Jamie Nicholls backed up his sixth place at the Winter Olympics in Sochi by finishing fifth in the Burton US Open in Vail, Colorado.

The 20-year-old slopestyler from Queensbury said: “I’m stoked to have done so well. Also, it was the first time held in Vail too.

“I thought the whole event was amazing and super good fun. I hope I get invited back next year.”
