Foster was riding with an unabashed passion and determination and secured the podium with his third run, which consisted of a massive backflip triple tail whip into quad flip that was easily over 13” and he landed super clean.
Judges awarded the veteran 90.33 for his efforts, which was just shy of the gold medal position forcing Foster, the two-time defending champ, to settle for second place.
“I had a crazy morning and was all stressed out,” admitted Foster after the event. “I lost one of my kneepads and had to put on two different ones, so by the time I got over to the venue, they had already started the contest and I only had five minutes until it was my run.”
“I gave it everything I had on my first run, and each run after that,” continued an astonished Foster. “I think I went higher on my third run, but, I couldn’t have possibly hoped for a better day today,
