Rampaging to History: Alex Schlopy Continues to Roll, Triumphs at First-Ever FIS Freestyle World Championship Slopestyle as Del Bosco Grabs Skier X Gold
Oakley’s young ski ripper Alex Schlopy is kickin’ arse, takin’ names and making history…ever so humbly, that is. The Winter X Games Gold Medalist, fresh off a dazzling Big Air victory as an X rookie less than a week before, charged his way into the record books as the first-ever FIS Freestyle World Championship Slopestyle winner on his home turf in Park City, Utah this past week. As the first Slopestyle event held at the World Championship event, it was hugely important for the International Olympic Committee (IOC), who’s currently considering the event for the 2015 Olympic Games. Obviously no pressure.
Rookie Power: Youngster Alex Schlopy Goes Big, Lands Skiing Big Air Gold Before Record Crowd at Winter X 15
41,800. A record Winter X Games crowd…and each and every one of those on hand was electrified by the enormous runs busted out by Oakley ski ripper Alex Schlopy, whose top score of 92 landed him the Ski Big Air Gold in his first-ever appearance at Winter X. His killer switch double cork 14 and a double cork 16, tricks he’d never done before Winter X 15, proved to be unbeatable – taking out last year’s Gold Medalist Bobby Brown.
O Ski Team youngster Alex Schlopy is killin’ it for sure. Haven’t met him? No worries. Check this killer ski promo – properly entitled, “Eyes on Fire.” Then watch out for this charger during the season!
