Competition kicked off today at the Burton U·S·Open with the legendary Junior Jam presented by Clif Bar, featuring the world’s top up-and-comers ages 14 and under. Brooke D’Hondt of Canada and Valentino Guseli of Australia, both 13 years old, took the girls’ and boys’ titles and earned a spot to compete against the pros in Thursday’s halfpipe semi-finals. Check out these highlights from today’s competition, then sit back and contemplate the level these kids will be riding at in another ten years.
