After an extra long season on the competition circuit which saw an additional qualification tour for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Mark McMorris has been crowned the 2012/13 Word Snowboard Tour Slopestyle Champion.
After dominating at the the 6star level, which included both the Burton US Open and X Games events Mark beat Snowboarding heavyweights, Peetu Piiroinen and Torstein Horgmo to take home the Slopestyle title. McMorris himself was unaware that he had taken the title until he was told in a press conference after the Slopestyle Final.
“I didn’t know that I won the Tour Championship until I was told in the interview straight after the final, but it’s a real honor to get this award, it means you’re consistent over the season and that gives confidence. I am happy!”
Here is Mark’s round-up from the 2012/13 World Snowboard Tour circuit.
