Jossi Wells Crowned Overall Due Cup Winner (08-Feb-10)

West Dover, Vermont, Feb 8, 2010 -

Today Jossi Wells walked away with the coveted trophy of freeskiing’s most important event series, the Dew Cup.

Wells' fifth-place finish at the Toyota Championship, coupled with his first- and second-place performances on the rest of the Winter Dew Tour, secured the 19-year-old's first Dew Cup with 260 points in the year-end standings.

Wells edged out Simon Dumont by a mere five points, while Xavier Bertoni took third with 225 points across the three-stop series. 


“It feels amazing to win the Dew Cup,” said Wells.

“I’ve always looked up to Tanner Hall and just to be able to follow in his footsteps and win the Dew Cup the year after him is something I never imagined could happen.”

“I look forward to the Winter Dew Tour next season and for Tanner to be back competing with us again.”

In today’s competition Simon Dumont bested the finals field of 12 to stand upon the last podium of the Winter Dew Tour.

Tucker Perkins, whose first run score stayed on top until the second to last rider [Dumont], measured the highest airs of the day and landed in second. Rounding out the podium was Justin Dorey.  All three podium members utilized the double flips to ward off would-be podium contenders.

Wells kept his double under lock and key today. 900 to right 900 to 540 to right 720 to illlin’ switch 720 shifty to alley oop flatspin 540 was all he needed to lock down that fifth spot, and his Dew Cup title.

After placing fourth in the qualifying rounds with a run that Freeskiing Magazine’s Shay Williams described as “pretty large the entire way down the pipe,”  Jossi’s brother Byron achieved his best-ever result in competition today with a seventh place finish in the SuperPipe finals.

“Byron took a big time spill in practice, fought through the pain [like Maino] and skied well, but toned down to grab the seventh spot,” said Williams.

Earlier in the week, Jossi also competed in the Men’s Slopestyle where he placed eighth landing him in sixth place overall for the three stop series.

The venue at Mt. Snow was challenging, the weather not perfect and the competitions tight.

According to Williams, “Wells, whose first run wasn’t the cleanest, including a few knuckles, was putting down the run of the finals, including a double 1260 that was presumably going into a switch double 1080, but unfortunately he caught an edge and went down just before the last jump.”

Williams continued, “The top part of Jossi’s run was flawless, getting my vote for winning the rails.”

“He had arguably the best run of the day until the final jump when he caught an edge.”
