Oneill Evolution Womens Slopestyle Qualifications Bathed In Sunshine


Once again the ONeill Evolution saw a spectacular day of snowboarding under clear blue skies for the Womens Slopestyle qualifications. Topping the qualifications on the progressive course at this Swatch TTR 6Star World Snowboard Tour event, with a clean run off the big kicker was Swedens Mimmi Sandstrom. The 21 year old pulled out a high 180 melon grab before heading onto the box on the bottom section and was awarded the top score of 89.33. Its a great jump, said Mimmi. Its not scary in the air, but going into it you have to go really fast so that is actually when it is the most scary.The landing is good if you manage to reach it. Its the perfect landing for that jump. On the first run I did a backside 180, but I fell on my 360 on my second run. I hope to go for it a bit more in the semis. I have to try more spins for sure. You get so many days practice here which is great so you have loads of time to practice on your jump.Talking about the selection of obstacles to choose from at the bottom of the slopestyle course she said: I went on the box this time. I havent tried the other ones. The rail has that gap between the rail and the kicker so Im not sure about that one, but well see. Right now I am just really hoping to make it through the semi-finals. With the mens Halfpipe qualifications ready to start tomorrow morning, all the stars of the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour are in Davos and getting in their practice time. I think its going to be fun, said Janne Korpi. I just got here and had a little practice session on the halfpipe as well as the slopestyle. The jump is really good. I think its something you can push yourself on so I am looking forward to it, he said. The Mens 6Star Halfpipe qualifications are on tomorrow, January 4th, from 10.30am followed by the womens Halfpipe semi finals. 10:30 11:30 HP Men Qualification Heat 1 11:45 12:45 HP Men Qualification Heat 2 13:00 14:00 HP Men Qualification Heat 3 14:15 15:15 HP Women Semi Finals RESULTS: SLOPESTYLE QUALIFICATION WOMEN 1.
