X Games rookie Christiansen wins injury-filled Women’s Slopestyle at Winter X Games

Winter_X_Games_logo.svgTiril Sjastad Christiansen may be an X Games rookie, but she performed like a veteran to win the Women’s Ski Slopestyle on Sunday (Jan. 27) at Winter X Games in Aspen.

Christiansen overcame a first-run fall to post successive runs above 90, including the winning 92.3 on her final run. Speaking of final runs, two-time defending champ Kaya Turski overcame falls on her first two runs to post a 90 for second place on her final run. Dara Howell’s 89.s second run was enough for bronze.

Ashley Battersby was doubly unlucky. First, she was injured on a fall at the end of her final run, then she lost her place on the podium when Turski had her strong final run. Before the race, Rose Battersby (no relation to Ashley) took a bad fall and was taken to the Aspen hospital for “further evaluation for back pain.” Read more.
