It was a perfect day up on the Dachstein glacier in Austria for the 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, where riders were greeted with bluebird skies, warm weather and light winds. The day kicked off with men’s and women’s slopestyle semi-final rounds in the morning and finished off with finals in the afternoon. Reigning TTR Tour Champion, Enni Rukajärvi (FIN) grabbed the title which boosted her into the women’s TTR World Ranking lead. Rukaiarvi earned 500 Swatch TTR Ranking Points and left the glacier with a healthy slice of the $20,000 USD prize purse.
Enni Rukajärvi reclaimed her TTR World No.1 position after today’s slopestyle victory, putting her in an excellent place before the height of the Northern Hemisphere winter, which kicks off in January. Rukajärvi was untouchable in the finals and stomped every trick textbook style in her final run, which consisted of a huge Cab 540, frontside 360 and a backside 540. Rukajärvi was very excited at the end of the day and is looking forward to the upcoming season, “I plan to ride all the 6Star and some of the 5Star TTR events, so that I get the seven results I need”. Rounding out the podium were up-and-coming riders, British Aimee Fuller in second place and 16-year old Katarzyna Rusin (POL) in third place, both now in the TTR Top 30.
