Saalbach Hinterglemm, Austria – 10th February 2012: Jamie Anderson (USA) won the Roxy Snow Pro slopestyle competition in Saalbach Hinterglemm, Austria tonight, followed by Cheryl Maas (NED) in second and Aimee Fuller (GBR) completing the podium in third place. Each of these ladies were awarded with valuable TTR ranking points and a piece of the $25,000 USD prize purse.
Jamie Anderson was on fire once again and took the 5Star slopestyle title with her best run that consisted of a backside boardslide, Cab 720 nose grab, switch backside 540, backside 360 mute grab and a backside wallride. Jamie commented: “I am so happy to have won the Roxy Snow Pro. All the girls were riding amazing. And, the park crews built a great park set up. It was amazing to ride under the lights at night. I couldn’t be happier!”
The level of riding was set high from the start and Jamie was going head to head with Cheryl Maas. Cheryl put forth a valiant effort, but her best run of a switch 50/50, switch backside 180, backside 720 tail grab, frontside 360 tail grab, 50/50 to switch backside 50/50 wasn’t good enough to beat Jamie Anderson.
With her win here at the Roxy Snow Pro, Jamie bolstered her World No. 1 position in the TTR Slopestyle Tour Rankings and has moved into the top 10 in the TTR Overall Tour Rankings. Isabel Derung’s (SUI) seventh place was good enough to get her up to the World No. 2 position in the TTR Slopestyle Tour Ranking. And, although Cilka Sadar (SLO) ended 20th it is still enough to keep her ranked in World No.1 on the TTR Overall Tour Ranking.
There are four more opportunities for women to grab results in the race to become TTR Slopestyle World Tour Champion. The first chance is the World Snowboarding Championships that kicked of today and run through the 19th of February. The Burton European Open in Laax, Switzerland will immediately follow the WSC from which, the tour continues straight to Nescafé Champs Leysin, Switzerland taking place the 1st-4th of March. The Women’s Slopestyle Tour Champion will be crowned the Burton US Open on March 11th, where the 2011-2012 season comes to an end.
