Jon Olsson Invitational (JOI) once again blows the roof off of freeride skiing. And if there’s one thing to take away from this years event, look no further than Gus Kenworthy’s Switch Triple Rodeo 1440. Yes, a true triple cork rodeo… stomped!
Gus is on a tear… Coming fresh off a win at the Simon Dumont Cup, Mr. Kenworthy rolled right through Are, Sweden with the most progressive freeride skiing trick ever thrown in a competition. What does this mean? Among other things, it means rights to the top spot on the podium.
While living in Telluride, CO years ago I met 11 year old Gus Kenworthy – even then he was pretty much King of the Park. I remember watching him drop his first ever 900 – so stoked to see that the same pure enthusiasm and passion that Gus had then has taken him (and the sport) to where he/it is now. Congrats Gus!
