Olympic Outlook: Ty qualified second for the US team and was the most consistent US rider after Jamie Anderson during the Dew Tour and Grand Prix selection events. Her go-to line on the jumps includes a Cab 540 tail grab and corked-out backside 720 mute, which are both smooth. If she keeps going big on all her tricks she'll be in a good place.
Potential Downfall: Adding a switch 720 or two 720s into a run is quickly becoming the standard in women's slope riding. Ty will need to step up her Olympic run with something more tech to beat the other ladies.
