Jamie Anderson stomps second run, wins Women’s Dew Tour slopestyle in dramatic fashion

Coming out of Wednesday’s slopestyle qualifiers, 8 of snowboarding’s top ladies took to the course this afternoon to vie for both the 2013 iON Mountain Dew Tour win, and a top spot coming out of the first 2014 Olympic qualifiers.

The contest was a continuous battle, as returning champ Anderson ended her first run in sixth after overshooting the final jump. Enni Rukajarvi and Silje Norendal, who ended up taking second and third, respectively, also fell on their first runs, but stepped up big time heading into an intense round of second runs.

Silje laid out a solid second run, taking over first place temporarily. Next to drop, however, was Rukajarvi, who snapped up an 89.40 and overtook Norendal for the top spot.

Jamie Anderson left her little room to celebrate, however, as she stepped to the plate and delivered a heavy run; a back bluntside across the first rail to a gap to boardslide to fakie, right into a cab 720 tail and a switch backside 540, all rounded out by a front 360 shifty into a huge backside 540 and the win.

Congrats to Jamie on another epic win!

Results:
1st Place – Jamie Anderson
2nd Place – Enni Rukajarvi
3rd Place – Silje Norendal
