Scotty James claims halfpipe silver in Colorado

Monday, 18 December 2017

VIS Snowboarder, Scotty James, won silver in the halfpipe at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado.


James had struggled to lay down a clean run in the final of the World Cup event in nearby Copper Mountain last weekend but returned to form on Saturday.


The world champion led after the first two runs with a top score of 96 points but was edged by Jake Pates (97.33) in the final run.


“I feel good, we achieved what we wanted to do,” James said.


“I was happy to come away with a second, which felt like redemption on last week.”
