With his second slopestyle win in as many days, Maine native and Frisco resident freeskier Kiernan Fagan on Friday won the overall season championship for the U.S. Revolution Tour’s men’s ski slopestyle division.

The 18-year-old Fagan — twin brother of fellow elite up-and-coming American skier Deven Fagan — topped the podium on Friday at Woodward Park City along with Peter Raich and Tim Ryan. The Revolution Tour championship cements Kiernan as one of the country’s best up-and coming skiers, as the Rev Tour is regarded as the level just beneath the World Cup circuit. Kiernan was already on the U.S. Freeski Pro Team this year while Deven was on the Rookie Team.

The day before, Deven joined Kiernan as the brothers finished first and second in Thursday’s Woodward Park City Rev Tour competition.

As for the rest of the results at the Woodward Park City Rev Tour, Team Summit 15-year-old Jenna Riccomini advanced to finals at Friday’s Rev Tour women’s ski slopestyle final, finishing in sixth.

On Tuesday, Kiernan earned third place in the Rev Tour ski big air competition. Riccomini finished in fourth place in Tuesday’s women’s ski big air competition.
