2016 Freestyle Nationals Results

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - Ontario's Simcoe County experienced a great deal of excitement during the week of Mar. 7 to Mar. 13, 2016, as riders from all over Canada gathered for the 2016 Freestyle Nationals. That weekend, Mount St. Louis Moonstone held both a Slopestyle and Halfpipe competition while Horseshoe Resort held a Big Air competition. 

It was an action packed week resulting in several of Alberta's riders receiving medals in all three categories. In the men's Jr. Halfpipe competition, first place went to Owen Wopnford, second place went to Mikey Seguin and third place went to Jack Collins; an overall very successful event for the men's Halfpipe competitors.

Aside from the medals, Jack Collins won the "Sky Diver" award for the highest amplitude in the Halfpipe contest. The first place in women's Jr. Halfpipe went to Kira Lengkeek, who also took home the third place for the women's Halfpipe Open event. 

The Slopestyle competition was equally as successful for Alberta's riders. The men's Jr. Slopestyle competition had Taylor Duszynski in second place, Josh Reeves in third and Sean Miskiman, who came in fourth.

Josh Reeves also took home the overall first place for the 2016 Air Nation Series Slopestyle. This was a great achievement as this titled involved a great performance at three different stops including: Ontario's Mount St. Louis Moonstone, Banff's Sunshine Village and Whistler Blackcomb.

The entire weekend was filled with exciting events for Alberta's up-and-coming riders, as they showcased their skills against other snowboarders from across Canada. For the first, a Big Air competition was included as one of the events. Alberta's Javis Carter took home first place and topped off what was already a remarkable few days. 

Alberta Snowboarding Association is proud of all the riders who competed at this event. It is an honor to represent such remarkably talented individuals who challenge themselves each and every day.
