Mark McMorris earns a near perfect score, wins men’s Dew Tour slopestyle final

A fitting end to this weekend’s next level Dew Tour throw downs, Mark McMorris won the men’s slopestyle comp after putting down the two highest scores of the day. McMorris, who qualified into finals in 11th, showed up with a vengeance, stomping his first run and earning a 95, leading the group after first runs wrapped.

For his second run, McMorris not only maintained first, but actually topped his own score, locking down the win with a hardway backside 270 to 270 out on the first rail, a cab 270 on the second, to cab double cork 1260 and a frontside 1080 double cork off of the first two jumps before landing a straight double backflip, rounding out his epic run with a huge 1440 triple cork on the fourth and final jump. McMorris took his 97.8 right to the top of the podium.

Sven Thorgren, who is fresh off of a win at last week’s Air & Style Beijing, put down a 91.00 with his first run, a score that landed him second place overall. Coming in third was Maxence Parrot, with a second run that oozed style and afforded him the final spot on the podium.

Noticeably absent from the competition was Shaun White, who, despite taking first in qualifiers, sprained his ankle during the men’s superpipe finals Saturday morning and was unable to compete.
