Spencer O’Brien finishes third in women’s slopestyle on Dew Tour

Darcy Sharpe finishes 10th and defends Streetstyle title for fourth year

Canadian snowboarders once again dominated the Dew Tour final rankings, including a total sweep of the men’s slopestyle podium.

Mark McMorris (Regina, SK) took the top spot with Max Parrot (Bromont, QC) and Sébastien Toutant (L’Assomption, QC) second and third, respectively. Spencer O’Brien (Courtenay, BC) took third on the women’s side.

Shaking up the traditional slopestyle format, this year’s Dew Tour featured both separate jump and jib events with competitors combined scores counting towards their final ranking.

Due to inclement weather, the women’s jump section was cancelled, with the jib section scores used for the final ranking. A solid effort from O’Brien saw her take third with a score of 80 points, behind only Jamie Anderson (USA, 91.33) and Hailey Langland (USA, 86.00).

Canadians all finished in the top 10 of the slopestyle competition with Tyler Nicholson (North Bay, ON) and Mikey Ciccarelli (Ancaster, ON) finishing fifth and sixth, respectively. Darcy Sharpe (Comox, BC) finished in 10th and also successfully defended his Streetstyle title for the fourth year in a row.

New to this year’s competition was also the Team Challenge, with six snowboard brands invited to participate. Representing Burton, McMorris and Sharpe teamed up with Norway’s Terje Håkonsen and took home the top prize ahead of Toutant and the Nitro Snowboards team.
