Dew Tour Breckenridge: An inside look2014-12-09
Fantasy Freeride is officially back for the 2014-15 competition season as Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado kicks off this week. With that in mind, we are here to make sure you've got all your bases covered.
Below you'll find our expert analyst layout the facts for you, hopefully giving you some insight into who to draft for stop one of the 2015 FFL season.
David Wise - $19,000
Olympic gold medalist David Wise is a good buy at any price, thanks to his knack for posting consistent results at the biggest contests year after year. He started the 2014-15 contest season off on the right foot with a win at the Copper Grand Prix. Now, he has his sights set on defending his Dew Tour gold medal; we like his chances.
Torin Yater-Wallace - $18,000
Torin Yater-Wallace's 2013-14 contest season was hampered by a chest injury sustained at the 2013 Dew Tour. That being said, the 19-year-old Aspen-native will be a force to be reckoned with in the stunt ditch this year. Torin qualified in first place at the Copper Grand Prix on his way to a second place finish overall, boosting some of the biggest airs of the event. Torin tells FREESKIER that he "feels good" heading into Dew Tour; that makes us feel good about his chances of making the podium.
Kevin Rolland - $19,000
Kevin has been dominating the halfpipe contest scene for years now, and with a podium finish in just about every big event in recent years, it would only make sense that he would continue the trend. Currently ranked second by the AFP, Kevin has proven time and time again that he has what it takes to make the podium, if not win, the event.
Kyle Smaine - $18,000
Kyle has been on a roll recently, steadily moving up in the rankings. Although a collarbone injury kept him out for a good portion of last year's contest season, Kyle is back and skiing better than before, making him an athlete to look out for in this first FFL event. Plus, he's having more fun than anybody out there, which rises his stock even more.
Nick Goepper - $19,000
Goepper is one of the strongest and most consistent skiers in the slopestyle field. He won last year's Toyota Championship, and currently holds the top spot in the AFP rankings. Nick is always a safe bet for a podium finish; we like his odds of being able to start the year off with more of the same.
Alex Beaulieu-Merchand - $20,000
After a solid contest season last year, in which he was the only Canadian male to be named to the Olympic slopestyle team, it would only make sense that he would come back this season hungrier than ever. ABM's technical yet stylish runs have helped him make moves in the slope scene. Considering his second place finish at last year's Dew Tour, we think he has the potential to take the win.
Bobby Brown - $20,000
Home court advantage always seems to give Bobby the edge when skiing at Breckenridge, Colorado. Coming off yet another strong contest year, we would not be surprised to see him high in the rankings for yet another season. Currently ranked second in the AFP rankings, Bobby is a contender for a podium finish at Dew.
Evan McEachran - $19,500
Although many might not know who this kid is, last season he proved he could compete with the top contenders by coming away with the win at the AFP World Championships. If you're looking for a dark horse, McEachran is your man.
Gus Kenworthy - $23,500
Very few people are able to compete at this stage in both slope and pipe, yet Gus has proven time and again that he is able to podium in either discipline. Gus got back in the pipe for the first time in 11 months for the Copper Grand Prix, and managed to make finals. Bottom line is that Kenworthy's dual-threat abilities make him a must-own.
Maddie Bowman - $18,000
Despite missing the Copper Grand Prix, Maddie is one of the strongest competitors in the field. After claiming top spot in X Games, The Olympics and this very event last year, the AFP points leader Maddie the favorite in the women's pipe field.
Marie Martinod - $18,000
Marie has been in the game longer than any other competitor in the women's field, and with very solid results in every competition she entered last year, including a win at the SFR tour and a third place finish at X games, we're betting Martinod makes her way to the front of the pack.
Roz Groenewoud - $17,000
Although she had a bit of a rough competition season last year, Roz is healthy and skiing well. She has finished on the podium eleven times in various AFP events since 2012, and it would not be surprising to see her pick right up where she left off at Dew.
Brita Sigourney - $18,000
Brita is back on skis after a summer skiing injury. She sat out the Copper Grand Prix, but is 100% ready for Dew Tour. Brita has proven to be a heavy contender, with the capability of emerging victorious.
Annalisa Drew - $18,500
Annalisa has made plenty of finals in big events over recent years, and with a handful of fourth and fifth place finishes, it seems as if this may be the year that we see a breakout performance from the twenty-one year old.
Maggie Voisin - $18,000
Last year, Maggie burst onto the scene, snatching a few third and fourth place finishes before making a big splash at X Games. She placed second in Aspen, with one of the most technical runs ever done in a women's slope contest. She was one of the favorites at the Olympics, but an poor-timed ankle injury derailed those plans. Now fully recovered, the fifteen year old has her sights set on gold.
Kaya Turski - $17,000
Arguably the most consistent girl in the slope game, Kaya Turski has won more high-level contests than many of her competitors have even competed in. After an injury-plagued 2013-14 season, Kaya will be coming back hungry to find her way back to the top spot on the podium.
Dara Howell - $18,000
If her Olympic gold medal isn't enough to convince you, remember that Dara currently holds the top spot in the AFP rankings. The past two years have moved her into elite status among slope girls; it only seems fitting that she will continue that streak. She could easily move past the rest of the pack for a podium finish, if not the win.
Kelly Sildaru - $19,000
Everyone has been waiting to see the twelve-year-old phenom finally be able to compete with the big dogs. She has been slaying every contest she has entered over the past several years, and if weather and speed do not play a factor at the Dew Tour, we would not be surprised to see Kelly finish towards the top.
Nikki Blackall - $18,500
Nikki has been moving up the rankings, thanks in large part to a win at last year's AFP World Championships. Currently ranked tenth by the AFP, we think she is capable of jumping way up the leaderboard.
Devin Logan - $20,500
Devin is consistently finishing in the top three in both halfpipe and slopestyle. She is currently ranked sixth overall for pipe and second for slope, making her a heavy hitter who is essentially a must-add on all teams. Devin makes finals in just about every event she enters, and we like her odds to place highly in both events at Dew.
