Snowboarders tackle Junior Worlds

Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club

— A trio of Steamboat Springs snowboarders got their first tastes of the Junior World Championships over the weekend, racing in snowboarding events in Klinovec, Czech Republic.

Myles Silverman was 20th in a junior world championships parallel giant slalom event on Monday, just ahead of Steamboat Springs brothers Billy Winters, 21st, and Cody Winters, 24th.

Billy Winters also raced during the weekend in a snowboard cross event at the championships, placing 51st. He also raced in a snowboard cross team event.

He was paired with Park City rider Chadwick Frey, and together, the team placed 20th. U.S. teammates Jake Vedder and Senna Leith won that event.

One event remains on the schedule — a parallel slalom set for Tuesday.
