Sarka Pancochova Wins Women’s Snowboard Slope Semis

A field of 15 women competed on the snowboard slopestyle course during Friday’s Winter Dew Tour, looking for a spot among the top five that advance to Sunday’s Final. Czech rider Sarka Pancochova started off the first semifinal action of the weekend right with a win in women’s snowboard slope semifinals. Pancochova’s run of half cab boardslide to 50 50, 50 50 to front boardslide into a 50 50 indy off the cannon box, capped with a frontside 360 and stylish backside 360 indy grab poked to perfection, impressed judges for a score of 87.33.  Enni Rukajarvi (86.00) and Julianne Brackett (83.67) finished second and third respectively.  The top five will meet up with Spencer O’Brien in the Toyota Championships final.
