In the world's biggest freeskiing and snowboarding competition, Woodsy stepped up his skiing to another level to take the win last night. Woodsy's gold medal followed his 4th place in Ski Slopestyle earlier in the day, where a small mistake on one of the rails costs him the win. An X Games gold has been one of Woodsy's goals for a long time, after taking bronze in X Games Ski Slopestyle back in 2013.
Woodsy's win followed a bronze medal for in-form Katie Ormerod (19, Brighouse) in the X Games Snowboard Slopestyle yesterday. Another huge result for Ormerod followed her 5th place in the Big Air on Thursday.
Ormerod said after her medal: "I'm super happy to get my 1st X Games medal!! It's always been on my bucket list to medal here so I couldn't be happier! Especially to medal in the most high profile event of the season in such a tough and progressive field of riders."
