Snow Team rider Andrew Roth competed in the Dew Hutr Jam at Mt Buller a couple of weekends ago. It's a team even and Rothy and his team mate Kieran McLachlan were ripping in the warm…. unfortunately Kireran injured himself and was unable to compete, leaving Rothman to go at it alone.
Roth threw down some solid tricks in the main even, but riding solo put him up against the odd's. All riders were killing it with a rad purse of $10k up for grabs. Team Burton consisting of Jye Kearney and Chris de Campo took home the cash . Best team trick went to Team K2 and the Gatorade Rookie prize which Rothy was well in the running for ended up going to Jye Kearney.
Check the highlights below and some shots of Rothy sending it on one of the funnest setups of the Aus Comp calendar.
