Bothriders are from Bend but have competed in several snowboard events atMeadows. DeWilde won last year’s Vegetate Big Air competition, andRudishauser placed 5th in last year’s Vegetate Slope Style competition.DeWilde and Rudishauser not only pocket the $300 first prize, but won slotsin the Vegetate Half Pipe competition April 30th.

Rudishauser combined a very smooth riding technique to qualify for thefinals, and then demonstrated some aggressive air born moves during the twojump final rounds. DeWilde showed amplitude from his first qualifying run,and won the event with the highest score of the day in the finals withdouble grabs, pumps, and plenty of spins.

Meadows riders Sydney Nelson of Portland and Mike Estes of Welches took home$200 with their second place finishes in their divisions.
