboards gonna fly across the parking lot it's it's gone see his right foot scoots in taps the inside of his left ankle and everything's gone from there so the second run now for Alex below Marshawn you saw what he did in the jumps in 88 3 3 not a bad opening score for him on run number one to the rails and 87 3 3 but since then Henner carload ever macaque gonna bolt gone into the 90s with a 92 and 93 well my opinion is probably worth what you paid for it but I thought he'd have probably the most challenging run that we saw through the rails 180 on switch to sub need a backslide right there now switch gills over 270 pretzel 450 piece or two tricks alone really really tough there's like new proof on things that get himself up into the 90s 450 on myndy out oh he's got one more chance Wow so complex such a tough run hopefully the judges will respond to affectionately after his third and final round his foot to his feet so he gets off the rails here Luke what went wrong was just the just the lane of the balance situation he's got to take his eyes completely off that rail and he lands a little bit on his heels and then we touches that cake it only really affects his left foot so if you can imagine just getting sprung up on one foot but not the other it's gonna change where your body position is in the air Ferdinand dog coming in as well so you see the shadow start to keep us their way across the course here I don't that's the issue right now but a lot of these athletes it's been a long day for them remember they had the first half of the competition taking place over the jump features and now here they are rails towards the end of the day the fans certainly are not leaving endurance whenever they're not doing one competition there for the next so through all of this in one day great crowd on hand here in Breckenridge Colorado the 11th year that the two tour has made its way here with the best skiers and snowboarders in the world making their way to the Colorado Rockies we're in the second run of three a jib section of the slopestyle competition a look at the current standings shows that Henry Carlo jumping way up there of a virtue of a 92 on his first run of the jibs but it's all about combo this is only 50 percent of your score atma Cochran the current leader with 182 0.67 on grammar Henley had a huge jump scored here he is now trying to combo up in the rails get another big score the 50% he will find himself it's not in first place live coding he is so wildly consistent that front swap to floor out and then the 270 front swap for just kids assistant Li crushing these tricks are very very hard to do switch to 70 on pretzel 630 out here's the switch left to 1700 doesn't quite get the grip scuse me on the rail that is needed – and swings for all he's worth but it's not at the Simon's point essentially is a rotation who ends up down so really make that as just throw away score right now he's sitting on an 84 6 7 love this right here 270 on front swap back 450 off of that rail talk about making the most of a small piece of metal there's the switch 270 on any stops his rotation spins the opposite direction that's 630 out that's almost a 720 a trick which you know few people maybe 2% of the world to do on skis and swing to 6:30 wanted it only gets the 450 and not what he was looking for there he'll have a third run to try to get back up down to the final six competitors and run number two Park City's McRae Williams set to go on a run at number two his jump Porsche was an 83 so he's got some work to do if he wants to get himself to contention in the top three out on the tips when he came around on that 271 a teeing in onto that box and spinning to the right on that second 270 but no such and that's not even storing features but pray Williams caches and hooks up the tips of his skis is he's trying to rotate around yeah looking for a nose butter 720 getting off axes just for fun but I would say that he was real willing to kind of throw caution to the wind Yeah right there Todd mostly because he didn't have that part of his trick in the second feature he there right side 270 on probably wanted to spins out of that like he didn't record with one but let's do them this time so he just swung a nose butter 720 trying to get the tips around right here but all stuck and stomped and down the hill he rolls so MacRay Williams now looking to the third and final run James Woods now set to drop in he had a very creative run early his first run gave him a 73 3 but I don't know if the judges responded really the way we thought they would because he took a different course tried to show him something different indeed we'll see if he switches things up a little bit early it's great that he's utilizing the wall ride because it's a standout feature it's a little bit different Evan McCarran benefit a lot from utilizing that feature coming in switch we'll see if he takes it up a little bit higher on the wall right he does switch 180 on 180 off I'm gonna switch to this next feature switch 450 cleaning that rail such a difficult transfer to make nicely done by J's flip up on and a 450 definitely gonna see the proof adhere just based on what we just witnessed on a final feature he's made a mistake on that you can rub up on blocks of it is that run to the tune of a 90 to the top score show for binary oh yeah it's time to say it really is gonna come down to what the judges think about everything else which 270 parental 270 out some of the athletes doing a little more technical stuff right there and then pops in its how they feel about this yeah are they going to enjoy that transfer of his body position as he comes in on the 180 to the wall ride and this just I mean one of the most phenomenal tricks of the day switch 450 just scales over super top look at the placement and just having to swing his tips to keep his skis clear that high point on the rail and landing so perfectly on it into this right side 270 on beautifully hop side there's the 450 out beautiful landing so James Woods with a great second run the score coming in now much better than 83 6 7 so this combo score now a 171 67 for Great Britain's James Woods shadows being cast across the jib section of this a slopestyle course the current standings right now it is Emma Cochran Hendrik Carlo and aundrea gently holding down the podium positions but a lot of skiing still to go and this man Gus Kenworthy he's an Olympian he's a trailblazer he has done so much in the world of free skiing here he is now trying to lay down something big and we're the in a 64 on his first go splitting his time these days between Los Angeles in New York just trouble boats and that's one of those things that surprise does not happen more often in this man with the tricks these guys are throwing down it's so difficult to link trick to this magnitude together oh that was hot and had he done that in rut number one you would had a higher score did it just not quite as clean so you will apply some pressure to that third and final Kenworthy probably not gonna improve upon what he did on run number one so he is stuck with that 64 for the time being but his Luke said one more run to go for him switch to 70 on pretzel 360 and then that back to 70 out he just he comes on everything's looking good at this point he just carries down the rail pretty far in just a little to the right of the optimal landing position and he bounces off his toes swings the trick around but couldn't quite hold on to it so it'll come down to the third and final run for Gus Kenworthy try to fight himself on to the podium here the men's slope style final final three competitors on run number two Alex Hall came into the jib portion with a 94 is in first place after jumped now he finds himself in eighth place so it's go time young man Alex Hall out of Park City Utah so far so good John switch back to 17 that trick there's the big transfer 450s out this time around after the final feature if he nails this he could be in business blood to seven beyond tail tap 270 out nobody else really mister and with those scores got from the jumps out the beauty of it the jumps is 50% of your score the gist 50% and he may have just picked up a big score here he kicks it off really well switch 180 just hops on back swap 270 just a lot going on there really excellent in this there's the front switch up back swap 270 out super in control throughout transfers up over gets the 450 out how I really don't know extraordinary let's see if he gets the tap here at 270 on the barrel that swings the 270 as well it just requires extra attention and it's a use of the course that some people aren't them even coming close to touching showing no regard for the do and now it's Hall looking for something in the world we were the first place he's his score comes down looking for something big it's gotta be 18 points 6 camps or better he get static if he's moving into first place this run I got thanks little a fashion feeling that's a that's a podium one of the combination if you ask me the score comes in it's an eighty nine three three so his compound now is a 183 183 three three asthma capitis second in your car lowdown belated third and let's not forget folks we still have a third and final run to go to more athletes to drop here and run number two at McAfee needs to do at least one point better he is in a great place as well ninety two six seven of jumps ninety even on the rails just captain consistency and he's got the tricks certainly to take the top spot over Hobbs on switch 180 270 real clean such a tough trick just a little switch butter 720 whoa 270 on continuing 450 on solid stuff abs on begins the back of the transfer every once again plunging to take over that spot Foxhall is just combos and transfers seem to rule the day and it doesn't hurt your score if you pitched over to the skiers right and visit the Fox jumps around who's this man is so good right side to side look these tips are sliding right there at the first bit and they actually just swings the 270 out and then he does a switch like nose to our tail the nose butter 720 of the snow look oh I was just to be switch right side 270 on continuing 450 out L'Occitane landing maybe was a tiny bit shaky transfer over and gets the 450 out he just he has such whore straight he's so much going for forever McCarran out of Canada and now he moves into first place so Eric's home dropped the gauntlet and Macau creditors right back with a 94 so he has the best score so far in the jibs you call move out with what he did the junk stats and he is the new leader one man to go in run number two of three it'll be henrik Harlow moments ago he had the best chip score with a 92 that has since been eclipsed by evamic Cochran's 94 the most important thing goes combo this is only 50% of your score and that's where Hendrick is gonna be a little bit on the back foot because he didn't have quite the jump score City did he mean if he did not get into the 90s that's true left side for 50 Prince to Saudi switch tails to 270 out right there now coming into this lower section here comes the right side 450 stomping switch very clean last opportunity to pick up some points and comes up a little bit short 450 so doing some quick math you'll need at least in 97 we've taken the lead the overall with 97 here in the jibs with one run to go I think it's gonna come down to seven in the chip section that's gonna require some things that only Henrik Harlow could do and just nosepress Knollys off of that rail into a 270 out super tough stuff a lot of very technically savvy maneuvers and things that it would take the normal person that's a very very solid skier maybe 20 tries to even come close to I mean he's so so good the switch 270 on right there back for out just comes off a little bit early and not the landing you wanted so 79 67 does not help his cause he'll hold on to this 92 we got in run number one it all comes down to the third and final run in the jib section overall leader evamic Acton 186 67 Alex hall and henrik carlo the top three Keita Dixon steady by with the leader heaven but Cochrane and it's shaping up to be a battle between Evan and Alex Wow at 94 in the jib section for you what did you do differently on that second run um well the first run I actually ended up kind of messing up the third rail I didn't actually screw up my trick but I landed on the rail different so I had to improvise and do something a little bit less spinny and then on that run there I locked in proper and could do the fours out instead of the two out so yeah just happy it worked out and happy to lend two runs stoked is there anything more that you could add to add to the score I don't think so honestly that's about as good as I can get on this course so yeah I don't know just gonna go have some more fun it's been an awesome day so just gonna ride the wave let it continue all right now guys I've been looking really good absolutely has been an awesome day this is the to tour and we are down to the third and final run if you like yourself some good old-fashioned drama we'll stick around we've got one run for glory Hema Cochran leads away with Alex Hall nipping at his heels and we've got one more venture into the jib section and then champion will be crowds this is the Dew Tour I'm a strong believer that this is far more of an art than a sport it's my craft it's my artwork I like to show it off to the world this is just a creative outlet I love being outside I love movement I love just jumping off things it's not only about the result it's about how it looks how this style is near there is the athletic side and the artistic side I just want to showcase what I'm capable of doing and I want to represent skiing in a stylish way and hopefully catch some people that don't see skiing often you really truly ski your best when you're having a good time and not sort of not flow and that creativity happens that is what our sport is all about what I think it really comes down to is doing it for yourself look at what's being done what I've done in the past and where do I want to go pioneers are on a journey that most just cannot begin to understand path is off the map uncharted and undone straw and water it is to Center the test is 5 the test is a quest for something innovation and creativity destructed the rush the glory using some labor mr. Brown it has been quite a show at Breckenridge Colorado the men's slopestyle final it started off with the jumps Alex Hall came out swinging throwing down a monster score of 94 the loop van Baalen the rest of the field was up to the task and they answered back at Evan the Kathryn and the rest of the company said you know what get us over the rails and show we'll show you what we could do seriously a 94 of his own was the result after Evan McCarran second run and a well-deserved set of digits right there because his overall impression from my perspective was absolutely sensational current standings that look like this with one run to go and the macaco in leading the way with a 186 six Alex Hall sitting second 183 three and enter Carlisle currently sitting third but Andre arrogantly ABM also still in the hunt it is all about the combo score as we get set for the last run of the day the men slopestyle final so as the Sun begins to set of the Rocky Mountains we've got a little matter of business to handle here the final run in the men's slope style competition Fabian boasts set to drop in on his third and final go-around he needs at least a 93 to take the lead starting things off nicely when I switch right to 17 threats of 450 out nicely done needs some big tricks down here he's got a super solid jump run score Joe Fabian goes down but Luke was there any way he was gonna get that 93 upset after that floor today yeah Bob maybe not but Manny you're right it I mean it's worth bringing up certainly that a bobble at this level of competition shift the numbers that some of these athletes are putting up is virtually not accessible work well when every macaque yourself Tina Dix and the 94 is not all of these guys I don't think any bobble is gonna get you anywhere here at 90 pounds darling let's switch right to 70 on pretzel 450 outs and he comes in to this 450 on really nicely the 450 out he just kept it at 270 it might have changed his plans for the next hit but he probably would have been able to ride that baby out looking for the four out it doesn't Oscar rest are now out of Sweden Stockholm to be exact the 23 year old had a pretty good run in the jump section needs a big score here and I think at this point Emma Cochrane has really set the standard the judges are not going to accept bobbles slight Reaver out people coming off the rails early you're gonna have to be near perfect if you want to be in that 92 93 94 points really basic for the natural rights measure very tough nice left side lipslide 450 very tough trick and West are making it look easy nicely done down to 70 off 450 out the Oscar currently in 8th place would love to bump up himself into five rarefied air I don't forgot it does there but it was a great final run for him certainly definitely uh highlighted right here I love this lipslide 450 pretzel 270 out very complex trick and then he comes in here switch tails 270 continuing 450 out nearly that mountain dew barrel with the tips the skis SiC closer look here nearly quite do the dew didn't quite but a solid run the tricks were their score coming in for Oscar Wester it's a t-33 so his combo score now is 170 so he goes into sixth place down to the final 10 competitors in the men's slope style final this is the jib portion and this is teal Harley out of to be exact so I'm kind of going down a lot of shade out there the legs probably feel a little wobbly after a lot of jumping shredding and uh until already not quite getting the trick we've seen through his first two runs on that first rail so it's probably going to be something of a laid back sort still hardly will crew so teal was sitting on the best score of 69 three three and that's probably would have to stay with ever having issues early on 36:33 does him no good your tool might be one of those guys that prefers to almost have all the jumps and the rails sort of come together maybe he's one of those dudes who likes to flow in between the various aspects of the slopestyle it's hard to say but not quite on his game today comparatively to what we see from him in the past but always stylish ABM Alex Bulo marshawn 24 years of age at Quebec Canada dealing with a tender ankle you see how that manifests itself Luke here as he makes his way down for the final time in the gym section of the slopes of course the job sees the only other guy to perform a triple Ian Henry Carlo brought a switch triple to the table but Alex will you Marshawn finish things out that ankle probably happened from what took place on the third job so points here switch to the extreme complexity I mean from the box up top slide a single footed piece right here watch Hobbs a 180 then the switch 272 back slide that is in itself totally different from what anyone else is doing switch deals 270 pretzel 450 the judges have just got a respond to this left side 450 on continuing 450 off through the dock you tail on that rail which is so difficult that they just wants to stick you switch to 70 on pretzel 450 out that's a great run ABM it's a good one 91 so he goes into the 90 Club 179 3 3 he currently sits in fluff place current standings Evan McCarran of Canada leads with a 186 67 Alex Hall of the US citizen second and Henrik Harlow of Sweden currently sitting in third with a BM Alex pool Omar Shawn holding down the fourth position Ferdinand doll out of Norway the twenty-year-old it's not been his best performance in the rails but right now River is it three run older your best run counts makes it all go away here they get the make it stick and an early exit there from that rail loop which boots disaster look like he's sticking on the rails a little bit sting situation but swings around the switch right side Caleb under 540 I'm sana front swap for 50 out nice stuff from Ferdinand tall the best run we've seen from him thus far through the jibs there's the big back slide switch to switch and Ferdie run down so full of coal for Ferdinand doll out of Norway B is enough to overtake the lady would be these monster scores just to get into the run remember it's a combo from your jump and your rail section jumps for 150s so making it to the podium on a 100-point scale right now not really a feasible deal and very clean tons of props right there as he moves in I love this switch on back slide no movement in the upper body just such a clean slide overall you bring up a good point that 51 really kept him out of any contention for the podium 63 as we take a look at the curve standings evamic Akron leading the way still is at 186 67 and that's by way of a 94 in the rail section so we get a look now at andre Rick n Lee forget Lee currently sitting in sixth place in 84-67 his first gold wrap I've ever hit at 92 loops so talk about a great foundation he could really build upon that with something serious here just needs to put it all together at least an 84 to walk himself into first place and overtake Evan McCaffrey its vlog from four there's that and the simple act of exiting that rail after it was done so beautifully Luke he just gets hung up and loses his balance I set the table nicely on that first trick the front swap to front for fifty out and then the two seventy do a bit of dancing on that Rio gets off it having accomplished that is there's a switch up it's 450 button just snow snake bite and he goes down vocal meat vocal and heat drops to the snow 270 front swap continuing for 50 and oh just the edge of his left ski the outside edge tracked inward and just an unfortunate circumstance right there so what could have been for honor arrogantly after the jumps in a 92 he takes the 84 he now sits in sixth krei Williams out of Park City Utah looks down at this course and says I've got one shot at this thing he's best so far has been an 81 he's something monstrous to keep himself in the running for a top five it's got a break up into the 90s 95 would suit him nicely right side 270 comes out forward different than what we saw in run number one wondering if that was intentional there's that back swap to forward right there and it looks like he's probably gonna have to see who this first run scorer love watching the fray Williams ski current world champion just didn't quite put his ball around together today on the junior section how did pressure knowing that you come over from the jump section if you don't have something upper 80s lower nineties you're probably not gonna be in the running totally beautiful back swap transfer right there that truly shows human bravery I mean that's a courageous and big tail tap right there on the Mountain Dew barrel as he comes up and over just a quick little tap and stomping switch a little homage to the title sponsor McCray Williams best score 81 3 3 so we are down to the final five competitors on the final run of the slopestyle they'll be James Woods next to drop in coming off a great performance on his last run so he's a slow burner started with a 73 went to an 83 now he gets himself into the 90 club look whole different landscape possibly for that podium thanks could happen snaps to switch up top switch to 7450 Oh gets it I will change anything up in this section sticks with it just carries a little bit higher off of the wall right here comes not even a scoring feature is that little loaf we like to call it and he gets I don't you got hung up we just got that was bizarre you just feel for these yeah just just cruising up laps always a judgment would see takes a bow let's look at this one more time from the top I really started off really well switch left 270 on continuing 450 as natural direction of spitting is to the right so it's a high scoring trick right there way up high snaps a 180 real quick out of the wall ride comes creeping over all reaching for the snow but too much speed and wandering woodsy still the smiles face III saw 171 for James Woods and South the place is the best he will be able to do today give me down to the final four and just Kenworthy as the he thinks he's ready to go he knows that it just takes one run he's gonna need a monster score because his jump score was not that high at eighty four three three Kenworthy Curtis could really do it how about it big started early on to that second trail six 3270 out are you kidding me Kenworthy on that disaster so blind over the land that just feel good I'll be first irrespective to just throw that 632 270 landed perfectly on the most difficult rails from the holes taking his frustration out and even a souvenir to a young fan that's been here all day long you know what your day ends well when you get the Gus Kenworthy competition bid autograph what a day watch this here's 450 where BOSU go my Lance weights into 630 and a 270 out thank you Augustus Kenworthy for this beautiful piece of hello that was just truly amazing looking over the right shoulder hops off switch right foot forward just a little tap they started off so well and then of course that bit section exact truly turns heads mm-hmm transfer just got away from him up top so guess Ken we will hold on to this first run score on the rails a 64 for him the current standings looked like this Evan the calculon with a 186 Alex Hall sitting in second and Henrik Harlow in third and this will be the third and final run for these three athletes all battling for the top spot here at Dew Tour 2018 what these guys have be able to do loop has been amazing Henner carlo got it started early with this 92 one run one yeah and then Evan macaque ran up onto the top of the wall ride with the right side 270 and just continued to bring the heat switch right to 70 on some of his biggest tricks spun to the right which for most ears is the harder way to spin and transfer to 450 out of a macaron has just been on fire Alex Hall now currently sitting in second place he needs a 92 point six eight to take the lead after Alex Hall in the Evan McCarran and Henrik on row will be the last man to drop in the competition so Henrik will have the final say now it's all you know the numbers this is what he's got to do on and just dancing on the rail there he goes again backside 270 sounds like you got a little bit hung up on that see if he keeps the run going here gets the 450 out of the transfer nicely done right there from Hall 270 on and Lord good for the tap right there on the 450 goodness victim we were hoping to see right there there was have to tell what the mistake was little bit early on that second feature switch 180 on how's the right foot forward back swap 270 real clean very creative combination right there super solid and here's where he comes in there's the back swap Oh didn't get his spin out right there so that probably had an influence on the overall feel of his run and with judges you know certainly watching to see everything that's going down they know what he's been doing they know he made a mistake there so that will be counted against him unfortunately in some cases your count York sort of judged against yourself they know what he's capable of they know he's done in the past and here's Alex hall once again look at that get the tap in as well oh yeah very very nice still sitting in that second position coming off to the jumps Alex Hall have the best schools and 40.2 68 over take some video we will get a 90 180 for now it's all some men a possible second place position here and then there were two Evan macaque one still the leader with a 186 points six seven he knows that henna carlo will have the final run of the day he's got the best score in the jib so far with a 94 and that was combined with a amazing score the jumps Luke 18 82.6 it begs the question man or machine at this point only to Tina Dixon he thought that 94 was the best he could do but why not go out give it a shot look at this mixing things up just a little bit looking clean little switch buttered out 720 right there switch to 70 on 450 out clean right through the donkey tail there it's so difficult to even imagine being I mean testing well to come right in and bring that unbelievable run twice switch 270 on back swap straight out and then he just rolls in casually boosts up onto the top of the wall ride right side 270 continuing 270 out and that's really the trick that has set him apart there's just nobody else touching that so from the human perspective of the judges it's like well that's just bigger he's up higher he's doing the trick it's a right side trick and it's really difficult here's the switch 270 kind of performs an almost flip slide there if I'm not mistaken so he's got to clear his skis up over the front of the rail which is even more rewarded here's that transfer great balance opps swings the 450 out just unreal comes in now it is an improvement 84 6 7 with just one man left in the slopestyle final Henrik parlo out of sweetheart the score he needs at least a ninety seven point six six that is a monster score yes Henrik Harlow though is capable of a ninety seven point six six the luc1 can he do that he hasn't done so far to impress the judges to say you know what you are the man well it's hard to say I think you clean up his final feature here it is outside his over there instead of he was totally behind ninety seven six six and Edie comes up short so 181 six seven and the champion officially as the Dew Tour champion in slopestyle for 2018 what a performance by the Canadian he was consistent that jumps and even more so in the chip section is now stand by with Tina Dixon yeah guys and Evan was not in the lead when he came into the rail section you had to deliver and you did that so what was the mindset like after the jumps honestly I figured like I thought I'd get a higher score in the jump section and in the rail section but I guess they liked my line selection and I don't know I was having so much fun today and the weather was perfect everyone was having a time and this is what we do so yeah you said that you couldn't get a higher score after that second run and you did but you still had Henrik to go he could have knocked you off of course yeah what was it like watching him go I was nerve-racking for sure but I mean at that point I didn't care what happened I already knew I'd ended up on the podium and that was enough for me and then this is just the cherry on top I can't believe it how would you sum up your first du Tour win mind blowing I don't know I'm insanely excited and I can't wait to go party tonight what a performance guys congratulations of it yeah cheers thank you all right Todd Thank You Tina congratulations once again evamic Akron comes to the slopestyle course he was resolutely stellar awesome on the jump features and dominated on the rails under 98-94 and at ninety four point six seven mr. consistency look he clearly was the best athlete on the hill today there's no question about it the back-to-back switch double 1440 so well accomplished in so funny to watch throughout this jump these believe back to three amigos boom so consistent watch his landings just saw if he's already seemingly looking at the next joke when he rolls in the air comes the back-to-back switch double cork 1440s at two flips four spins and he's grabbing the lead tail on that just so perfectly that slow-motion shot really shows it that left arm coming out locking in the tail so clean got high scores for that did take the top spot in the jobs but when he transferred over to Rails was expecting maybe to not be able to beat his score that he achieved in the jump section but that of course not the case as the Kakarot comes down the line choice I think was definitely part of it popping up right 270 onto the wall ride just showcasing that he's willing to do something a little bit different than the rest of the field and do it well so 270 on continuing for super clean through a very difficult rail switch on watch the transfer and then he swings the 450 out Evan McCarran with a very well-deserved due to a wing the final results look like this for the bands that slopestyle and what a show it was Evan macaque or now 187 three four American Alex Hall out of Park City finishing in second and Henrik Carlo of Sweden finishing in third with that 181 67 great performances from top to bottom from all 12 of the athletes everyone brought it today on this new modified program the two act play but it was Evan the Kakarot who reigned supreme in Breckenridge Colorado once again passion and progression on full display high atop the rocky mount's and again the Dew Tour serving notice what is capable on boards and skis congratulations to all of our athletes and on behalf of Tina Dixon and Luc van Baalen I'm Todd Harris Saints so long from beautiful Breckenridge Colorado this has been the Dew Tour

    That first jib run was insane and second jump run was ridiculous

    Nuh uh! This is just absolutely absurd!!
    The stuff these guys are doing is IMPOSSIBLE!!!
    I can barely pull off a clean 360, these guys are doing SWITCH 1620's DURING A DOUBLE CORK / MISTY (UPSIDE DOWN TWICE)… Off of 65 foot kickers?? WHAT??? My brain just can't… Looking for words… No words… Just WHAT??
    I'd say they're candidates for the Darwin Awards, but maybe this is actually natural selection and everyone else who's tried is already dead or quadriplegic…
