Today Whistler was held on Dual Speed and Style, a discipline that combines the dual slalom to slopestyle. The riders start together on what is essentially a path from dual slalom, the difference is that the track has been entered by two big jumps and a wallride slopestyle. At this point the determining factors for victory are two: the speed, the first to arrive wins, but also the style. A jury infati judged the best tricks and jumps on the two walrride. The rider who got the most points would win a bonus of 0.6″ which were then subtracted from the time the final. A mechanism a bit’ complicated but did not stop missing the show today Whistler.
Brendan Fairclough, winner of the contest, on the last jump has staked everything on his famous nac nac (whip with one foot).
The recap of the race
Second Place Andreu Lacondeguy. See live the Spanish rider is a work cosdavvero exciting.
Third Place Kyle Strait, here in action on the wallride.
The speed plays a crucial role in this contest. Across the line with a good margin on the opponent we could ensure victory without bringing home tricks from dizziness. Bernard Kerr has tried to stake everything on the speed in his run against Fairclough but eventually got the better of his compatriot.
Fairclough and Strait almost simultaneously on the wallride.

An evocative moment, expanded over time. Brendan Fairclough runs to the victory as his side Lacondeguy she does a back flip.
To play an important role today was also fortunate to English side of the rider. In the last slalom between the poles Lacondeguy is in fact fell, raising a cloud of dust awesome.
A Lacondeguy dusty course not too happy with what just happened, a blunder that cost him the victory probably seen the trick during his run sciorinati.
But for the opposite sign for Fairclough. Which is an important statement at the end of a season is not exactly brilliant. The rider Scott when he was summoned as a reserve team UK for the World Leogang. Although it is not a victory dh racing is always something that uplifts the morale. Great Brendan!
