House Boardshop Team Rider Kaitlyn Farrington has been on fire this season. In case you missed it, this past weekend was the last of three stops for the 2011 Winter Dew Tour. Kaitlyn threw down a flawless run to nab her second Dew Tour silver medal, a close second behind the overall Winter Dew Tour champ Kelly Clark.
Congrats go out to Kaitlyn’s podium finish and to her Houseboardshop fellow team members Brennen Swanson and Tyler Anderson who also competed, placing 11th and 27th in the men’s superpipe prelims. Check out the video highlights courtesy of Alli Sports below.
Women’s Toyota Championship Winter Dew Tour Superpipe Results:
Congratulations to House Boardshop team rider Kaitlyn Farrington who took third place in today’s Superpipe Finals at the Breckenridge Dew Tour. Kaitlyn is on a podium streak after winning last weekend’s Copper Mountain Grand Prix. Last year she was the all around Dew Cup winner for the ladies of the halfpipe and with another podium finish she is well on her way to earning a second Dew Cup after the three-stop tour this winter.
Spain’s Queralt Castellet and Volcom’s Elena Hight came in first and second respectively. For more on today’s competition head over to Snowboard Magazine’s wrap up by clicking here.
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.”
