Lisa Wiik Takes Over The Tour Lead At 5Star Burton Canadian Open


The 5Star Burton Canadian Open in Calgary, Alberta came to a close with the slopestyle finals at the Winsport Canada Olympic Park this Sunday. It was two young guns who took the titles and put on an amazing show despite the difficult foggy conditions. 19-year old Enni Rukajarvi from Finland took her fourth TTR title this season and 17-year old Brett Esser (USA) dominated the mens finals, both awarded with 850 TTR ranking points. Lisa Wiik (NOR) was the TTR star of weekend with her second place finish in slopestyle combined with her fifth place finish in Saturdays halfpipe finals pushing her ahead of Sarka Pancochova (CZE) taking the Swatch TTR Tour lead. Rukajarvi is on a Roll in 2010The womens final on the slopestyle course saw Rukajarvi repeat her incredible success from the 6Star Burton European Open only a few weeks back. Her winning run consisted of a Cab-on to boardslide, gap 50/50, frontside 360, 50/50 on the downrail, 50/50 to indy along the wallride, a smooth frontside 360 tailgrab, backside 540 indy and a Cab 720 mute. With this result she has now moved into Swatch TTR World No.4 and is enthusiastic about her result Im happy about the TTR Top 5 and my next competitions will be the US Open and the Roxy Chicken Jam.The Chase for the 2009/2010 Womens TTR Title is HotLisa Wiik, who in 2008/2009 finished her season in TTR World No 2, was able to pull out some solid results at the Canadian Open to put her into the TTR top spot. Claiming two strong 5Star results, she displayed her experience to cope with tough conditions and strong competition both in the halfpipe and on the slopestyle course. However, her lead over Pancochova is only by a few points and with with Sina Candrian (SUI) only a few points behind after her 3rd place finish in slopestyle, there is going to be some heavy competition when the TTR Tour comes back online following the Olympics. American Brett Esser Takes His First Major Tour TitleOn the mens side, Brett Esser took his first major title today and stomped an incredibly stylish run which included a switch back 900 mute, backside 720 tail grab over the channel jump and a frontside 1080 tailgrab. He had some tough competition from the Canadian, Jon Versteeg, who took second place and Robby Balharry who landed in third.
