Canadians dominated the halfpipe competition at the Copper, Colorado World Cup yesterday as Mike Riddle finished at the top of the podium in men’s competition and Rosalind Groenewoud finished second in the women’s field.

Riddle, a native of Spruce Grove, AB scored a high of 91.2 during the two run format to grab the gold medal and finish well ahead of Aaron Blunck and David Wise of the US who scored 87.0 and 83.6 respectively.

“I didn’t land my runs clean in qualifications,” said Riddle, the current world champion.  “I was very lucky to get into finals as the last guy, and so today in the conditions I was just trying to put down as clean a run as possible and it worked out for me. I’ve been doing this run a lot and so I’m really confident with it and I was able to execute today very smoothly which meant I could maintain speed.”

Groenewoud of Calgary, scored 79.2 to win silver and improve on her third place finish from the Dew Cup in December.
