Swedish rider Stefan Karlsson came in third place.Honza _Neci Necas reached the best result among all Czech riders. After the finals _Neci evaluated course at Spindleruv Mlyn as very challenging. _Half-pipe, rail and jump – all in one. This is what you cant see at most of the places all over the world and what makes Quiksilver Snowjam unique, said Honza Necas. _As a rider you have to focus to approximately 4 to 6 jumps in half-pipe. Then comes slide at the rail and in the end there is the Big Air. You have to be careful at the in run where you have to gain the proper speed to make proper trick and land safely, added the Czech pro snowboarder.
