Wiig Wins Best Trick Slopestyle At The First Ever Winter Dew Tour

Posted 12/22/2008

After a long week of snow and wind, Vans Snow Team rider Andreas Wiig pulled it together and placed 4th in the Winter Dew Tour slopestyle, but won best trick! A switch backside 1260 to the bottom of the biggest jump on the course was what gave Andreas the best trick honors. It was pretty much the most amazing stomp ever witnessed! Andreas probably would have won if he had enough speed to hit the third and final jump on course. Either way, he killed it and we'll have to see if he can pull it off again at the next stop in Vermont.
