And the success for the GB Park & Pipe team didn’t end there. Jamie Nicholls also bagged a silver in the Slopestyle World Cup in Seiser Alm, Italy, only narrowly missing out on the top spot of the podium to Belgian wonderkid Seppe Smits. Britain’s Billy Morgan finished just out of the medals in 4th, with Rowan Coultas nabbing 7th. Over in women’s Slopestyle, Aimee Fuller also narrowly missed out on the podium, placing 5th overall.
