JENNY JONES TAKES 2nd AT DEW TOUR

02.08.10 Jenny Jones took a close second and Jamie Anderson took first place in the Dew Tour winning the final competition at the Toyota Championship this week. Proving that they are closing the gender gap the girls contest was held in icy difficult conditions and rode the same course as the Men's competitors in an exciting showdown between Billabong's two top team riders.
Jamie Anderson took an early lead, landing a clean first run. Coming fresh off her X-Games win, Jenny Jones executed a strong series of maneuvers giving her just enough for second place. With Dew Cup ratings open for both first and third, The ladies really stepped it up. Jamie went first and threw one of the best female slopestyle runs in Dew Tour history, scoring a record-breaking 96.25. Not only was she tail-pressing and completing picture perfect board-slides and front boards on the rails, but her jumps really set her above the field. Jamie landed a giant switch backside 540, and continued on to a frontside 720, lofty backside 180 combo. When the results came on the scoreboard Jamie had just clinched the Dew Cup. When asked about her win, Jamie said it was all about the girls cheering each other on and really supporting each other and having fun. "The course was a bit scary, but in really good shape today and the conditions were much better than they have been. Today was really fun and I'm excited for everyone." Jamie is just coming off a silver medal at Winter X games and Jenny a Gold medal. It is another huge accomplishment for both of these girls, and Bong congratulates them on a stellar year.
