Snowboarding - 21. January 2008.

Anderson takes Burton Title

Laax, Switzerland: It was a gorgeous day in Laax Switzerland as the leading Women fought for the Tour lead in the Slopestyle finals at the Swatch TTR SIX(6)STAR Burton European Open. Jamie Anderson (USA) took home the BEO Slopestyle Title. Jenny Jones (GBR) however, finished second in the slopestyle, which moved her into TTR World No. 1, just 3 points ahead of now TTR World No. 2 Jamie Anderson.

Snowboarding fans and judges saw big tricks come from the day’s top riders in the Women’s field, taking progression to a whole new level. With Anderson stomping huge 540s off the kickers, busting out sick eggplants on the Quarterpipe and bringing back her buttery rail combos, there was no question as to why she won the Title. Jenny Jones landed huge 3s and a FS540 off the bigger kicker line, coming in second, as Silvia Mittermueller (GER) rounded out the Top 3 with sick alley-oops, big 7s and technical rail combos.

06/07 Tour Champion Torah Bright (AUS) who finished 9th overall in the Slopestyle has moved into Swatch TTR World No. 3 ahead of Elizabeth Beerman (USA) who is now World No. 4. Kelly Clark (USA) did not compete in the BEO Slopestyle and thus has been bumped down to TTR World No. 5.

All the major TTR women riders will be bringing out the big guns, as there are only a few more opportunities to post their best SIX(6)STAR results and claim that desirable Swatch TTR World Championship Title and a piece of the $250 000 USD TTR prize purse.

Jamie Anderson didn’t make the Halfpipe finals, but finished 9th overall in Halfpipe, which earns her enough TTR Ranking points to move to World No. 1. Therefore, the battle for World No. 2 will shift over to Bright and Clark. Both girls are favourites going into the finals, so look for huge amplitude from Kelly and technical finesse from Torah.
