Roope Tonteri Wins The Summer Rookie Fest 2009


Although summer has arrived in Europe, the Black Yeti didnt stop and moved to Val Senales for the Summer Rookie Fest – the only Swatch TTR summer event scheduled in the Alps. The rookie champion Roope Tonteri won after a thrilling head to head final in the slopestyle contest with new Czech talent Darek True Crail Bergmann. The competition was initially scheduled on a 1Star level, but was elevated to 2Star TTR after the display of rotations up to bs1260 in the qualifiers in the amazing Gentlemen Riders Snowpark. Among the groms, the South Tyrolean talent Markino Grigis proved to be the best with a frontside 1080 on the big kicker. As for the eight competing girls, all of them from the Czech Republic, the best one was the young Diana Augustinova, protagonists of the contest.The Snowpark set up, built by the Gentlemen’s Riders crew, included a first table top with two jumps of 8 and 12m and a butterbox, a second table top with jumps of 14 and 18m and a 12-meter down rail. The riding level of the contestants from Italy, Austria, Finland and the Czech Republic were very high, but this event was not just about competitiveness. The program also featured skateboard sessions, video shootings with the pro RedBull who were invited as coaches: Filippo Kratter, Roman Dlauhy and Sarka Pancochova.As for the contest, the format scheduled a day of training, one of qualifiers and one for the finals, everything in the jam session format. During the competition we saw cab900, cab1080, fs1080 and fs1260. In the finals, the sky-high level of the two final contenders Roope Tonteri and Darek Bergmann brought to an extra final run for a direct play-off where the Finnish won with the fs1260. Unbelievable level. As in the tradition of the rookie fests, the prizes did not consist of money, but offered the competitors something more valuable for the career of young rookies: photo and video shootings with Entry Magazine and Board.TV, invitations to bigger events and surf camps offered by Protest.
