A Pepper rider, a contest heavyweight, and Rome’s newest am walk into a bar… THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.

It isn’t much of a shocker that Rome will tap Stale Sandbech for the team challenge, but after that, the lineup gets pretty interesting. Pepper closer Ozzy Henning will be dawning a bib and helmet for team Rome in the slopestyle jib portion of the Dew Tour Team Challenge and Rome’s new Finnish am Rene Rinnekangas will step up to the Modified Superpipe. If their riding is on par with what we have become accustom to, Rome will be a strong contender when the scores are tallied up next Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017.
