Sweep: Snowboard Ripper Queralt Castellet Tops Oakley-Dominated Podium at LG Snowboard FIS World Cup Halfpipe
Oakley loves its brooms. With yet another podium sweep, the O Women’s Snowboard Team dominated the LG Snowboard FIS World Cup Halfpipe Contest – lead by Spanish ripper Queralt Castellet, who claimed her second World Cup victory with a 87 point score to top fellow O Rider Sophie Rodriguez. The tiny charger threw down a frontside air to backside 540, frontside 540, backside air and frontside 720 – topped off with some major height and an ultra-clean run – to take out the field.
The early season is upon us. And there’s no better way to drop into what’s set to be another all-time Oakley Team year than having the future of Norwegian Snowboarding utterly shred Saas Fee in Switzerland. O’s young star Stale Sandbech, anointed the Heir Apparent of Scandinavian Snowboard Royalty, definitely exudes Oakley style and rippage to the max.
