Jamie Anderson tops 2014 Burton US Open women’s slopestyle podium

jamie-anderson-wins-2014-burton-us-openDespite poor visibility and snowy conditions, the 2014 Burton US Open women’s slopestyle finals went off in prime form this morning with recent Olympic gold medalist Jamie Anderson adding yet another notch to her belt, taking the win as well as the overall slopestyle TTR World Snowboard Tour Title. Though conditions were not idea, the ladies agreed that the speed was not an issue, and they felt confident that they could put down solid runs.

The Open boasts a 3 run format— the same as all TTR events and the X Games— which proved highly beneficial to the riders today, as many of the ladies had trouble putting down clean first runs.

Anderson came in hot with her first of three runs, cementing her spot a top the leader board and holding it down throughout the contest. Her winning run— the same that earned her the Olympic gold— included a 50-50 front board on the first rail, a 50-50 back tap onto the cannon, cab 5, cab 7 tail, switch back 5, and front 7 to take the win.

“I’m so glad that Burton has created a stage to really show what snowboarders are capable of,” said Anderson, noting that it feels good to be out here supporting an event that has always supported the riders.
