Dew Tour - Sun Peaks, March 27-29
Calgary Freeriderz Mark Hendrickson was honoured to be invited to the inaugural Dew Tour Am Series comp at Sun Peaks Ski Resort. Being an invited athlete comes with the perks of lift ticket, entry fee and even a cash to help you get to the event. It also allows the athlete to by-pass qualifiers and go right to finals.
The Dew tour treated athletes like royalty with a welcome dinner as well as copious amounts of food plus all the Mountain Dew you can drink over the three days. The weather was a mixed bag of sun, snow, sleet and rain so it was a little challenging. Finals consisted of 20 athletes - the top 10 qualifiers from day one as well as the 10 pre-qualified guest. After finishing in 2nd place from his first run, Mark had an equally great second run holding on to a second place podium finish and his share of $20K in prize money plus a great trophy! Mark has now been invited to compete in WSI AFP World Championship’s during the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler BC in April. You Go Mark!
Despite the free concert featuring The Sheep Dogs, Mark was eager to get to Silverstar and watch his brother and fellow Freeriderz in finals at the Showdown Throwdown Hoedown.
