ERIC WILLETT WINS THE FIRST 4STAR BGV BIG AIR CONTEST IN MOSCOW, RUSSIA

18/02/2013

Scuol, Switzerland – February 18, 2013 - It was an action packed weekend in downtown Moscow, with a massive Big Air setup at the VV Central Exhibition Center square. For the first time in TTR history a 4Star Big Air competition was held in Moscow, Russia, and it was a huge success. “It was such an amazing experience yet again. Winning here in this amazing capital felt really good, I am happy with my season. It’s all one big adventure“, said Eric Willett (USA), whose smooth Backside 1260 Indy grab and frontside tailslide to 270 out, took the top podium spot.
Russian Alexey Sobolev followed Willett with a Switch Backside 1260 mute Double Cork, and backside boardslide to fakie on the rails.
O’Neill Evolution winner Maxence Parrot became third with his Cab Double Cork 1260 with Melon grab, and a noseslide off the rainbow rails.

Not everything evolved around the competitions; in between snowboard action the massive crowd was entertained with Motocross and Snowmobile showcases and live acts like Xzibit. World Snowboard Tour’s Fabia Grüebler, Tour manager added: “It was our first time in Moscow. I see great potential for this sensational event, I expect it to grow and hope to welcome many more people to witness it in coming years!

The results will count towards the World Snowboard Tour Big Air Championship of 2013-2014, as our Big Air Champion 2013 Sebastien Toutant has already been crowned at the last 6Star event of the season, the Billabong Air&Style in Innsbruck.
