Woodsy wins back to back Slopestyle events in New Zealand

James 'Woodsy' Woods today secured his second Slopestyle win in consecutive days as he again stood on top of the podium at the Cardrona Games in New Zealand. 

Following Woodsy's win yesterday in the first Slopestyle contest of the Cardrona Games, he again showed his class as he came out on top in a tight contest against an international field. After a solid first run he sealed the win on his second run with a double 1260 and his unique Octo Grab. 

Woodsy said after his wins: “It’s been a big two days of competition and I’m really proud to have won on both days. It’s a big test to make two finals and to land two runs. Respect to all the competitors, everyone killed it.”

There were also strong performances from team-mates Tyler Harding and Felix Klein who took 7th and 9th respectively in the finals today. This followed their 8th and 11th places from the first Slopestyle contest. 

The Cardrona Games are jointly sanctioned as FIS (International Ski Federation) Continental Cups and AFP (Association of Freeskiing Professionals) Silver level events for the skiing contests. 

Next up will be the halfpipe skiers, Rowan Cheshire and Pete Speight, who compete tomorrow.
