TripleCrown Dryslope Big Air + Quarterpipe Championship 16-17 November 2019
Snowsport Scotland Triple Crown Dryslope Big Air + Quarterpipe Championship were held last weekend at Bearsden Ski and Snowboard Club.
The Crown Jam was first-up, an informal 1 hour Jam giving all riders the chance to warm-up and win some prizes with no pressure to land only to progress, go big and have fun. Stand out being Bearsden Freestyle Program athlete Fraser Jamieson coming soooo close to landing a backside double 1080 off the jump, that’s a UK first and a hint at the level!
Next up was the Under12’s Champs with the groms having 45 minutes to lap as many judged runs as they wanted to demonstrate their ability and the level was high, with front flips, back flips 540’s 7’s, 9’s and an attempt on a 1080 from Deja Parker! That’s right a nine year old spinning a 1080!!! The standard was high!
The Open Champs was next with both the Under 16’s and Open categories going head to head! The qualifications saw stiff competition with 8 Men and 4 woman from Ski and Snowboard going through to finals and what a final it was. Olivia Burke put down Switch 5’s to take the win overall and in the open for woman ski, with Abbie Harkness spinning both ways to take the win in Woman Under 16’s Ski, Sandra Caune going massive for silver and Heidi MacKay taking Bronze. In Woman’s snowboarding Abbie Greig pulled out from finals due to injury but impressed in qualification with solid technical riding to take the win.
Freeski men’s saw fierce competition with coach and athlete going head-to-head! Aberdeen Snowsports, Coach James Findlater, battling against his own athletes. James took the win in the Open Category with some newly learnt Cork 7’s. Meanwhile over in Under 16’s Arran Sangster took the win with typically solid riding, cork 9 on the jump to switch fronty on the quarter. Xander Williams claimed 2nd with a 9 on the jump to hand plant Cork 7 and Connor Sheves took bronze with cork 7 to flair.
Snowboard men was hotly contested in both Open and Under 16’s with many Snowsport Scotland riders battling for honours. In under 16’s Roahan Duncan impressed with backside 3’s on the jump to hand plant on the quarter to take bronze, Euan Rogers going upside twice with Cab-Underflip to Mctwist for Silver and Liam Tynan all the way from England taking the win with typically steely back 7’s off the jump to hand plants on the Quarter. Lastly the Open men with Fin Bremnar, GBSnowsport Park & Pipe Team, in the mix to raise the bar the level was high. Logan King impressed with his massive amplitude on the jumps putting down back 7 to hand plant for Bronze, Bearsden local lad Lewis Moore stepped up with cab900 on the jump and backflip on the quarter to take silver and Fin Bremnar fresh from injury took gold with signature massive tail grabbed Switch Backside 900’s and 540’s on the quaterpipe. He is defiantly on the mend and good luck to him competing in Langraff soon.
