Level’s stacked Team made a lasting impression at the inaugural winter Dew Tour event at Breckenridge this weekend with Gretchen Bleiler’s victory in the Women’s Superpipe and Duncan Adams’ third place in the Men’s Freeski Superpipe. But the fun didn’t stop there as Matt Walker nailed down 5th in Men’s Freeski Slopestyle and Xavier Bertoni from France grabbed 6th in the Pipe. And in the Men’s Superpipe, Finland’s Janne Korpi took 3rd place.
Bleiler’s victory came in dramatic fashion with a come from behind, sensational 2nd run that sealed the victory over Kelly Clark. After a slow start in last week’s Grand Prix event at Copper and in Friday’s prelims, GB finally exploded with a dominant run that put a huge smile on the champ’s face.
For 16 year old Duncan Adams, the podium finish behind Tanner Hall and Justin Dorey was a remarkably consistent break out performance that featured back to back switch tricks and a flowing, smooth style that the judges rewarded with high marks on all of his runs through the prelims and finals.
The Dew Tour is the world’s richest action sports tour in the world. Over 100 of the world’s best snowboarders and freeskiers will follow the Tour to the remaining two stops at Mount Snow, VT and Northstar, CA , all scrapping for a 1.5 million dollar prize purse. Fans can catch LIVE coverage on NBC along with loads of play from MTV, MTV2, and USA.
