Anderson wraps up Dew Cup

Jenny Jones and Jamie Anderson are developing a friendly slopestyle rivalry.

Jones won the recent X Games title in Aspen, Colo., but Anderson bounced back to take last weekend’s final stop of the Winter Dew Tour, the Toyota Championship, at Mount Snow, Vt.

The South Lake Tahoe rider wrapped up the Dew Cup with her win, which was based on two outstanding runs in Friday’s finals. Her second run, which scored a tour record 96.25 points, included a switch backside 540, frontside 720 and backside 180 combo. The 19-year-old Anderson also wowed judges with her work on the rails and boxes at the top of the course.

Jones was second and Spencer O’Brien took third.

“The course was a bit scary, but in really good shape today and the conditions were much better then they have been. Today was just really fun and I’m really excited for everyone.” Anderson commented on the Winter Dew Tour Web site.

Torstein Horgmo won the men’s slopestyle with a top score of 96.50. Nick Poohachoff of the South Shore finished seventh. Chas Guldemond of Reno was fifth.

Unlike the X Games, Anderson competed in the superpipe. She finished sixth and wound up tied for fifth in the overall standings with South Shore’s Elena Hight, who skipped the final event to focus on the upcoming Winter Games in Vancouver.

Kaitlyn Farrington won the women’s superpipe, finishing ahead of Madeline Schaffrick and Kjersti Ostgaard Buaas. J.J. Thomas took the men’s title with Brennen Swanson second and Steve Fisher third. Elijah Teter of South Lake Tahoe was 11th.

Simon Dumont took first in the freeski superpipe.
