Elias Elhardt And Enni Rukajarvi Win 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam


It was a perfect day up on the Dachstein glacier in Austria for the 4Star Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, where riders were greeted with bluebird skies, warm weather and light winds. The day kicked off with mens and womens slopestyle semi-final rounds in the morning and finished off with finals in the afternoon. German rider, Elias Elhardt, brought his A-game to win the event for the second consecutive year, as did reigning TTR Tour Champion, Enni RukajErvi (FIN), which boosted her into the womens TTR World Ranking lead. Both riders earned 500 Swatch TTR Ranking Points and left the glacier with a healthy slice of the $20,000 USD prize purse.Slopestyle Machine, Enni RukajErvi, Stomps Her Way to Another VictoryEnni RukajErvi reclaimed her TTR World No.1 position after todays slopestyle victory, putting her in an excellent place before the height of the Northern Hemisphere winter, which kicks off in January. RukajErvi was untouchable in the finals and stomped every trick textbook style in her final run, which consisted of a huge Cab 540, frontside 360 and a backside 540. RukajErvi was very excited at the end of the day and is looking forward to the upcoming season, I plan to ride all the 6Star and some of the 5Star TTR events, so that I get the seven results I need. Rounding out the podium were up-and-coming riders, British Aimee Fuller in second place and 16-year old Katarzyna Rusin (POL) in third place, both now in the TTR Top 30.

With this first solid TTR result Elias earned himself a Top 50 spot in the TTR World Rankings.

Gjermund Braaten (NOR) ended up in sixth place at this 4Star event, but will still maintain the World No.1 position in the TTR Ranking. The talented rider has a relaxed attitude about his early season Tour lead, Being in the top of the TTR means a lot to me. I’m going to Beijing next month and then do the other Air & Styles, Burton European Open, O’Neill Evolution, and see how it goes. Its definitely a good start.With the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam wrapped up, all eyes will move to the much anticipated 6Star Air & Style Beijing presented by Oakley and Shaun White, where some of the worlds top male riders will compete for the first major title of the 2010/11 TTR World Tour.
