All women went from semi-finals straight into a two-run final of 21 riders. Kelly Clark (USA), once again, set the bar for the rest of the field and put down her best run on her first drop throwing down a frontside 900, backside 540, frontside 720 and finished with a Cab 720. With her first place finish here, combined with her victory last weekend at the 6Star O’Neill Evolution, Kelly has made her presence known in the Swatch TTR World Ranking and will be a competitor to watch out for throughout the rest of the season. Kelly had this to say about the day, “I love this pipe and I come here every year. It’s one of my favorite events to come to because the pipe is so much fun to ride,” and she continued to talk about her win saying, “It’s great winning another 6Star event, I’m looking forward to the Burton Canadian Open and the Burton US Open and to see if I can’t get a few more good results.”Behind Kelly was young Spanish rider, Queralt Castellet, who has been shaking things up in the women’s halfpipe scene and broke into the TTR Top 50 with her second place finish today, as did the Japanese rider, Yuki Furihata, who placed third.History Repeats Itself in the Men’s …
