QUOTES
Tom Wallisch

I’m not much of a go for broke, last run huck yourself, try something new kind of guy. I’d rather see skiing be smoother. Just full, complete, good runs. I never really try to huck myself second run. I just go for cleaning it up. Making is as smooth as possible. And it’s worked for me in the past, so I’m going to keep doing it.

Bobby Brown
I was struggling on the course the last few days. I’m just stoked that I’m on the podium, and Goepper and Wallisch killed it today. I’m just happy to end the Dew Tour on the podium.
