Canadian snowboarders O'Brien, Parrot win slopestyle event at Dew Tour

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — Canada's Spencer O'Brien won the women's snowboard slopestyle event at the Dew Tour Saturday while Canadian Max Parrot topped the men's podium.

O'Brien, from Courtenay, B.C., layed down a 95-point monster second run that lifted her into first place in the eight-woman final.

American Jamie Anderson was second with 93.33 points and Finland's Enni Rukajarvi was third with 92.

The best score of three runs counts as a rider's final score.

Canadian Laurie Blouin took falls in all three of her runs to finish eighth with a top score of 28.

The 29-year-old O'Brien, who finished 12th when slopestyle made its Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Games, started her day with a 35-point first run.

O'Brien wrapped up with a 30.66-point third run but had to wait for Anderson's final run — a 31 — before locking up first place.

It was O'Brien's fifth Dew Tour title.

On the men's side, Parrot's second run score of 97 was enough to take the Dew Tour title. Chris Corning of the United States took silver with 95 points and Norway's Mons Roisland was third.

Two-time Dew Tour champion Mark McMorris of Regina scored 82.33 points for an eighth-place finish in the 12-man final. Other Canadians Darcy Sharpe and Tyler Nicholson were sixth and 10th, respectively.

Parrot, a 23-year-old from Bromont, Que., finished fifth in slopestyle at the Sochi Olympics. McMorris took bronze.
