Davos, Switzerland – January 8th, 2009: Again today the Swatch TTR 6Star ONeill Evolution has been blessed with super conditions and top class riding. Two Quarterpipe qualification rounds took place with the top 8 riders of each round going through to the sudden death knockout against the 16 invited riders this Saturday night, January 10th. The 10.2 meter Quarterpipe, shaped by Claes HEgstrEm (of TAC fame), has already seen the riders obliterating the 7 meter mark, styling out spins, grabs and flips. Amplitude and trick riskiness will further increase when the finals roll around. Especially with a $100 000 USD total prize purse and 1000 Swatch TTR ranking points up for grabs in this 6Star format.
