Was it Risto or Regina? Watch the Bracket Challenge final round video

Todd Ristorcelli and Regina Jaquess faced off in the final round of the GOODE Virtual Water Ski Bracket Challenge in a head-to-head match-up last week in Ogden, Utah.

To see who won, watch the broadcast-style video above. It also reveals the winners of the 3rd round and grand prize (a FREE Nano OneXT) fan contests, as well as our plans for an even bigger bracket challenge in 2014.

The winning streak continues.  Regina Jaquess took her second consecutive Open Women’s Diablo Shores Pro-Am slalom title, running her winning streak to 18 months in the process.

Regina topped Whitney McClintock, 1 buoy at 41-feet off to 1-1/2 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off in the head-to-head finals to earn the victory. In the previous round Regina tied her own world record of 3 buoys at 41-feet off to advance against fellow Team GOODE skier April Coble-Eller, who finished third. Karen Truelove took fifth, tying Whitney in the first head-to-head round but Whitney advanced because she went off the dock first.

14-year old GOODE skier Bailey Austin made her pro debut at Diablo, advancing to the finals but drawing Regina in the first round.  Already the No. 1 ranked U.S. skier in Girls 3, it probably won’t be the last pro final for Bailey, whose PB is 4 buoys at 38-feet off.

In Open Men’s Thomas Degasperi (4th) and Nick Parsons (3rd) made it to the Final Four, before bowing out to Chris Parrish and Nate Smith, respectively.  Nate beat Chris in the finals to earn the Open Men’s title.  Team GOODE skier Freddie Winter had a great showing in his first pro U.S. event, finishing 6th after earning the fourth seed going into the finals and pushing Thomas before ultimately losing to him.  At 23, Freddie was the youngest skier in the finals.  Carlo Allais also made it into the finals, finishing seventh.

Mike Martens won the amateur event, giving GOODE skiers the amateur title for the second-consecutive year and two of the four titles contested this past week.

Ristorcelli, Regina to face off in Bracket Challenge final round

Slalom fans are in for a treat as No. 1 seed Todd Ristorcelli is set to face off against the world’s No. 1 female slalom skier, Regina Jaquess, in the final round of the GOODE Virtual Water Ski Bracket ChallengeTM.  The championship match up will take place during a record-capability tournament Sept. 10-11, at GOODE Ski Lake in Ogden, Utah.

While Todd made it into the finals by posting a score of 2 buoys at 41-feet off at the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour Finals, it was the skier he ultimately edged that put in perhaps the most inspiring performance of the Bracket Challenge.  On a 39-1/2 off pass he needed to run to ultimately challenge Todd’s 41- off score, Kyle Tate was late rounding five ball but made a big charge across the wakes and attempted to throw his ski around six ball, unfortunately breaking his lower leg in the process and ending his Bracket Challenge chances.

In the other Final Four bracket, Chad Scott held a one buoy lead over Regina heading into the Cedar Ridge tournament, which they both skied in.  On Saturday Regina scored 3 at 41 to tie Chad, and then something pretty cool happened.

Instead of letting the contest rules determine the bracket winner (tie goes to the highest seed), they decided to use the second round on Sunday, Regina’s last round of the day, as a winner-take-all.  Regina seized the opportunity and beat Chad, 2 buoys at 41 off to his half buoy at the same line length.

Nano OneXT bags new tournament PB on very first set

Mark Munson got home from Nationals and discovered that Southwest Airlines had broken his ski. That’s bad enough, but the fact that he had a tournament the very next day made it even worse.

So what did he do? He jumped on a brand new, out-of-the-box Nano OneXT and proceeded to improve his PB by a buoy-and-a-half on his very first set on the ski.

WHAT’S YOUR NEXT?

Get it with the all new GOODE Nano OneXTTM

Prepare yourself for the best skiing of your life with the new Nano OneXT, a ski that takes the performance-proven Nano One and does the seemingly impossible – makes it even better.

How did we top a ski that won more major titles than any other ski during the past year? How about even better turns and off-the-charts cross-course speed?

AsymRockerTM

The Nano OneXT introduces the groundbreaking AsymRocker, an asymmetrical rocker technology that will forever change ski design. The AsymRocker features different rockers for your on-side and off-side turns, completely eliminating any differences between the two turns. No matter which side of the course you are on, the ski’s all-important “kick point” has the right amount of rocker in it, leading to smoother, more consistent turns that build angle and add buoys.

Genius BevelsTM

Everyone loves cross-course speed, especially when you can link them up with Ferrari-like turns. The Nano OneXT features two advancements that get skiers to the next buoy quicker, wider and earlier.

First, our newly enhanced Genius Bevels work in perfect harmony with our new AsymRocker and legendary Nano One shape to increase cross-course speed while improving up-course tracking.

Second, and most importantly, is the role the AsymRocker plays in cross-course speed. A central theory of ski design holds that flatter skis are faster and skis with more rocker turn better. For decades, ski designers have had to make compromises between these two characteristics, resulting in skis that met their potential in neither speed nor turning. Until now. The Nano OneXT’s AsymRocker allows the ski to be flatter than the Nano One – adding speed – while employing more rocker to enhance turnability. Simply put, the Nano OneXT does both. Better.

The Nano OneXT – Our next.

When you’ve held a world slalom record since 1996, you get used to having to measure yourself against a pretty high standard of performance. With the Nano OneXT, we’ve achieved our “next.”
