andrew with place #2 victor, place #3 stepan and all times rail hero justin benne
In spectacular fashion, Andrew Wang battled his way to the top of the podium to take home first at the Nike Snow Jam Finals held in Chaoyang Park of Beijing, China this Saturday. The competition featured two afternoon heats with the country’s top 16 rail riders pushing to impress the judges with their top tricks in order to make it through to the evening’s finals. The heats saw Andrew Wang, Zhang Wei, Wang Lei, Jay, Kuso, Victor and Stepan throwing down some serious bangers on the setup to make it through, much to the delight of the huge crowd that turned out to be entertained not only by the riding but with hot chocolate, Skullcandy beats and some sweet prize tosses. The Russian contingent were riding strong, Stepan earning 3rd place with a 360-on to the downrail in his tricklist, while Victor placed 2nd with a wide array of technical tricks on the downrail. It was Andrew Wang however who reigned king of the rails, showing class with some banger tricks thrown down both regular and switch, including a huge 270-on to tailpress on the downrail, a 180-on hardway 360 off, 270-offs in every way imaginable and some stylish presses and combos. Andrew finished first and 15,000 RMB richer, with a ticket to the Nike Chosen Finals in Austria next month – nice one bro!
