Mick Dierdorff: Two Time World Champion

For Dierdorff the gold was World Championship win number two, coming hot on the heels of his victory on day one of the competition in the men’s snowboardcross event.
“I don’t think anything changes as far as mindset,” said the newly crowned double-World Champ. “Especially dropping first. It feels like a normal boardercross heat. More so, it changes for the second person. You don’t know if you will be coming out of the gate last and have all this ground to make up, like what happened today for Lindsey. Your mindset in a normal heat is to get out in front early, and to turn that into a hunt and chasing a rabbit out in front of you changes things. In addition, the fresh snow also changes conditions as we had to figure out how to ride the course in a different way at a different speed.”
