DEW TOUR: OWEN PICK WINS GOLD AS GUS KENWORTHY AND ZOE ATKIN ALSO MAKE THE PODIUM

OWEN PICK WINS DEW TOUR ADAPTIVE BANKED SLALOM

GB Snowsport rider Owen Pick collected his first career win in any major contest at Dew Tour. 

Pick, who wears a below-the-knee prosthetic on his right leg, put down a time of of 1:06.02 which put him 1.56 seconds ahead of 2nd place finisher Matti Suur-Hamari (Finland) in the men’s class, with 3rd place finisher Keith Gabel (USA) in 3rd.

“We obviously had a ton of snow overnight, but the crew got up super early this morning, shaped and slipped the course, and actually made it really good, considering what they had to deal with, so it was quite nice and hats off to those guys,” he said. “All I was thinking the whole way down was ‘be gentle, be gentle,’ because as soon as you over edge, you’ve just lost all your speed. As soon as hit a spot of deep powder, you’ve lost everything. I had a really good line through my first run and it paid off in the end.”
