World Cup slopestyle silver for Woods in Quebec

13 February 2017 / 11:03

Great Britain’s James Woods continued his recent run of form with a silver medal at the latest World Cup ski slopestyle in Quebec.

The 25-year-old achieved a career dream when he picked up gold in the ski big air at the X Games in Aspen last month.

And he was back on the podium on Sunday after scoring a best of 93.80 on his second run.

Victory went to Swiss skier Andri Ragettli who topscored on 94.60 to also take the yellow World Cup leaders bib.

Home favourite Alex Beaulieu-Marchand completed the podium marginally behind Woods on 93.40.

Woods, who lies second in the World Cup ski slopestyle standings with one competition left, said: "I kept it pretty mellow as I wanted to do a run I knew I could land.

"I'm here to collect points but it's so good to know this type of run is still at the top."

Meanwhile in the snowboarding slopestyle Britain’s Katie Ormerod just missed out on another podium when she finished fourth on 64.93, 2.5 points behind Brooke Voigt in third. Julia Marino took the win on 76.43.
