Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour: Progression in Snowboarding

“Progression” is the fourth segment from a collection cut out of the 2009/2010 Swatch TTR TV Show series. The 2009/10 season was a year where the game changed on the TTR Tour with riders learning different variations of double corks in both the pipe and on the slopestyle course. Shaun White, Luke Mitrani and Louie Vito all blew the top off the double cork trend in the halfpipe at the 2009 Burton New Zealand Open and set a new standard on the competition circuit. In this video, we hear from Marko Grilc, Mikkel Bang, Iouri Podladtchikov, Christian Haller, Torah Bright, Torstein Horgmo, Travis Rice and US Snowboard Coach, Bud Keene, on what it’s like to do a double cork and how this type of trick has pushed the progression of snowboarding. Alongside the interviews is footage of Travis Rice and David Benedek throwing doubles at the 2006 Air & Style Munich and shots of Sebastien Toutant, Shaun White, Marko Grilc, Iouri Podladtchikov and others flaunting their double cork skills.To see this show in its entirety please visit http://www.ttrworldtour.com/multimedia/tv-schedule.html for television airing times in your region.

Burton European Open 2013 – Slopestyle Wrap Up & Powder Turns

The Slopestyle competition at this years 6Star Burton European Open didn't go as planned with Men's finals and the entire Women's event having to be cancelled. Instead everyone went shredding the powder that came with the bad weather. In the end the girls got to ride some powder and split the prize money evenly. For the men, the scores of Wednesday’s Semi-Finals would be counted as the final results, leaving Torstein Horgmo to take center stage on the podium, with Mark McMorris and Sebastien Toutant taking second and third respectively. Torstein said: „Six years ago I broke my back here in Laax at the BEO, now I’m back for the first time and I won, it can’t be better! It has been an amazing week, too bad the weather didn’t allow to ride the finals today, but we all gave our best yesterday.“ These results also count towards the Overall and Slopestyle World Snowboard Tour rankings. Mark McMorris moves into the top spot of the World Snowboard Tour Slopestyle ranking with 801.62 points, pushing Roope Tonteri (FIN) into 2nd place. Sebastien Toutant moves into 8th place both Overall and in Slopestyle, and Torstein moves into 13th place in the Slopestyle rankings.
