10 Things We Learned from the Dew Tour

What’s equally interesting is that the man who stole Shaun’s crown wasn’t Ayumu, iPod, or one of the usual pretenders to the throne. Rather it was his own US team-mate Greg Bretz, who along with Taylor Gold mounted a concerted assault on the “old guard” of American pipe riding.

I’m sure Shaun’s not too worried about securing his berth for Sochi, but if I was Louie Vito, Scotty Lago, Danny Davis or whichever of the seemingly interchangeable Mitrani brothers it is that still competes, I’d be looking over my shoulder at this pair.

Similarly in this first US qualifier Gretchen Bleiler didn’t exactly cover herself in glory, finishing down in 6th, while Hannah Teter – who’s previously won a gold and a silver medal and would love to be in Sochi – wasn’t even in the final.
