When asked to name a standout from the week, most riders mentioned 18-year-old tour newbie Chase Josey, from Hailey, Idaho.

"Chase was a big standout," Taylor Gold said. "He was just blowing my mind all week. Watching him was just like, 'What are you doing? That's just insane.'"

"I didn't even know him [before this event]," Arthur Longo said. "But he's been really impressive. I love his riding."

The judges must have agreed, because in a contest stacked with halfpipe riding veterans, Josey landed in the second-place spot.
