House team rider Kaitlyn Farrington was on fire all week. After qualifying second behind Olympic gold medalist Kelly Clark in Thursday’s qualifiers at Copper Mountain, CO, Kaitlyn snuck her way past the ever-dominant Clark in Saturday’s finals for her first Grand Prix win.
Snowboarder Magazine wrote of Farrington’s win: “Easily coming out on top for the ladies at Copper was Sun Valley, Idaho’s Kaitlyn Farrington. Being able to keep her speed enabled Kaitlyn to perform arguably the two best tricks of the day. Farrington followed up her second hit bs 900 corkscrew with a crippler 720. As if this combo wasn’t enough Kaitlyn added a cab seven to the mix to make the win that much more dominant.”
