American riders, Sam Hulbert and Jamie Anderson walked away victorious and took home a sizable portion of the $50,000 USD prize purse and 850 Swatch TTR World Ranking points. With her win today, Jamie reclaims the TTR tour lead for the women and if she attends the Oakley Arctic Challenge and the Burton US Open, she has an excellent chance to take the 2010/11 TTR World Tour Champion title.Jamie Takes Back World No.1, Silvia Mittermueller Moves to World No. 4It was an overcast day with some light snow in the afternoon at the Canada Olympic Park and the uphill wind was a bit of a challenge, but the riders were undeterred and had a great competition. The slopestyle course was made up of five rails at the top and three jumps at the bottom. Jamie Anderson dominated in the women’s field and took back her World No. 1 position from Cilka Sadar (SLO) who had the lead after finishing second in yesterday’s halfpipe competition. Jamie was untouchable in today’s event and won with a run made up of a boardslide, a boardslide 270 out, 50-50 tail press and a 50-50 to frontside boardslide in the rail section. Jamie then put down a frontside 360, a stylish backside 180 and a switch backside 540 on the jump line. German rider, Silvia Mittermueller, took second place and moved into World No. 4 and young American, Ty Walker, took third place and is now in World No. 9 at only 13-years old. Jamie was pumped on her win today and is looking forward to going after the TTR Tour Champion title saying, “I’m extremely stoked to take another win here at the Canadian Open. And, I’m definitely heading to the Arctic Challenge and then the US Open. I would love to grab the title and do as good as I can for the rest of the winter.”In the men’s competition, Sam Hulbert had the winning run of the day which consisted of of a fontside 180 to switch 50-50, frontside boardslide, boardslide to 270 and a 50-50 to backside 360 in the rail section.
