Queenstown board rider Tiarn Collins, who was forced to miss the 2018 Winter Olympics with a shoulder injury, upstaged a quality slopestyle field at the Calgary Snow Rodeo.

I can’t believe it. It’s one of my first slopestyles back since I did my shoulder and had all those injuries. I’ve been off for a couple of years so it feels good to be back - a win’s insane,” he said.

A different discipline, but 30-year-old Claire McGregor probably feels the same after winning in Montafon, Austria.

Her third victory this season on the qualifying tour has assured her a place on next year's Freeride World Tour.
