The semi-finals of the Winter Dew Tour took place today in Snowbasin, Utah. An overcast day and warm temperatures weren't ideal conditions but the riders and Snowbasin were out in force and ready for the competition.
Xavier Bertoni, Benoit Valentin and Joffrey Pollet Villard all entered the elimination round super motivated to compete in the last Dew Tour stop for the season. With two clean runs, Xavier and Joffrey both skied hard but were unable to break into the top ten against a tough field.
Ben Valentin (with broken fingers...) held on with two strong runs to take 6th place, which puts him in a great position for the finals tomorrow.
Go Ben !!!
