QUOTES Kelly Clark I really had to stay focused on what I came up to do today. Some of my favorite contests that I can remember are when Gretchen and I go head to head and run to run.
Dew Tour puts on some of the best venues that we go to. For me it’s all about the conditions of the halfpipe, and this is one of the best pipes I’ve ridden all year. I’m happy to do so well and to win the Dew Cup.
