Oh Canada…just got owned by the Oakley Women’s Snowboard Team. Lead by the Big O’s Spanish ripper, Queralt Castellet, the Halfpipe Podium at the Canadian Open was rounded out by fellow Oakley riders Gretchen Bleiler and Ellery Hollingsworth for a full sweep. It was Q’s second run of the Finals on Friday night that locked in her resounding victory – throwing down a frontside 900, backside 540 mute, frontside 540, backside air and her very first fronside 1080 for an 84.73 to seal the deal.
The winter’s first snowboard halfpipe contest, Grand Prix at Copper, saw Oakley teammates Maddy Shaffrick and Queralt Castellet, standing side-by-side on the podium in second and third place, respectively.
