Dew Tour continued with Streetstyle, Gus Kenworthy and Hunter Hess provided the laughs and wisdom. The course had four sets of features and the competition would run as a qualifying heats with head-to-head finals where the riders would have to put down two different runs with both counting. Walker Shredz kicked things off as a forerunner lacing a front 3 swap continuing 2 on the final flat down.
Heat 1 - Hall, Zahner, Kilbride, Bacher
Alex Hall transferred across three rails on the second set of features, bailing on the final hit and getting caught up, Zahner also got caught on the final feature. Keegan came out of the gates with his signature switch 270 noses under completing the first full run with style. Dani Bacher, oozes steeze, lip on blind 2 on the firecracker from far out and missed his blind swap transfer on the second set. In his second run, A Hall laced the final switch lip frontswap transfer front 2 for 81.33. Sam Zahner cleaned things up, with a front 3 swap to regs on the final transfer feature, 79.00. Dani Bacher missed his blindswap again but front-flipped a rail takeoff for a prize bounty. In Run 3 A Hall swapped out his switch lip front swap pretz 2 for switch lip super fed. Dani Bacher put down a super elusive on the final transfer to donkey dick, earning 69.00. Alex Hall and Sam Zahner advanced.
Heat 2 - Fitzsimons, Dufresne, Egan, Koukov
Heat 2 had the boys firing cleanly from the word go. Tucker skied out of the gates with his signature speed and tech, 81.66 opened the scoring. Matt Duff opened things with a lip 2 to switch, with a left 2 and right 2 on as well as a super fed on the polejam to wallride. Pete Koukov brought his creativity to the course, lacing a 270 to backslide and a one-footer on the long down rail and taking a tight ski through to the wallride to do a right 450 out of it. Tucker opened with a 2P4 on the top right-hand rail and closing things with a 450 to regs on the final rail, but coming off early on the long down rail lip disaster back 2. The overall step-up of tech on the top and bottom features had him score 83.66. Matt Duff, sitting in second cleaned things up adding to his score, 76.33. Andrew Eagan put down both ways switch tails too, he tried to hold a backslide on the left variant on the flat down but touched a little, he closed the gap on Dufrense scoring 71.33. Koukov went for a right cork 630 off the wallride but couldn't squeak it around. Matt Duff continued to give himself space in the final run, Egan held his backslide to the end on the final hit, getting a little caught up trying to get a continuing 2 but bringing it around just about, this was enough to get ahead of Dufrense, likely for spinning left and right with his 270s. Fitzsimons and Egan advanced.
Heat 3 - Stevenson, Carson, Therriault, Barrett
Colby opened up with a switch left 2P4 on the waterfall, a blind 3 swap that he didn't lock in, left 2 continuing 2 on the drop down and a super fed transfer on the final section, 82.66 and preliminary first. Cal Carson skied a little loose even by his standards but had a nice variety of tricks although was hindered on the scoring due to a lack of cleanliness. Edjoy switch blender tails on back 2 to open things, switch on back 4 off the transfer rail on the death kink at the bottom was super nice, 73.33 was enough for a current chance to advance. Colby locked up his front 3 swap and got the continuing 2 he missed in run 1, allowing him to go for the rightside 4 onto the drop-down, he set the bar with 86.66 and the highest score of the night so far. Cal Carson surprised everyone with a switch 2 continuing 6 but his run remained behind Edjoy's. Edjoy stepped things up with a switch blender tails 2, left 2 continuing 4, lip 2 continuing 2 and the final switch on transfer to back 4 was cleaner, bumping his score to 77.33. Calvin Barrett laced a run with a lip 2 a broken slide back 2, and a left 2 cont 2 but would stay at the bottom of the pack. Colby showed his class with a totally new run that still scored in the 80s. Calvin cleaned things up but wouldn't be rewarded that well for it and the crowd agreed with some boos. Stevenson and Therriault advanced.
Hall v Zahner
Alex Hall's first run had wallie backswap to regs on the first feature, sitch 2 continuing 2 and repeated the switch lip Ellen on the transfer rail. Egan put down switch lip back 2, left 2 backslide continuing 2 but fell on the pole jam wallride back 2 leaving the door open for A Hall. Hall continues to show his quality with a NB 4 to regs, right 2 continuing, 2 backswap to switch finished with a switch left 2 cont 2.

Fitzsimons v Therriault
Tucker opened this battle with a right 2p4, left 4 to regs lip disaster front 2, switch 2 back 2. Clean as you like. Edjoy responded with blender switch tails on back 2, left 2 continuing 4, right 2 continuing to and the switch lip noses over transfer back 2 to finish. echoing his run from qualifiers. Tucker followed this first run with a switch left tails 2, polejam back 2, right 2 switch, and mirrored Edjoy's final trick. Edjoy got his tails hung up on a switch tails 4, then took the road less travelled getting up on the shipping container and sent a flat 450 off the wallride for the crowd and some extra cash, not enough to beat Tucker but Edjoy skied with signature style. Tucker won with 92.00.
Stevenson v Egan
Colby put down a solid first run, switch left 2p4 on the fire cracker, a super clean back 3 swap to switch followed by a switch right 2 cont 2 and a super fed on the final transfer to donkey.

Tucker responded with a right 2p4, switch left 2 continuing 2, lip disaster back 2, left 4 p2, it was good enough for 89.33 and second as Hall couldn't put it down clean in his final run.
