2009 WINTER DEW TOUR -- Justin Dorey 3rd, Duncan Adams 4th, and Mike Riddle 6th Overall --
Dynastar/Lange has three of the top Superpipe athletes in the
world. The final stop of the Winter Dew Tour at Northstar in
California, on February 21st 2009, was an incredible day for Dorey,
Riddle, and Adams. Although this Tour stop was not their most
successful, it still had a tremendous impact on the freestyle world.
Justin Dorey... Unbelievable! The first and only person to do 2
double back flips in one run of Pipe -- one on each wall. "The level
of skiing is crazy right now," said Tanner Hall from the winner's
podium, "The man who really deserves props tonight is Justin Dorey --
that dude is the future of Halfpipe skiing!"
Justin, 20 years old, was unable to land his two double back flips but
has given the world a glimpse of his potential as well as the sport's
potential. Congratulations to Dorey, who still clinched 3rd in the
overall standings despite his 11th place finish in Tahoe.
Adams, 16 years old, had a breakthrough season and will continue his
quest next year. He finished 4th in the overall Superpipe standings
with a 3rd at the first stop in Breckenridge, 6th place in Mount Snow,
but was unable to make the finals in at Northstar in Tahoe.
Riddle, 22 years old, finished 6th in the overall Superpipe standings
and 12th in the overall Slopestyle standings. Mike proved to be a
contender in both disciplines but fell short in the finals which kept
him from the podium. In both Slopestyle and Pipe, Mike qualified in
the top three solidifying his position among the top competitors.
Tanner Rainville, Dan Marion, Alex Schlopy as well as young
up-and-comers, Hans Wiener, Jack Sullan and Matt Duhamel are Team
members that have also achieved great results this season.
Congratulations to all Dynastar/Lange athletes!
