2 x 2. place!

26 02 2010

It was a killer of a superfinal with me, Eric, Mark and Yale in it..

I went to finals against Yale Cousino and I stomped my first run claiming the highest score of the day! Bs 10 doublecork, bs rodeo and a sw bs boardslide..

In the second run I fell and was standing at the bottom watching Yale coming down towards the kicker.. He started off with the biggest bs 12 late cork of the day and continued poking out a cab 5 into a bs 2 on a the barrel!

We stood next to each other waiting for the score and boom, he got the best score of the day and won the contest!

Big ups to Mark McMorris on 3. and Eric Willett on 4. Now it’s partytime..

Stooooooked:D

Burn RiverJump Livigno

25 02 2010

Today the TTR 5 star slopestyle went down here in Livigno, Italy.. The setup was a tree-jib, a flatbox to barrel-tap, then a three kicker line that was insane..

I landed my best slopestylerun ever today and that got me a 2. place! I learned the fs doublecork 10 in practice yesterday and it feels GOOD! 3 out of 4 doublecorks now.. Hope to get the sw bs one as well before the snow melts;)

Eric Willet from USA won with sw bs 12, fs doublecork 10, bs doublerodeo 9.

My run was cab 9, fs doublecork 10, bs doublecork 10.

Roope Tonteri got 3. with this one: cab 12, fs 7, bs 12.

So far a good trip to Italy.. Tomorrow is the riverjump, and the setup looks a bit scary. We’re actually jumping over a river!
