Seb Toutant Battles The Elements And 40 Riders To Win 3Star Showdown Over The City


The Quiksilver Showdown Over the City at Grouse Mountain was won last weekend by 16 year-old Seb Toutant from L’Assomption, Quebec. Toutant and 40 male snowboarders from across Canada, and as far as Japan and the United States battled each other and all weather conditions all weekend long.Toutant – currently ranked 9th on the SWATCH TTR World Snowboard Tour, the largest international snowboard contest body – claimed the first place prize of $10, 000 as the champion of the 3rd annual Quiksilver Showdown Over the City. The winner was determined through a best of three run eight-man final, with his patented Tootsie-roll solidifying top score from the judges. Rounding out the top three were 35 year-old Atsushi Ishikawa from Japan in third place ($2K), and 20 year-old Canadian standout Jesmond Dubeau in second place ($4k). An honourable mention went to Dave Fortin, who took the Announcers Choice award for his massive FS1080s, but could not quite link up the rails. The Jib Session held the night before, showcased the top Canadian jib talent in an one-hour jam format. Seventeen year-old Canadian Matt Munn claimed the $3k purse for best overall rider with his one-footed fast plant to board slide through the down flat down rail.Grouse Mountains Events Manager had this to say about the event, I was blown away once again by the level of riding from all the riders in attendance. They showcased some amazing talent and determination through all weather and snow conditions and had a great time in the process. A big thanks goes out to all the event sponsors and staff who worked very hard to build the course, plan the event, and make it all happen.This years course design consisted of a 70-foot step down jump that lead into a massive step-up snow pad with a 35-foot down rail and down flat down rail off the backside. The combo received excellent rider feedback on allowing them to safely progress their skills to the next level. Once again, this course offered the top talent a chance to show the world why they are among the best.Enormous crowds in attendance included premier industry media and personalities. A tremendous volume of photography and film was captured is expected to be published and broadcast far and wide for next years top magazines and videos.
