More stadium rocking action is on the menu on the12th of February, when the Nike 6.0 Air & Style Munich goes off in true 6Star style. The season won’t loose any steam with another 6Star event around the corner and The Oakley Arctic Challenge will take place shortly after in Norway. In Europe one more 5Star event, the Burn River Jump, will make fans scream in Italy at the end of February. The tour will wrap up with the men’s and women’s Swatch TTR Tour Champions crowned at the 6Star Burton US Open, running from March 7th to 13th. See below for a compete list of 6Star and 5Star events.
New 6Star Results Available and a Fresh Final 6Star Event for Women
Two major events, The Oakley Arctic Challenge and the O’Neill Evolution, will both be opening 6Star slopestyle formats for women this season. With the loss of the Roxy Chicken Jam events from the tour, this is a great opportunity for the women to conquer new terrain and bank TTR results. The women are also looking forward to having the female TTR Champion crowned alongside the men’s ceremony at the Burton US Open. One Life crew member, Kjersti Buaas (NOR), and a regular at TTR events says, “It makes more sense to award the men’s and women’s TTR title at the same event and I think it is a better solution, because we get to celebrate with the boys. I also think the US Open is a great event.”
6Star Halfpipe and Slopestyle Events Will All Feature SLS Judging
The Snowboarding Live Scoring System, or SLS, is a new judging system developed over three years and launched successfully during the 6Star TTR event, The Oakley Arctic Challenge slopestyle, held in Oslo, March 2010. The 2010 5Star Burton New Zealand Open also adopted the SLS system, and was the first event to bring SLS into the halfpipe. The new system combines a sharp focus on individual tricks with overall impression using trick judges and flow judges. The SLS system creates an easy to follow and clear to compare scoring path, which shows how the run’s result were achieved. All 6Star events that feature halfpipe and slopestyle will utilize the new SLS system and viewers will be able to follow the system via live webcast.
