TOUGH CONDITIONS WERE NO MATCH FOR SHREDDERS AT 3-STAR NORWEGIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

Geilo, Norway – April 7th, 2008: As one of the few competitions left on the 07/08 Tour, the Swatch TTR 3-Star Norwegian Championships took place this past weekend attracting incredible Norwegian riders who competed in both Halfpipe and Slopestyle formats. Tore Holvik and TTR World No. 4 Kjersti Oestgaard Buaas stood atop the Halfpipe podiums as Gjermund Braaten and Helene Olafsen claimed top honours in the Slopestyle. All top finishing riders bagged 550 TTR ranking points to go along with their TTR Titles.

On the women’s side, Kjersti Oestgard Buaas who currently resides at Swatch TTR World No. 4, confirmed she’s one of the best female riders in the business, taking home the women’s Halfpipe title with a run consisting of a FS Indy, a BS Air, a FS 5 and sick Inverted 7. "The conditions weren’t the best, with bad visibility and a pipe that was a bit bumpy after a whole day of riding, which made it difficult to show your best riding” said Kjersti after her winning run. “But it feels good to win the NC, especially since there were many competitors this year.” Norwegian riders Lisa Wiik and Helene Olafsen took second and third in the women’s Halfpipe behind Kjersti.


Kjersti Buaas was the favourite going into the Slopestyle, but to everyone’s surpsrise, Helene Olafsen took the title. Helene’s run consisted of sick Boardslide combos on the rails and three 360 variations off the kickers. Kjersti still threw down to take second as Swatch TTR World No. 11 Lisa Wiik stood third on the Slopestyle podium.
