    Mikkel Bang left no question that he deserved the hefty winner’s check at the first Burton ‘High Fives’ Slopestyle Jam in Wanaka, New Zealand. After a solid first run that placed him atop the standings, he pulled out all the big tricks on his second run (switch backside 1, front 270, back 5, switch back 12, front 10 double, and a backside rodeo 5 stale over the final hip jump) for a 95.40, sealing the win for the young Norwegian.
