Victory for Woods

January 12, 2013 22:53 pm

Sheffield slopestyle star James Woods claimed his second consecutive World Cup win of the season in Copper Mountain, the United States.

Woods completed a dominant weekend by posting a score of 93.4, well ahead of Australia's Russell Henshaw with Alex Marchand-Beaulieu of Canada in third.

Woods also won the season-opening World Cup in Argentina in September - becoming the first Briton to win a World Cup on snow in eight years.

His win extends his lead at the top of the World Cup standings and virtually guarantees qualification for next year's Sochi Winter Olympics, where slopestyle will appear for the first time.
