March 12, 2012 – Billabong Flaunt It, presented by Sony Ericsson arrived in Quebec to Mont Saint-Sauveur’s Snowpark this weekend for the final Canadian stop of the tour. After a rainy week Saturday shaped up to be hot and sunny; a perfect day for the ladies to all compete. Twenty-seven (27) ladies from all over Eastern Canada and the US came out Quebec to compete on a slopestyle course that was designed with tons of options from progressive to easier features for the riders to session.
Breanna Stangeland and Brooke Voigt, both from Alberta made their journey to Quebec worthwhile by cleaning up on the podium. Stangeland took home 1st place in Slopestyle, 2nd place in the Rail Jam, and rounded out her day also taking home the Nixon Style Award. Her first place Slopestyle run consisted of a frontside 360 off the 50-foot jump, to a backside 540 off the 55-foot jump, and finishing off with a boardslide 270 out on the handrail. Billabong’s Brooke Voigt came in a close 2nd place with a frontside 360 indy, to backside 180 grab, to lipslide on the handrail. Quebec’s Laurie Blouin took home 3rd place, as well as the Dakine Best Trick with her backside 540 on the 50-foot jump.
The rail jam went down in the afternoon on a stair set with a flat down and a handrail giving the ladies some options to throw down their best tricks. Jenn Cusick from Ohio drove 13 hours to Quebec and came in 1st place with a frontside 180 tail press on the handrail. Stangeland followed close by in 2nd place and Voigt rounded out the podium in 3rd place.
