The Grand Prix series is over and the US Olympic Snowboard team was announced following Sunday’s final event. With the stakes high and several spots up for grabs, the pipe and slopestyle finals were pushing riders to new levels of progression. We are proud to have 3 girls from Gnu representing the US in the Sochi Olympics!
Jamie Anderson won the last 3 qualifiers on her Ladies Choice ASS Pickle and earned herself the National Slopestyle Champion title as well as a spot on the Olympic team. Ty Walker will also be competing for the US in slopestyle on the Ladies Choice. Kaitlyn Farrington won the final Grand Prix halfpipe event, with a technical run that put her ahead of all the leading ladies. She will be going to Sochi on her B-Pro C3 BTX and B-Free bindings.
If you see these ladies on Mt Weird, give them a high five and wish them luck!
