Wiig Wins Five(5)Star Honda Session; Horgmo Moves Into Swatch TTR World No. 5


Vail, Colorado USA – February 10th 2008: The Slopestyle portion of the sixth annual Honda Session, a Swatch TTR FIVE(5)STAR Event, went down last night in Vail, Colorado USA. The Session took place under bright lights with the events signature pyrotechnics blasting a huge flame into the air as riders hit the last jump. Andreas Wiig (NOR) took the title as Torstein Horgmo (NOR) moved into Swatch TTR World No. 5 with his second place finish, knocking down Chas Guldemond (USA), who finished third, into TTR World No. 6. Horgmo was more than pumped after learning the results from the slopestyle competition: Im so stoked about moving up to TTR World No. 5! he exclaimed. Ive been liking the TTR system more and more. It keeps getting more legit. All the contests on the TTR circuit are the best out there.The Slopestyle contest was a jam format, meaning riders had 90-minutes to throw down as many runs as they could squeeze into the time frame. The course was made up of a huge four-jump line plus a skate-style rail setup at the bottom of the course. Each jump got progressively larger with the first jump measuring in at 50-feet, the second at 60-feet, the third at 70-feet and the finally the last jump was a massive 80-footer. Needless to say, the riders were putting up some massive airs.
