The Dew Tour Team Competition is back for 2017! Faction already has the reputation as one of the most stacked athlete teams, but will their team live up to the expectations? This year Faction has put together an epic roster that will be led by Team Captain Johnny Collinson.
Rails: Alex Hall
Picking Alex Hall for Faction's rail section of the team challenge is pretty much a no-brainer. Alex has made a name for himself partly with his innovative rail game and can be spotted in Faction's recent film This is Home slaying the urban rails of Finland. While this year will be Alex's second appearance at the Dew Tour, he's been gaining momentum in the competition circuit of late and definitely isn't someone to underestimate here.
Jumps: Tim McChesney
Tim McChesney is an all-around great skier who can literally rip anything. Urban? Yes. Pillow lines? Definitely. Park Jumps? Easy. While Tim has virtually left competitions behind, last year he competed at the Rail Jam on Breckenridge's main street and won the best trick award for a stylin' rail to rail transfer. This year Tim is coming back to the Dew Tour again to represent Faction in the Team Challenge, where he will no doubt throw down with style.
Modified Superpipe: Cody Cirillo
Cody Cirillo is a Summit County local who will no doubt be a fan favorite with the audience. His last Dew Tour appearance was in 2011 as a young up-and-comer on the slopestyle scene but has yet to compete in any halfpipe events. However, Cody can no doubt step up to the plate to bring some creative tricks to the challenge, since he can already be seen doing just that in Faction edits.
Will Faction take the title this year? Let us know and check out the Team Challenge on Sunday to find out. It kicks off at 8am Mountain Time.
