Sarka Pancochova The New Czech kid on the block!

 

By: TTR Press Office

Innsbruck, Austria - 27 November: Sarka Pancochova is the new rising star on the Swatch TTR Women’s Tour, and with seasoned vets like Tina Ramholt (SUI) and Martin Cernik (CZE) pushing her to step up, it’s no surprise that this 18 year old Czech Rider is fast rising up the ranks. 

 

 

Sarka grew up putting in the hours at her local mountain, Morava Pico in Czech, where she fast developed into one of the craziest little rippers on the mountain, going huge off the kickers and hitting gnarly rails with the best of them.  Looking at Sarka’s early contest results you can see that she dominated most of the local contests she entered, and as is the story with the TTR groms, if you dominate your local contest scene, it’s only a matter of time before the sponsors come banging on your door and your rising up the ranks.  The sponsors did indeed come a calling, and before she knew it she was jet-setting round the globe, showing the world what Czech shredding is all about. 



In 07/08 Sarka gained huge recognition outside of the Czech Republic, taking out the 3Star Quiksilver Snowjam and 3Star Protest World Rookie Fest, whilst also posting a tonne of other sick results, showing Europe, and the world that she was going to a force to be reckoned with.  She spent her summer in New Zealand and Saas Fee training for this year’s Northern Hemisphere events and the hard work paid off for her at 4Star Pleasure Jam, in Dachstein, where she unleashed a silky smooth Switch BS 180 and BS 7, backed up by another FS 7, to claim 1st place and announce her arrival to the big leagues.

 

Sarka’s the No1 female representing Czech right now and with skills and abilities like hers it’s not unlikely that she’ll be fast rising up the ranks this season, battling it out with the girls she’s grown up idolizing.  She knows it’s only a matter of time before a Czech female breaks into the top 5, and when we asked her when this might happen, her ambitious cheeky response “Maybe this year!”

 

This girl has got snowboarding in the blood, and with points already posted, a top 20 ranking, and a desire to push female riding to the next level (read: double back flips) eyes will be glued to Sarka at this year’s Roxy Chicken Jam as she rolls into town, ready to battle with her snowboarding heroes.

 


We also recently caught up with Sarka to get the lowdown on what motivates her to ride and how she came up through the ranks, so check out her rider profile for the full story.
