The Olympic gold medalist seemed to be even more relaxed than we have seen in recent times breezing through the rail section with her typically mellow style, sliding away from each trick as if she never left the ground.
Showing no signs of someone who was laying motionless at the bottom of an 80-foot jump just the other night, the 26-year-old then sped towards the first of three jumps boosting a switch frontside 720 tail before absolutely launching one of the smoothest switch backside 540 Indy grabs she has ever landed in competition. Capping off her run with a lofty frontside 720, Anderson rode away as clean as she started – no hand flaps, no reverts, nothing – just pure style.
Though she didn’t break out her usual big tricks, as far as style goes, the run was flawless and the judges awarded her a well-deserved 91.33.
“I’m just hyped to even ride today after that gnarly crash the other night,” said Anderson afterwards. “I’m super grateful just to be out here.”
