The Winter Dew Tour Nike Open hosted an action-packed day of finals on their record-breaking superpipe under bluebird skies at Breckenridge today, where 2011 Dew Cup Champion Kevin Rolland picked up right where he left off last season with a win in Men's Ski Superpipe Finals.

Rolland’s run began with a switch 900, going into a switch rightside 720, back-to-back double flairs, and finishing with a stylish double cork 12.
The French native topped Justin Dorey and local Duncan Adams, who finished second and third respectively.

"It was really important for me to win the Dew Tour,” said Rolland. “Winning the first competition of the year will keep me confident for the rest of the season. I'm stoked. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the season.”
