Torah Bright drops an insane first run, wins women’s Dew Tour superpipe

The 2013 Dew Tour women’s superpipe wrapped up this afternoon, with Torah Bright topping the podium, edging out Kelly Clark and Chloe Kim, who took second and third, respectively.

Bright, who is gunning to qualify as an Olympic triple-threat – to compete in pipe, slopestyle, and boardercross- has kicked off her Olympic year in a big way, taking down the seemingly unbeatable Kelly Clark to win the women’s Dew Tour superpipe.

Entering finals after qualifying in fifth, Torah stomped run one with a McTwist, air to fakie, cab 720, frontside 540, a frontside alley-oop and a backside alley-oop rodeo, earning herself a 95.4, a score that went untouched for the rest of the contest.

Listen in as Susie Floros, Amy Purdy, and Torah Bright talk snowboarding, slashing, and Bright’s win:

Clark dropped in and laid out a huge frontside air, followed by a backside 540, frontside 1080, cab 720, frontside 540, rounding out her run with a solid. frontside 720. Her run wasn’t enough to top Bright, however, and after washing out on the third hit of her second run, she found herself relegated to second. Chloe Kim, Burton’s 13 year old wonder child, added another badge to her breakout year, putting down two solid runs and ending the afternoon with a third place finish.

For Bright and Clark, this podium represents another step towards their Sochi dreams becoming reality, while Kim, who is currently too young to qualify for the US team, is simply cementing her status as a force to be reckoned with in women’s snowboarding.
