By February 3, 2013

Follow me on:

Hannah Kearney proved she's back in full World Cup mode by progressing through the Visa Freestyle International dual mogul brackets, and going head-to head with the best and coming out on top for her second straight win at Deer Valley Resort. Justine Dufour-LaPointe of Canada was second with Yulia Galysheva third.

In the men's event, Canadian Alex Bilodeau took the top spot with two USA men Patrick Deneen second and Bradley Wilson landing a career first podium in third place.

Under the lights, thousands of enthusiastic fans cheered the competitors and a firework display closed Deer Valley's annual World Cup stop. The Visa Freestyle International will air on NBC Saturday, Feb. 9 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Coverage of dual moguls is set for Saturday, Feb. 9 at 4:00 p.m. on the NBC Sports Network.

The U.S. Freestyle Ski Team will now head to Steamboat Springs for training camp in preparation for the Olympic test event in Sochi Feb. 15.

With both Visa Freestyle International and the Sprint Freeskiing Grand Prix finished, Park City can rest up until February 25 - March 2, when Canyons Resort plays host for the third year to the Sprint U.S. Snowboarding & Freeskiing Grand Prix where the world's best male and female Snowboardcross (SBX) and Skicross (SX) riders race head-to-head in always exciting competition.
