Burton NZ Open
The New Zealand Open’s slopestyle qualifiers took place yesterday, and although weather ended the event before they had a chance to take their second run, Shred Betties team riders Joanna Dzierzawski, Megan Ginter, and Aimee Fuller are currently in the top four. Their second qualifier run was postponed, so stay tuned to see who moves on to compete with invited pro riders including Jamie Anderson, Lisa Wiik, Cheryl Maas, Silvia Mittermuller, and Spencer O’Brien, and Chanelle Sladics. Team riders Mackenzie Matters and Kyla Sobieralski will also be competing in the Halfpipe Qualifiers… good luck girls!
